Quite a learning curve this morning, I wasn't happy using the 300 with the 1.4x teleconverter, images weren't at all sharp.
Then I discovered shutter anti-shock, made a heck of a difference!

One question: are any IS adjustments necessary when using a lens like the 300 that has OIS? I had the body IS on AUTO.
I noticed a menu option for "lens priority" in IS but couldn't fathom it out.
The 300 with the MC-14 produces very sharp images, there are some examples in my gallery if you're interested.

You don't need to make any adjustments to IS, in my experience if you have OIS switched on in the lens this ensures IBIS is switched on, if you switch off lens OIS it also switches off IS in the body.

I hope this helps.
