Depending on what you shoot and light/aperture/DOF, re composing sometimes does not give best results. When possible, I use the multi controller to move the focus point.

Agree 100% with Neuro's assessment. In my view the only regret you will have is not having proper support and watching the big glass hit the ground. I have used the Wimberley WH-200 and it is very nice. I personally have the same RRS setup as Neuro describes, with the only difference being that I have the TVC-33S (the S stands for "short") which I prefer for travel convenience.
Does anyone here use two 1.4X extenders? If so, can you tape one set of pins and say focus at f8 on a canon ef 400 L f5.6?
Right now I use a 5d mk iii and I find it quite capable with the extender taped . I guess I am thinking, when the new firmware comes in the spring, can I feasibly have a 800 f8(f11 reality)? I understand that the image may degrade, and it will be slower, but I was wondering if anyone with 1d series has tried this?
I am seriously thinking about getting one of the Kenko tele's, but has anyone had any experience using the 2X tele's with this lens?
Your kestral looks awesome, Lnguyen1203. Is that image cropped? If not, even with the 1.4x on the 70-300L you were able to get awfully close to that bird!
Thanks for availing the results of your experiment, Lnguyen1203, that's really helpful. But just to be clear, the Canon 1.4X III only fits/works on the 70-300L throughout the latter part of the zoom range, right? Zoom it in to far and glass meets glass--ouch--right?
I did a quick and dirty experiement today to check the exposure compensation.
#1 photo: 5D3, Kenko 1.4X TC, 70-300L, 0 EV, blown highlight is evidence, couldn't be recovered in LR4
#2 photo: same as above with -1 EV compensation, much better, some highlight on the bird is still blown.
These are quick and dirty experiements, so appologize to those of you who are purists
Lnguyen1203, are you saying that whenever you mount your Kenko 1.4x to your 70-300L you set the 5D3's exposure compensation to +1?
Appreciate your confirmation, Lnguyen1203. I could never tell for sure, from what others all over the internet have said about this combo, until your definitive statement. I'll be ordering up one Kenko Teleplus PRO 300 DGX 1.4x AF Teleconverter. Thanks!
