FYI, the Angle Finder B is 0.8x magnification, the Angle Finder C is 1.25x and 2.5x. If you're focusing through it, the C is easier.

Even with the 5Diii and 1DX you still select "Fully Automatic" but instead of it doing it all itself it prompts you when you have to change the AFMA values manually.
notice that you use a 1" clamp. Any reason for the 1" versus 2" clamp? I would think with your big glass, you would want a larger clamp for greater security.
I agree with kennephoto, you will miss IS at the long end!Yeah I hadn't really thought about that. I was more thinking range and image quality. From The digital picture it looks like the 70-200 f/4 (non-IS) has better IQ than any of the other 70-200 versions except the 2.8 II.
If no one minds one more potentiall stupid question (which I'll research some articles on anyway):
Can a polarizing filter be helpful at times for wildlife (on water, bright sun, etc.)? I've gotten great results with mine for landscapes, but "yes" for wildlife in certain conditions or not really?
hooked up 5D MK III + EF 50mm f/1.4
Tried the "Fully Automatic" mode ...
Might the answer be to rent a 100-400 and call it a day and then, if I love it, buy the 100-400II one day?
Might be...if you're willing to carry the weight. If you'll need 400mm much of the time, that's the way to go, else the 70-300L is the better lens.
Can we assume that the 70-300L met your expectations after putting it through its paces?
The 100-400 weights 3lbs or so, bring a tripod
