With my 400mm f2.8 I use a ballhead and Wimberly sidekick. I really like this setup because it so quickly converts from a full gimbal head to a ball head for shooting with shorter lenses.
One thing that you may want to check into is the compatibility of the 400 f2.8 MkI and the 2x MkIII converter. Unless I am reading the 2x MkIII manual (http://gdlp01.c-wss.com/gds/8/0300004658/01/extender-ef-2x-iii-en.pdf) wrong, it says "Using an Extender with this lens may result in incorrect autofocus." The 2x MkII manual (http://gdlp01.c-wss.com/gds/0/0300003490/01/extenderef2xii-en.pdf) contains no such warning.
You are absolutely correct in the information you posted. Thanks.
Thanks for your reply. As I mentioned previously, I am not looking to sell to the US, as I will be travelling to the UK for work, but most importantly from my research I discovered that they are much more expensive than in the US. I believe new they are around £ 3,600 or US$ 5,600 and nobody - or very few - have stock.He's an idea: Buy 1 and.... take photos with it.
That's very clever, well done. Here's a sweet.
