The moon shots were posted just as universal images for comparisons. I am interested in extra range for nature shots.

Incorporating an extender into those lenses would be great, as the optics are matched to the particular lens (that is how the 200-400 is). However, every big white is pretty new, including the 800, so maybe for the next refresh? It would be cool if they built in a 1.4, and then gave you a 1.6 external extender that is also optically matched to the lens so if you still need the 2x, then you would add that extra .6 the traditional way. It would probably add $1,000-1,200 to the price of the lens, but it would be a great innovation in my opinion.
Very nice. What lens were you using? The Kenko extension tubes allow autofocus, so I would get them over the cheaper ones. Also note they are only in a kit for $199 with a 12mm, a 20mm and a 36mm tube. The Canon 12mm is sold alone for $84. The product description does not state it, but I am sure theirs is compatible with the AF as well.
The Canon IS are not very popular. Serious birdies tend to go for Swarovski...
How do the birdies hold them? With their wings?
Or is birdies : lift :: birders : elevator? On this side of the pond, a birdie is what little kids call a bird, or one under par on the golf course...
Seriously, I wonder why the Canon IS binocs aren't more popular. Audubon Society shops here often don't even carry them.
Here's something you don't see every day.
Burrowing owl. These little birds are the only owls that dig burrows. They're also diurnal unlike most of their relatives.
Some of us like to spend most of our time with a tripod, others hand holding, and others in between. So let's get on with it and each do our own thing, especially we amateurs who just want to enjoy ourselves and not make a living from our photos.
We shouldn't turn this thread into the usual rhetoric so here is another hand held shot from last weekend.
