I beleive they left off the 400mm f/2.8L IS becuse that lens could already focus on the 1DX with the 2X extender prior to the firmware update, because it's max. aperture is only f/5.6.   :)

Except...they do list 300/2.8L IS, 300/2.8L IS II, and 400/2.8L IS, as well as a whole bunch of other f/2.8 primes and zooms, all of which could AF at f/5.6 with cross-type points prior to the v1.1.1 firmware.  They also list a bunch of f/2.8 and f/4 lenses on the 1.4x list, and on that list, the 400/2.8L IS II is included.  They just don't list the 400/2.8L IS II on the 2x list.
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses

Hey, they simply make mistakes on their web page updates (in addition to omitting features from cameras  ::) )!

I was merely reassuring the posters concerns regarding support for the 400mm f/2.8 plus 2X combination, whether or not it was on the list.
