One of my first attempts with this combo, I was on the fence with the 2x 111 or 1.4 X 111
Pleasantly surprised
That's fantastic! However I counted only 19 ducklings! Where is the 20th?  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

EDIT: Never mind I found the 20th at your site ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Thank you, Click. Generally I am satisfied with the work of this lens with 2.0x III on Canon 5DsR.

Funny, I never noticed this thread.  Since maybe 60% of my shots are with 300 2.8 II X2 III I should have been posting.  Here is one from last May with the 1D4 at Haida Gwaii.  Af was not the greatest; if you lost it it was lost but I got a lot of flight shots by pre-focussing to the anticipated distance and then hitting the back button when the bird was under the red square(s).  Usually center point with expansion.  Can't wait to have this lens combo with the 1DX II!

Thanks Click.  It's nice to have a hobby where Lady Luck often delivers.

Canon 6D on a tripod. Live View. ISO 200 underexposed by 2 stops. Only thing done in post was big time crop.

Great shot.  Nice detail and I like the exposure.

I shoot wildlife with this combo quite a bit.  This shot was taken just after sunrise, the light was nice but limited.

300 f/2.8L II IS with 2x III extender, 5DsR 1/1000 f/5.6 ISO3200
This shot is a little noisy, I normally try to keep my ISO at 1600 or lower with the 5DsR.
