No apology necessary and I love to handhold my 300 f/2.8 IS II with extenders as well - it's my most-used lens.  The 5DIII is a great body as well, no matter what lens is attached.

Me too. Love that 300 on the 5d3. However, is even better on the 1dx as I find that body easier to keep that big white steady to shoot handhold. Think the higher height of the body is causing this.

My love for the big White became that big I ordered a new baby, 200-400 1,4, which I am going to pickup at Thursday.

Me too. Love that 300 on the 5d3. However, is even better on the 1dx as I find that body easier to keep that big white still to shoot handhold. Think the higher height of the body is causing this.

Yep, love the 1D X even more, too, and congrats on the new addition to the big white arsenal! I'm sure that you'll have a killer kit with the combination.
