Exceptional photo with 2x extender. Little or no degradation - have you any more to show?
Just goes to show the quality of the prime!
Thanks for posting.

Philippine Duck (Anas luzonica) by alabang, on Flickr

Anas luzonica is endemic to the Philippines, being recorded from all the major islands and eight smaller islands. Records since 1980 derive from c.30 localities, most on Luzon and Mindanao. Records from Siquijor and the Sulus remain unsubstantiated. A steep population decline was evident by the mid-1970s, with high numbers recorded at only a few sites in the following decade, e.g. Candaba Marsh (Luzon) which probably supported many thousands in the early 1980s. Subsequent local extinctions and near-disappearances have occurred in several significant sites, including Candaba Marsh and Buguey wetlands (where several thousand were recorded in 1983). Important current areas include Polillo Island (240 seen and an estimated 3,000 present in 1996), Subic Bay (600 seen in 1997), Magat dam (2,000 were seen in 2001) and Malasi lakes (1,320 were recorded in 2002), Luzon. Other recent records come from Mangatarem, Pangasinan (east of Zambales Mountains IBA) where 70 individuals were counted on the Barabac River inside the Manleluag Spring National Park, Cantilan mangroves in Surigao del Sur and from a mangrove fishpond in Bicol Region, Southern Luzon1. In 1993, its population was estimated at 10,000-100,000, but by 2002 fewer than 10,000 birds were thought to remain.

Incredible shot.  Very dramatic 3/4 angle, and super sharp.  The 2nd OOF duck really shows the tight depth of field and the sharp focus too.  Nice!

5D2, 300mm f/2.8L IS II, 2X III, lens correction in LR4 otherwise SOOC.  Then again in that much light you could get a decent photo with just about anything, you'd just need to be closer.
See what I see: 6500K, 160 cd/m^2, ICC 2, gamma 2.2.

Thanks Scotty! I was pretty much surprised that I got this shot so well.

Great images!

I have a quick question:

Did any of you own the mk1 of this lens previously? If so, what would be your key reason to upgrade? I owned the mk1 once, and I can't think of anything other than IS and weight to be better, an incredible lens.

Grey Heron (Ardea cinerea) by alabang, on Flickr

The Grey Heron (Ardea cinerea), is a wading bird of the heron family Ardeidae, native throughout temperate Europe and Asia and also parts of Africa. It is resident in the milder south and west, but many birds retreat in winter from the ice in colder regions. It has become common in summer even inside the Arctic circle along the Norwegian coast.

Just got this lens a couple weeks ago to compliment my 600II and hopefully mostly retire my 100-400.  These shots are from the Yukon Wildlife Preserve near Whitehorse, Yukon Canada.  The sheep is bare lens, the arctic foxes and the Canadian lynx are with the 1.4IIITC and the Caribou is with the 2.0IIITC.  All shot handheld.

Great shots; It seems you could get very close to get these shots.
