Nice shots all. Another with the 300f2.8 ii with 2xiii extender.

Well done. Beautiful!! The EF300 2.8 II pairs very excellent with 1.4 and 2.0 extenders.

Hi,
    Saw a fellow birder with the EF300mm F2.8L IS II + 2xIII setup and I want to know how sharp the image will be with this setup. I ask him to let me try to take a shot with my 7D2. I quickly point at the Kingfisher on top of the tree and take a shot at wide open (F5.6)... The AF is still very fast with this setup. When I open the image in LR...  WOW... very sharp at 100% crop even without any additional sharpening... just the default LR sharpening.


EF300mm F2.8 IS II + 2xIII F5.6 on 7D2.

    Have a nice day.

PS: "We are the EF 300mm F2.8L IS II. Open your wallet and surrender your $$. We will add superior image quality to your images. You'll never look back. Resistance is futile.”   ;D

I had picked up a used 1DX body on my way to the race weekend and this is taken on the first day of shooting with it. It is significantly faster, more accurate and consistent in focusing than my 5D3.

That's impressive!

Thanks Jack & Click.

I guess there is something to the old saying of "soft light yields soft pictures" - the shots taken in sunshine just have a higher in-focus rate than when it's cloudy.
