And ....

he was focusing BIF just nice even with 600mm + 2XIII see:

http://www.birdsasart-blog.com/2016/05/28/individual-birds-in-flight-at-1200mm-not-possible-or-is-it-with-the-1dx-mark-ii/

That time he was trying to make 10$ by selling the Lens Drive When AF Impossible Guide   !!!
(As if setting it to False is not mentioned to about tens of sites about AF settings suggestions ;D )

By the way Neuro thanks for the definition. English is not my native language and I used to know the more common meaning - mainly because of the movies - of "mercenary" as a noun.

It's certainly not the $10; but I would hate to enrich such mercenary, as neuro puts it, duplicity.

lol, that's funny. 

I wonder why he puts his AFMA setting on each of those photos.  It's not like the +4 AFMA is of value to anyone else... or even himself, if he swaps that lens between his 1DX and 5D4.

Surely you read that his D5 bit the dust and he has sent it back to B&H, and the Nikon 600 doesn't focus as good as Canon using outer points. Also:

"The Canon 400mm DO II  is an incredible tool. I miss mine. Either bare or with the 1.4X TC it makes a great flight lens. With the 2X TC it gives you 800mm of hand held full frame reach.... At this time, Nikon has nothing that compares with the 400 DO II. "

Withdrawal symptoms!   I simply could not give up my 400 DO II so Canon have me hooked!

I wonder how many people actually follow these internet critics (making $/click) down these equipment rabbit trails?

My stuff works well for me. It will never matter to me who else uses what. My problem has never ever been the gear. The biggest problems I face is composition / lighting / laziness when shooting. I think talent comes into play more with composition and lighting than gear. Just my opinion. Not going to argue about differing opinions.
