100-400mm as an Emergency Macro -

While out looking for birds and other wildlife, occasionally you see something small that begs to have it picture taken. With the super closeup focusing ability of this lens, great shots are possible - try that with your 600mm !!  ;)

I took this lens out last weekend with my new 5D Mk III to get a feel for this combination, and here are a few samples. Interestingly I hadn't thought of this as a landscape lens before, but now that I do, it opens a whole new world of possibilities :)

I just bought this lens and made it out for about 30 mins until the heat killed me off (Dubai summer is horrid), here are the first images I took, so the AF is a million miles faster than my old Sigma 150-500, I'm well chuffed with my purchase  :)

I went from the Sigma 150-500 to the 100-400L as well, the loss in focal length is well worth the gain in image quality, AF speed, handling and portability. Since I sold the Sigma, my monopod hasn't seen any use because I'm able to hand hold the 100-400L all day. I am hoping for an updated version though as it's getting quite dated by now.

By the way when I was in Dubai, one of the locals said Dubai has two seasons: Summer and 'Hell', so good luck over there  :-\

First let me say this, you guys have amazing pictures  :D, i am an amateur and i like birds photography so i got a used 100-400 last week, done a few tests with my 600D and the AF is working and the quality seems good, but i am not 100% sure, the photos below were taken on my way back from an astrophotography camp, i didn't have much time due to the schedule, but at least got to take some real world tests, your feedback is welcomed  :)

I can't wait to collect my new 1.4xTC III in a couple of days, it will become a permanent fixture on my 100-400L Mk I, I will be venturing out this weekend to the local wetland hides, so wading birds with some flying raptors are my expected subjects.  Here's hoping for some good quality images from the combo, would anyone have any tips or recomendations of this combo on a 70D?
Thanks in advance (feeling excited 8) )

Hi guys,
I finally got my 1.4xTCIII, the AF does not work, so I tried the "tape" method last night, basically you place a small piece of Sellotape over the three pins to the left of the lens side of the TC and hey presto, AF works.
Now I really need to get out with my new combo!!!!
Pic 1 is the pins covered
Pic 2 is the affected connections on the lens.
