Post your shots from Canon's longest MkII supertele!

Got mine a few days ago, have only had a couple of chances to use it, and those were close to home.  Looking forward to having a bit more free time to travel to some better local spots (Plum Island, etc.). 

All shots taken handheld, first two with the bare lens on an overcast, drizzly late afternoon (note the ISO used), the third on a sunny day (only one this week!) with the 1.4x III, and the last one

Thanks for looking!

EOS 1D X, EF 600mm f/4L IS II USM, 1/320 s, f/4, ISO 6400

EOS 1D X, EF 600mm f/4L IS II USM, 1/250 s, f/4, ISO 6400

EOS 1D X, EF 600mm f/4L IS II + EF 1.4x III Extender, 1/640 s, f/5.6, ISO 100

...and one bonus shot, the first one I took with the new lens.  It was pouring rain and dark outside, so I decided to treat it as an indoor portrait lens.  ;)  This one is with the 1D X, f/4, 1/160 s, ISO 10000 and handheld.

Richard Lane:
Congrats on the new lens John!  What a great combination between the 1DX and 600II. 

Bummer about the weather, but I really like the 1st shot, as the squirrel really "pops off the screen" and the ISO 6400 appears very well controlled too.  Nice capture on the 3rd shot as well.., the Heron looks like a"flasher."

I wish you many incredible shots with your new toy!


That squirrel is very impressive, quite a job handheld at 600mm. Congrats.

Any noise reduction for the ISO 6400?

Thanks, Rich and wtlloyd!

Nothing special - all shots were converted from RAW with default settings in DPP. 

Are you using a replacement lens foot with your 600?
