300 2.8 plus 2XTC, AF of the 7D handled 19 shots...all sharp.

QUOTED IMAGE

Again 2xTC, these two were moving full pelt and I hardly had time to react. Again AF and the 7D were spot on.

QUOTED IMAGE

Awesome considering the TCs.

Great Shot Jay...

Thanks...

It's kinda different I think. They had the BAs lined up on a pretty narrow taxiway so they had to go single file for the return to parking.

Bonus! :D

Has anyone tried the 300 2.8 with a 7D and a Kenko 1.4x TC? I've seen a lot of folks using this lens with the Canon TC but not much if any with the Kenko.

The Kenko Pro 1.4x TC is very closely matched to the Canon in quality. Not so the 2x though. Canon is the safest bet, of course.

Have a look through the thread, anything I took with a 1.4TC is a kenko, I do not have nor need a canon as IQ is (many do say) better with the Kenko. No weather sealing though :(

I'm in! ...as of the arrival of a giant, sealed Canon carton earlier this afternoon. Like everyone else who gets this lens, I'm tied up for the next day-and-a-half. Headed off into the bush on Thursday and Friday and I'll see what I can bring back.

Any recommendations for a backpack/camera bag to carry the 300mm safely?

I just got hold of this lens a couple of weeks back and while it comes with a nice solid "make up" case, its totally useless in the field (which is what this lens is for). I currently lug the lens with the camera attached over my shoulder as I trek (it has a lenscoat covering) but its not safe in case I trip or fall or even turn around too quickly - risking the lens being hit.

I am keen to discover how owners of this lens carry this lens with camera attached in the field. Esp. in a manner which keeps the lens safe of course.

Cheers
Harry

Sure there was a thread about this recently. Anyhow, I have two bags that might work for you. The Thinktank Glass Taxi will take the lens and camera with the hood reversed. You can't carry much else though. The Lowepro 600AW will take the lens and camera with the hood in the shooting position. I's a bit heavier than the Glass Taxi, but it is my preferred solution.

My prefered large backpack is the Lowepro Computrekker Plus AW.

It will hold the 300 hood reversed and still leave room for a body at the top of the bag as well as room for a 100-400 and a 70-200 on either side and more!
