Another couple I took while testing the Canon 2x III TC I just received:

First one is a full crop of my dog's eye using the Canon 2x III, wide open on the 7D:
EXIF: f5.6, 600mm
I also include the full frame

Second one is a shot of a box, again full crop but this time with stacked TC's:
Canon 2x III + Kenko 1.4x DGX
Even though Exif are reported correctly, the 7D still tries to AF due to the Kenko DGX fooling the camera. AF works fine with peripheral points on the 7D and wirh ALL points on the 600D. Lens is stopped down just 1/3 of a stop (f9):
EXIF: f8, 840mm

Got my lens today, and rather than sample shots the light broke slightly through the misty sky so I went out and took some wildlife shots as this lens is intended to be used. I was really impressed, these were taken with the 1.4x TC Canon, at iso 1600, cropped to around 10Mpx (ish) and fully processed. There's more info on my flickr and in the exif. So far Im quite impressed by the sharpness, lots to try out and a 2x TC to get soon!
