I read somewhere that a person was using a non-reporting extender and taking F8 shots with decent focus. I decided to try it today. I added Kenko 1.4 DGX to my 400 f5.6. I was really impressed at how well the 5d3 handled the focus. It seemed pretty quick and very accurate.

Here are a couple shots of birds in the back yard.

1st one ISO 1600 at 100% crop
2nd one iso 3200 at 100% crop

I'm really amazed at the quality at the pixel level at these iso. These had some basic raw adjustments done in Lightroom 4.1.

By the way, by adding a 1.4 extender to a lens you use with a 7D you get about 97% of the height or width in pixels of the subject on the 5D3 with the cost one stop of light. Since the 5D3 seems much better than 1 stop of iso better than 7d it might have certain advantages in bird photography.

Thanks for confirming that this works

Took it out to Filoli gardens yesterday:

Something I've noticed when compared to my 5D II, the DOF seems a lot smaller. Not sure if it's because of the sensor, but there is a lot more bokeh. In similar bright sunny day light conditions, I'm getting 1/7999 shutter speed compared to 1/4000 on my 5D II. Seems like there's a lot more sensitivity.

These pictures were taken with my 135L @ f/2 using the center focus point.

There are more photos on my Flickr page in my sig of my friends who I shot. Very sharp and the focus is incredible.

The only difference I see is the better ISO performance. I will not spend 3000 dollars to buy 5d3 unless I want ISO booster.

Hi, did you use any external flash to illuminate the girl's face?
