Well if you need a great zoom for regular tele-focal lengths, 70-200mm f/2.8 L II IS is the way to go. It works extremely well for portraits and stage shows. But it you need 400mm buy this zoom. You can attach a 2x extender to the 70-200mm, but that is nowhere close to what the 70-200mm does all by itself. I have tried it, and found the 70-200mm f/2.8 L II +2x extender combination to be a long, heavy, not so fast and not so great zoom. The 1.4x extender is more tolerable on most long lenses.
In fact, if you have a camera that allows f/8 autofocus, the 100-400L+1.4x can be used too. That may work as well on the 400 f/5.6 prime, if you keep the shutter speeds high. Unfortunately, Canon does not have any affordable lenses beyond the 400mm range, so we have no other options.

Fantastic shot! I would have thought it was taken with a 500 f/4L!

Thank you Jan. 500 f/4, I wish! It helps when they let you get close and allow time to make adjustments. There were five Green Herons around me within 20 feet for about 20 minutes. They weren't stressed at all by me maneuvering my bright orange kayak for the best light. Really cool experience.

Happy birthday.
