A very good photo without reading the details. Then seeing it was with stacked TCs (internal + external) it's all the more impressive. I imagine that rig isn't exactly comfortable to walk around with (I carry my 1Dx + 500mm f/4 + TCs and that isn't!) but the image you've achieved speaks for itself :)

the 200-400 w/ the internal is the real deal. I can hald hold it all day. i usually carry around the 600 ii which is a little heavier.
