This was at 300mm + a Kenko 1.4 extender. It's a little soft due to steam coming off the river with air temps around 10F.

Using the 70-300 L + Kenko Pro TC 1.4 on my 7D I would get locked out of continuous shooting. I took it off the camera and just used the lens and was back up to burst shots immediately.

After I put the TC back on, I could only shoot one picture at a time again. It also did something funny where after each shot, the viewfinder would shake (the picture). The lens AF was working back and forth rapidly for about 10 seconds.

I sent it back, is the MC4 version of the Kenko any better?

I can't answer your question about the MC4 version - but your experience sounds consistent with any other reviews I've encountered... rapid AI Servo shooting with the Kenko is likely unheard of...

my own experience with the 60D is that I was darn lucky if it locked on - 'ever'

My experience with the Pro300 is the same with my 50D, not suitable for BIF at all. I lost a couple of sequences of eagle takeoffs b/c I got to greedy seeking the extra reach and got a lot of blur instead. I could see using it for tripod mounted moon shots or MF stuff, but not a great combo with the 70-300.

Fortunately I did not need the extender today, although the heavy coat was not enough to keep the chill away...

No ****, this is one if the most beautiful pictures ive ever seen!

What is the ground made of?

Wow, thanks David :D

It is a beach but not the nicest sand you'll find! The tide goes out a long way and leaves a sand and mud mixture. But hey, it might be mud but as we know, it's amazing what a nice bit of light can do!!

Thanks again

^^ Congrats and welcome. White lenses definitely have a different presence. Every time I get this lens out around family they all go 'oh here he goes with his pap lens'!!
