Does the 500mm f4 IS now work with 2x TC III and the 1dx? Because of the AF Problem at f8.

I don't think the 1DX can AF beyond F8 irrespective of what lens / TC combo it has mounted on it. only 1D up to MkIV can do that. And even then, AF will be rather slow and limited anyway.

This isn't quite right, the 1D, 1D2, 1D2N, 1D3, 1D4, 1DS, 1DS2, 1DS3, 1DX and 5D3 will all autofocus at f8 (500 and 2x TC). Pretty sure you'll only get centre point AF though.

Thanks for clarifying.

Apparently it's only from firmware 1.1.1 onwards that you get this though. The 5D3 also seems to need an update in order to do this with firmware 1.2.1.

You learn something new every day I guess :)

Sad to say that mine is up for sale, 4 month old has to take priority, can't justify having the cash tied up in a lens :(

Can anyone give a tip for a good tripod or monopod to use with the 500mm f4 IS which is not too cheap!?

Look here for all your 500mm needs;

For a monopod the basic aluminum Bogen 680 for $80.00-ish is just super.

That or millions of years of natural selection and adaptation. It's lovely either way.
