We had the Avalon Airshow this past weekend and I have to say the lens performed a treat.

I managed to work around the less than ideal lighting the mostly cloudy weather provided, and here are just four of many.

Somewhat the AF actually work with double extender :-D And I can see the moon keep moving toward the left during the shooting.

How did you stack the 1.4 and 2x version 3? I thought they were no stackable?

True. I would have to use a hammer to stack them.... ;-)a I reckon one of the two he was using is not a Canon.

Cheers.

:-P:-P:-P That was not that difficulty.

Bryan Carnathan did the same thing with his 600L II "http://www.the-digital-picture.com/Reviews/Ca​non-EF-600mm-f-4-L-IS-II-USM-Lens-Review.aspx"

"Stacking a Canon EF 1.4x Extender with a Canon EF 2x Extender requires a 12mm extension tube to be mounted between the two – to make the fit possible. The result is 600mm x 2 x 1.4 = 1680mm."

BTW shooting the moon with above set-up, the view finder was just simply BLACK, so used live view then :-)

Oooh, neat idea - I'd never have thought of it myself. Must give it a try.

One more thing, you may try with Mode 1 Image Stabilize during manual focus - I used Mode 3, which was rather useless :cry:

I'll probably use a tripod. That's a great moon shot!

A tripod is a must, and remove shutter cable also needed - soon you will notice significant movement even with focusing.

I didn't need mirror luck-up as Bryan - I set ISO to 400, and my shutter speed was around 1/100s or 1/150s.

Have fun :-)

Wonderful lens - bought it last Tuesday and put it to use at the weekend at the Australian air show at Avalon. Here are 2 from the Friday night session...
