Love the 1.4x for "slow" or stationary targets. :)

I have to admit there is less IQ loss using it than cropping but when you post most people would never know it. I'm having too much fun with all the focusing options but I don't mind centre point/expansion if I have to.

Great for stationary like you say which will be my primary use at 560mm. Canon says you need to include the crop factor in the formula so it is 784.

Easy to track this with the centre point.

Mk II or Mk III?

I have a 1.4x Tamron that I've yet to use w/this lens.

Like others, my 1.4x MK II slows down AF a bit too much. BIFs no, but everything else yes! Also stopping down helps, but then I need really, really good light.

It's worth having, but I wouldn't pay new MKIII prices to have the option...

Actually I was going to respond to Tom about this. What I was trying to say is using something like the BR strap, not with your hand. There is some risk involved and I can't see Canon backing that.

All the bigger lenses should come with this.

I put a bird feeder on my deck railing and got these blue jays. The first one was cropped but the others were just imported into Lightroom and exported as JPGs with no processing. These were shot through my living room window.
