I've seen many sample images with the newest TC 1.4x III, but haven't seen many or any that I recall, with the version II on the 100-400 II. Specifically anyone having sample images using those on a 7d2 would be very helpful.
I have the 100 - 400 II on the way and could swing the additional price of the 1.4x II but probably not the III.

Nice series of shots! What was the light source in the first shot?

it was brilliant sunshine so i underexposed to keep from totally blowing out the white feathers. I have a lot to learn about exposure control...and the lens and camera are new, so it's a learning curve that's reasonably steep for me. I had the wrong meter setting etc--practice practice

Interesting - Thanks for the explanation. With the background so dark I was thinking maybe you'd shot in the dark with flash. :-)

Flash is a total mystery to me. I shoot with a better beamer and a 430EXII, but have mixed results.Haven't plugged it into my new camera and lens yet, tho. On some of the egrets I was mistakenly in partial metering, and shot-2/3ev, and shutter speeds of 1-2000 and fstops of 9 and 6.3. Auto iso had me anywhere from 100-400. How I could expose for the whole scene and not irretrievably blow out the whites totally eludes me-HDR perhaps? but I doubt the egret would be still enough for long enough even in high speed shooting...

High-contrast shots definitely make it difficult to hit the ideal exposure. Spot metering on the brightest part where you want to retain details and adjusting the exposure based on that is probably the safest approach.

I photograph birds, primarily, often ones that are barely larger than the focus square in center point,using spot metering and especially with larger birds tend to get the right exposure more often than not--or something close enough that my poor post processing skills can salvage. when I started shooting these birds I was in spot and shooting +2/3 ev as I usually do, and when i saw what i was getting, i outsmarted myself by underexposing and mistakenly going to another metering option. The sun couldnt have been any brighter and the bird couldnt have been any whiter, so next time I may do better..

and of course, partial metering is optimized for backlit subjects--exactly the opposite of what I was dealing with. I simply thought I was picking "evaluative" and just didnt spend enough time looking at what i was shooting-or checking the icon I was selecting...
