Awesome photos- I really like the Toucan photo. The colors on the bird pop nicely against the background

Thanks! This lens is a joy to use.

Don't forget the 2x TC ser III to go with it, for example:

I still find i use my 300 f2.8 IS L MKII more than my 500 f4 MKII as its just such a vesatile lens and works so well with both TC's.

I'm pleased to contribute to this thread :-) My preference is the 2x TC on the 300mm lens. Light enough to carry round for hours at a time if need be. Not much in the way of good light today but, since I can't get out as often as I'd like, I'll take what I can get:

Due to the poor available light, the ISO on the shot below was 10,000. No NR applied either!

Well done Mark, nice to see the thread in action once again.

Thank you Red Dexs.

I wish I had something more epic than cat images though.
(It does seem silly to level this sort of equipment on a stray cat as well, but then, I did photograph a Pretzel Dog with this lens once)

I feel that there are SO MANY mind-blowing images by others in this thread (like the toucan image for a recent instance).
I wish I had something better to offer.

The lens is awesome. It is definitely one of my favorite (physical) things.

An old one I found:

An old one of an old family dog who is now deceased. I am happy that I could provide the owners with this image:

This dog also passed away on Christmas day 2017 and his owners are heartbroken.
I am also happy that I could provide this image of their beloved dog, to my friends:

I looked before posting these. My apologies if I accidentally re-posted anything.
