How dose the 600mm lens work with the 2x teleconverter? I am thinking of renting one for a week or so, is it a good idea? I need the reach for a few shots.

It's not the gear that makes the picture...........It's the photographer.

I would guess that would be a bad idea. With your 1.6x body and a 2x converter with the 600mm you will be at 1920mm FOV. You will need a serious tripod with a Gimbal head and awesome manual focus technique. If you rent this make sure you have it all planned out before putting in all that money.

Don't think it'll autofocus either - doesn't that work out to f/8?

Yeah it would only focus on a 1D body with that setup. For the sake of maintaining AF one might consider going with a 1.4x converter instead.

It should work very well.

I use my 500 with a 2x all the time. If you want, go to www.photosafariindia.c​om/articles.html (external link) and check out the article on TCs. As you'll see, even with a 2X, you get excellent image quality.

Arthur Morris at Birds As Art has occasionally used his 600mm with a 2x, a 12mm extension tube, and either a 1.4x or 2x. Seems to amaze him every time.

Turns out the research was pretty easy:
BAA Bulletin 249 (external link) and search for 'banking to land'.
BAA Bulletin 240 (external link) and search for momma.
