On the subject of gimbals. I have a Jobu that I think is absolutely brilliant. There's no need for a separate ballhead as you screw the thing directly onto the tripod. I have removed the swing arm and use it as a sidekick as my gear is too light for the full gimbal. The sidekick works like a charm and I love it to bits. I have the Jr2 kit, which they don't have anymore. Here's their site: http://www.jobu-design.com/ (external link)

B&H and Adorama sell them too:

Yes, as Levina points out, the Jobu's are great pieces of gear. A friend has one of their models (can't remember which). High quality.

Jobu is the one that I actually thought about buying in the past.

Perhaps some enterprising retailer could put together a big complete package......and include the lens for "free"?

I have the acrarech gp-s ballheqd that has a built in gimbal feature. Is a perfect fit for this lens. Their lever clamp is amazing. I was super pleased that I did not have to purchase something new to use this lens.

Don't make the mistake of putting a 600mm lens on a flimsy, 100 dollar support system!

Indeed that would be bad karma. An accident waiting to happen. :cry:

Yes, but not only that. You want a support system that keeps vibrations to a minimum!

If I already have Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 L USM, the Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 L USM + 2x extender III will be better choice for wildlife and birding? A 2x extender III costs just 500 USD while a Tamron 150-600mm may cost over 1000 USD (probably 1200USD in my country)

These decisions are always difficult. Maybe you could go to the shop and look at the Tamron 150-600mm. Try it out a bit, see how it feels?
And I wouldn't buy the 2x extender III. A 2x II will be sufficient. The mark III really only makes a difference for the new super telelenses. For your 70-200mm the 2x II will be excellent. You can buy them used for half the price of a new mark III.

I myself have the Kenko 1.4 MC4 DGX extender. :) The cheapest of all the Kenkos I think. I bought it because it came out as best overall in a test by the authoritative German Traumflieger site and I have to say that it is excellent. Here is a link to the test: http://www.traumfliege​r.de …r/overview.php#​kenko14dgx (external link)
The test was done by the way with a 5DII and a 70-200mm f/4L IS.
