I hate to be that guy, but did you read any of this thread before asking?

Anyway, the answer is the image quality is very noticeably improved! :)

IMHO, the image quality is rivaling or better than even the 400mm prime!

Careful of your comments CDS or Canon will be recalling the new 100-400 L IS Mk II tweak it's specification down a bit.

A mind-blowing lens. It even matches up well with the 1.4 Mk III extender.

Plays VERY well with the 1.4x III (IMHO)

Good pictures of birds are not boring, they are art.
But in this thread and on internet in general, good pictures of birds are not frequent...
Environnemental portrait of birds in a good light could be awesome, but close up of birds in bad light and with bad post-treatment (99% of what we can see as birds pictures on internet) are boring, I agree !

Harsh, but true. I'll admit that most of mine are opportunistic snaps - but I still enjoy the ones that come out half decently, even if no one else does.

Picture editing is OK. CC always welcome.

99% of most shots are boring. They may have some value to the shooter, but for the general public, not so much. They may be executed well technically, but it is a rare photo that truly shows vision, whether for birds or landscape or anything else. The grim reality is that most of us are hacks. With fancy equipment.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.
