I often use the 1.4x III with the 100-400 II. Mostly with a 1DX2, but sometimes with a 5D4. Works great! I'm shooting go-kart races tomorrow and will be using the 1.4x III for that.

Here's an example at 560mm:

Most of my birdpics are with 5DIV, 100-400II and 1.4EXIII, coming from sigma 150-600Sport I've got no regrets whatsoever.

Many of my Ecuador bird shots were with the 100-400II/1.4XIII, but on a 7D2. Many were seriously cropped too. I thought they looked pretty good. :-)

Thank you for the info guys - Think I'll pick up a used one and give it a whirl before I part with the 150-600!

Very impressive sharpness with the 1.4x III.

I too like the 100-400 II with the 1.4x III. I get nice images with this combination. My problem is that on any day of bird shooting, I'm going from static shots to BIF shots. I don't really care for shooting BIF shot with the 1.4x on my lens. Like Archi, I use a 7DII most of the time. It's just too much horsepower for me. I loose too many birds while trying to find them in the air. So I have to make the decision of whether to use my 100-400 with or without the TC. I frequently make the wrong decision. :-(

Hi, Mike. I also found that using the 1.4x III on a 7D2 was a somewhat skittish combination. It worked pretty well for airshows, but not so well for BIF. On full-frame, for both airplanes and BIF, I'm almost always using the 1.4x III. I did shoot the go-kart races on Saturday using the 1.4x III. Now I have to go through 3000 shots to find the 20 - 30 keepers. <sigh>


Image editing ok; C&C always welcome.

You really captured the brilliant colors of these two parrots very nicely. Excellent close-ups.
