I've used the Canon 1.4x II with some success.

I'm looking to get a 1.4 extender for this lens. Is this reconmended or should I pass?

I have used the extender but it is very hard (read pretty much impossible) to hand hold with the extender on and get a clear shot, at least that is my experience.

I am not suggesting to not get the extender, if you use a tripod I think you could get some pretty amazing pictures with it, but if you hand hold most of the time you may be disappointed.

I hear ya. I may just save for the 500mm but then again theres not enough wildlife where I live to justify having one, then the 100-400mm seems reasonable by itself. I rarely use this lens but I can never get rid of it unless I upgraded. :D

The conjunction on 28 Nov 2012 between Jupiter and the full moon. This is a blend from two exposures; one at 1/250 for Jupiter and the moon (but processed differently for each), and one at 1/4 for Jupiter's moons. Both at 400mm, f/8, ISO200 on a 7D.

Went to Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden today with my son on a rare non-rainy day here in Portland and managed to test out my new 100-400 L. It was still a pretty dreary day and I had to shoot at high ISO all day.

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.

Hello all. I am new to this forum and just recently purchased my own "dust pump". I have been very pleased with it overall, it performs quite well with my 7D. Here are two photos I have taken with it in the month that I have owned it. The image info is as follows. The NASCAR image 1/1000th @ f5.6 400mm, ISO 800. The Bear 1/500th @ f5.0, 250mm ISO 320. The images haven't been pp'd just converted to jpeg to adjust size for upload.

yeah our boat driver also misidentified a bird or two while we were there. There are so many to remember, I'm sure they have a hard time with it. When I got home after our trip, I verified every ID just in case. I like the coucals. They have a very cool red eye coloration. You captured it nicely.

Thank you! It was busy drying its wings while munching away at all the insects (dudus) flying. I'm thinking of getting a book to help identify birds...any suggestion for East African birds?
