I have the 7Dii & 600iii right now...with 1DXii stocks getting cleared out I was thinking of grabbing one, and a 1.4x to pair with the 600. Do you think the results would be superior to the 7Dii in terms of high-ISO noise and image quality? Also, would the 1Dx ii & 1.4x deliver that same crisp look you get with full-frame or does the extender ruin it?

edit: I know I'd be giving up a bit of reach if I switched to the 1DXii combo

1Dx2+600 is the way to go

and learn birds’ behavior to get close
