100400 II+TC 2.0x III
3

here is a shot using canon 100-400 II + TC 2.0x III. this shows how versatile this lens is and how nicely it handles the 2.0x TX. of course, you do lose AF capability due to f 11 that makes the lens manual focus, only! thankfully i have steady hand and have practiced handholding the camera/lens quite a bit in the past.

when i saw the bird sit on the branch, i quickly went and got my camera/lens and started shooting, but due to excitement, for a split second i forgot that i need to manually focus the lens, so that is what i did and i was very happy. i think this lens will be with me for a long time to come.

your comments and positive critiques are appreciated!

If you switch to the R6, I do believe you get full and complete AF capabilities! I'm impressed at your manual focusing skills though.

that is funny, isn't it, but like i said, when the birds (they were a pair) landed on the branch, i ran inside and grabbed my camera and paid more attention to focus than anything else--good thing doves are not too skittish birds as small birds and gave me a little more time to get thing together. but you are right, f11 would have helped better exposure and higher shutter speed, also!

thanks, i know TC 2.0x III is shunned by most but as you can see, it works quite well with 100-400 II.

thanks, i am not familiar with canon R cameras, yet, and probably won't abandon dslrs for a while since they do serve me quite well for now. but i am sure when the time comes, i'll upgrade to next gen. R cameras

indeed, i didn't have time to check everything and like i said, this bird was nice enough to give me a few more second to do manual focus. luckily, my 1Dx is super fast enough to get a few shots in a hurry! however, the bird did get spooked and flew off right after this shot
