  • Hi Fab, Yes, I did hear all the things about how extenders really affect the IQ as well as AF speed. Therefore, I think it was best for me to get 800L since I always shoot at the long end. I had a ...
  • Hi Dx4me, Yep, I agree with you since 2x will reduce the IQ much further. That was why I have chosen to go with 800L (to avoid using 2x). I was just testing the 800L with 1.4x to see how it ...
  • Hi Fab, I had a chance to take more pictures this morning and I'd like share some of them here in case someone was wondering how 800L performs on 1.4x III extender. When there is enough light, the ...
  • Hi Bird Shooter, The AF with the 800L and 1.4x is much better, when comparing with my old 600L + 2x. Below are the images that I took with each combo. Took with my old 600L + 2x extender. Took with ...
  • Hi Dan, Thank you for your note. Yep, I did receive a new 800L today; so I quickly took a few images of the bird from my backyard. It turned out the AF of the 800L + 1.4x III was very impressive, ...
  • Hi Bird Shooter, Let's not worry about what I said before and I do apologize about that. Anyway, I just received a new EF 800mm f/5.6L today. Therefore, I quickly took a few images of the bird from ...
  • Well, I appreciate your experience; but apparently, you just shared it with the wrong thread. There are a lot threads that need your great experience, so please share your expertises there. Yep, I ...
  • Hi Bird Shooter, I agree with what you said. Since I have always shoot at least 800L or longer, I think getting an 800L is a smart move. With 1DX Mark II, I have no problem with AF at f/8.
  • Hi Bird Shooter, Thank you for your message. I agree that it’s not easy to get answers between these two long lens. Since all lens will reduce IQ with extender, I have decided to go with 800L. Yep, ...
  • Hi Bird Shooter, I did put the 2x on my old 600L but the AF was very terribly slow, so I have decided to go with 800L.
  • Hi Bird Shooter, Thank you for your suggestion, but that’s not what this thread is all about. This thread is about 800L + 1.4x vs 600L + 2x. Will you be able to tell me which one is better? That’s ...
  • Thanks Fab for your message. Yep, I have decided to get an EF 800mm; and now I am like a little kid, who is waiting for his toy to arrive :) I will try to post a few images taking with this lens, ...
  • Hi Ken, Thank you for your questions and concerns, but I think you misunderstood my point. The wetlands area I come is actually open to public with trails, but in order to protect the wildlife, ...
  • Hi Green, Yep, I agree with you on this one. To be honest, I have always been doing that; but most the times, I was in the areas that are closed to public with the fences, at least near my house. I ...
  • Thanks Lehill, I also posted this same question on the other forum and received some responses, thanks again.
  • Thanks Beagle, I will save up a bit more and get that 600II.
  • Thanks Lenshoodie, I just tried the 2x extender on my old 600 and it was terribly slow. Not sure how well it does on the 600II though. With all of your comments, it sounds like the 600II is the ...
  • Thanks Dan, It sounded like not many photographers out there who actually tried the 800+1.4 and give me advice. I’ll see what I can do with all your suggestions so far, thanks again.
  • Hi Kilo, Yep, I actually looked and wanted that 1200mm f/5.6, but the price $180,000 is way too much for me :)
  • Hi Dan, The 1120mm was coming from the calculation of 500II + 1.4x on a 7D2. It was just a quick math to see “how long” it could reach. I know there are other cameras to consider, like 5DsR, but ...
