p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · 1DX+100-400+1.4x


I rented a 100-400 for a test weekend at Daytona to see how it did, and even with the 1.4x I was pretty blown away at both the quality of the photos and the AF accuracy. Anything above 225mm or so and it'd jump to f/8, so center focus point only, but the pictures really surprised me. I don't think it missed focus once all weekend. Pretty shocking considering. And most of these are crops from the original.

Clearly the firmware update to allow f/8 AF was effective, and just as obvious is your skill at shooting racing. Good work!

This gives hope that the 5DIII will also do well with the 100-400 & 1.4x at f/8.

VERY VERY nice. Looking at these as I watch today's NASCAR testing. Looking forward to both the Rolex & the Daytona 500, and luckily my dive trip uses up most of the time between them.

Great shots! I'll have to do some recon work to see if the 1D4 also was as effective with a 100-400 and 1.4TC. Just looking for one more excuse to pick up a used 1d4 now that the prices are coming down some...

#5, with the right wheels ever so slightly starting to come off the track, is a great capture.

I notice some subtle vignette is a lot of shots. Did you add that in post-processing to bring out your subject a bit more?

#2 is is my favorite but I love the TSE miniature feel that #8 has.

Unbelievable! Well, almost. I was only barely optimistic about this combo. Thanks for that.

Really great shots, I like them a lot. And thanks for sharing the info on using f/8 autofocus on 1D X.

Got to love that 1Dx. I traded my 1DsIII and cash for the 1Dx, I loved the photos I got before and I love what the 1Dx gives me. I really like all the customization of the controls/settings that can be done!

I was going to make a similar post. The 100-400 + 1.4 TC feels like a new lens on my 1DX. This is a highly effective combo, and your pictures demonstrate that nicely.

Cheers,
