Thanks everyone. Like I said, I was very pleasantly surprised with the results. I had a few photog's in the media center between sessions asking what I was using and they had a perplexed look on their faces when I told them.

Canon 1.4x II.

The 100-400 I got from lensprotogo.com and it was an A date code, so brand new.

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!



That has been really nice. I've gotten used to how the different AF modes act, and there are other things like easily changeable minimum shutter speeds and the fact that it shoots in JPG so well.

By the way, I shot in JPG all weekend. The photos came out great.

I always thought the 100-400 didn't play well with the 1.4x and so never used that combination until I saw a post a few months ago singing the praises. I have a fabulous copy of the 100-400 (tweaked by Canon to my 1D3) and I was thrilled with the results adding the 1.4x (II). 1DX's high iso quality can only add to the usefulness of this combo ...

Very impressive, 1.4x II or III , I need to try my 400 5.6 w/ 1.4II on my 1D IV to see what it can do.

It will do very well. I use the 1D IV and 100-400L + 1.4x TC extensively and have little to complain about other than it's f/8.

Great pics. Just shows what this lens can do. I picked up a copy about 18 months ago and no regrets. Its an excellent lens and just amazingly flexible.

I've had a few 100-400's and only one really wow'ed me. But this brand new copy that I rented was probably the best I've ever used.

I will say one thing about the autofocus at f/8 with it. It acts like a 300 2.8 IS with a 2x on it if you start out being way out of focus. It hunts somewhat slowly, but then if it's anywhere near focus, it locks on and will stay locked on. Basically, if I put the lens down at my side, I tried not to bump the focus ring too much so that when I brought the camera back up to my eye, the focus was at least close so it didn't have to hunt.

And I won't be using it at the race because it's a 24 hour race where I'll be shooting a lot at night, so I have CPS loaning me a 300 II that I am looking forward to trying out. I was going to ask for the 400 2.8 but it's just too heavy to walk around with all weekend (I used one two years ago at this race).

Great photos, Will! Thanks for demonstrating that the 100-400L + 1.4II makes high quality telephoto shooting very accessible at reasonable price.

Yep great images but cut that out those cameras are all completely inferior according to DXO!
Didnt you know its only DR which matters these days!
Im not surprised by your results the 1Dx is the best AF camera ever released end of story.
You must ave a nice 100-400 as well..nice!
