You may be spot on, just noticed the curved body fins that run at wing joint to the canopy, the 15 doesn't have them, the intakes are smaller than the 15's as well and the engine nozzles do look quite close together and smaller than the 15's, good catch, also Stan shoots the Shuttle, should have guessed F-18

Beautiful Shuttle images Stan, captures for a lifetime

The F-15 and 18 have twin engines and tail fins, the 15's fins are straight up, the 18's are V'ed, the F-16 has a single tail fin and engine...jet trivia

Oh it will be a fine combination for sure, just not as good as the 400 DO. When I put the TC on the 200/2, I was impressed with the quality and was getting ready to sell the DO. Then I actually bothered to do the same test with the DO and was shocked. And that from the DO's biggest fan


Maybe I can pick one up for a song when the mark II comes out. If recent supertele rollouts are any indicator, it will be at least a few years

May get a 400 5.6 since I will have F8 AF on my 5DIII soon. Seems like since I only have one big white (200 1.8) the 400 5.6 may be a be a better idea than the TC 2xIII as it would be so much lighter and I already have a TC 1.4III.

Great shots! Those are probably some of the more important and historical photo's any 400 DO has ever been responsible for. If a 7D/400 DO combo is capable a picture like the one of the shuttle taking off at night, then I definately will have no one to blame but myself if I can't get acceptable results.

It is an interesting alternative to the 400 DO (albeit for ~ $1k extra) especially considering its weight and performance. However, getting the reach, which I think I need, with a TC is a reasonable solution for occasional use. For my application I have to start with the optimum length. I have the EF300/4, which is excellent, but a little short.
It is a very difficult riddle. The compromises are weight, size and speed of the lens. Thanks for comments.

Thanks for excellent examples of the BIF and mating position : -)
Looking at #4, I wonder if they're parked there or had the pilot overshot the runway? :- )

I find myself looking at the 400 5.6 again after recently selling off my long lens. There are a lot of good options but I already own the 70-200 II which takes the 1.4 very well. I really only need a top quality 400 that I can glue on a 1.4 for shooting in northern OH this spring. I'd really like canon to put IS on the 400 but honestly I'm not willing to pay over 2k for it...

Just want to give an update since I mentioned the 1.4x III TC + 300 IS II combo; I just got the TC a couple of days ago and ran a field test. I found out that I needed +8 MFA, but after that I am pretty pleased with the sharpness. AF speed is pretty good too on my lowly 50D. Here's a couple of shots taken with this combo:

Ad: howard Thanks for the update.
There is nothing to complain about the 300+1.4TCIII results. The only negative for such an expensive lens is its MFD. Otherwise it is tops.I was briefly interested in 400/5.6, but I consider f4 as the slowest acceptable speed.

I'd like to see more picts, and possibly a link to an actual file I could d/load - if possible, made with the 400 DO, which some people call a "controversial" lens.

The 400mm f4 DO is a much better lens than it's reputation would have you believe. It even works very well with a 1.4x extender, as can be seen in the example below.

I no longer have mine, but after looking at some of the images I shot with it, I may have to look for another one.





Shot with the 5D Mark III, EF 400mm f4 DO IS and EF 1.4X-II Extender, hand-held @ 1/125/sec, f8, ISO 100







100% crop (you can see I should have used a tripod...)

Thanks molson.
These type of shots even on a heavy tripod are not always successful (breeze and other movements), so don't expect too much from a hand held shot and TC.

A 300mm f/2.8 lens that focuses at 2m and you think that's a negative. What were you expecting?

At least what I've on ~$1k lens. Namely MFD of 1.5m and extending lens shade.
What they offer is a shade attachable with a screw, no Arca Swiss compatible tripod clamp, no handle (like Sigma) to facilitate schlepping it. On a $7k lens this is a reasonable expectation.
Canon also woke up in 2013 and discovered that everybody make center pinch lens cups : -(

I just picked up a 400 5.6. It appears, to me anyway, to be much sharper than the 100 400, and my copy is sharp. It really seems to focus much faster, even in lower light than my 100 400 ever thought of. I am anxious to shoot more with it but so far I am liking it.
