First class images Peter, I am yet to produce such quality pictures

However I am curious about your PP, do you mind to show us the RAW images and your finished images for a comparison and how do you process them

Cheers
Robin

Peter uses jpg straight from the camera IIRC. 1D X jpg's are very good.

Fantastic shots, Peter, all of them. And I am fortunate enough to know, first hand, how hard hand-holding this combo actually is The only difference is I am using a 5DmkIII. The number of cross-points available is also very limited with this f5.6 combo. So personally, I will stick with the bare 600II lens for the foreseeable future, at least for the in-flight shots

BTW: Are you still using just IS Mode 1 here, Peter? And the limiter set at 16m - infinity?

Thanks.

Aren't there 21 x-type f/5.6 points, which is pretty good, even iof they are the central 21.

I think that is right, Whayne -3x7 in the center only, vs 2x5 left edge + 21 center + 2x5 right edge. I find the latter much more convenient to use. YMMV, of course.

Jarvis, Grant, Mike, Robin and Eyvind.....thank you for your kind comments.

Mike, both 600 II and 400 II are 4 kg of mass. However, mass distribution thru the lens volume is different, which results in 600 II being harder to shoot with/control handheld.

Robin, Pixie is right, I do JPG almost exclusively, and my postprocessing effort is generally minimal. However, I do fuss over camera exposure settings, 99% is shot in manual exposure mode, I totally ignore histogram, but I do seem to end up exposing "to the left" most of the time.

Eyvind, other than some minor exceptions when I have used Mode 2, I do keep IS in Mode 1 at all times. However, when doing BIF where there are fast and/or abrupt or irregular lens swings, I turn IS off. That type photography I do not do with lenses longer than 500mm though, ideally 300mm.

When it comes to focus limiter on the 600 (and the 800), I switch it from "full range" to "16m to infinity" and v.v. frequently when shooting. That is an unfortunate neccessity, in order to help AF to cope with a major defocus range of those lenses, and also not to deprive myself of the proximity shots. It is doubly unfortunate that the focus limiter switch is located on the 600 II where it is. A penalty is that on occasion I forget which limiter setting I am currently on, and proximity shots have been missed (i.e., no AF) when I've failed to switch the limiter to "full range".

+100 to everything posted. If Canon doesn't pay you, it should, for demonstrating what its products can do in the right hands.

Do those WP's ever blink?

Than you, Peter, and that is a good question. There is a picture here of a woody blinking. In fact, they do it relatively often, just that I do not keep such pictures.
