p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Everday bird at AF f/8 with 5d3


Thought about posting this in the canon gear forum, but decided to stay closer to home; I suspect there are several others like me who have been waiting for the new firmware. 500 ii + 2x III. AF seems a touch slower than without the TC, and (obviously) doesn't work well in low light, but was OK here (even though this image is at ISO 3200 ss 1/320).

Both of these are very nice with great sharpness and detail Greg. I must have missed the info about the new firmware - could you explain or post a link. I checked the Canon site, and didn't see it ~ Ron

Edit to add - this must be the 5D MIII firmware...never mind.

These look great, Greg! I believe I'm going to wait for the official release of the firmware by Canon. I don't own a TC2x anyway, but I'm thinking about getting one now
Thanks for sharing.

Greg- in my simple life all I can say about these is Wow! Both are gorgeous.
The first gets my nod because I really like red colors .

Thanks, Ken. Light was pretty low, and this is one of the few that didn't suffer from motion blur.

Thanks, Tim. Just a common cardinal, but I liked the pose.

Thanks, Socrate; I had decided (after much hemming and hawing) to get the 500 rather than the 600 precisely because of the potential to use a 2x TC and AF on the 5d3. I still can't figure out how to get close to Northern Alabama waterfowl, but this gives me added incentive!

Thank you, Charlie; common birds around here, but still wonderfully colored, so much so that I even thought about (but did not) moving the saturation slider to the left!

You're welcome, Jim. I'm very happy with the 2x, which I use all the time with a 300/2.8.
