Had been considering getting a new 1.4 TC III but had never tried a TC with my Canon 100-400 II. So when I went to Barnegat Light, NJ, back in February, I got out my TC II to see how it would do with the lens. Turns out I was really pleased with the version II, and don't think I'll need the version III after all.

Here's a few Long-tailed ducks and a Red-breasted Merganser shot with the combo on my 1D4. Hope you enjoy.

Beautifle image Fred. I agree with you that you have a good combination and it's best to look with your own eyes rather than let the marketing people take money away from you.

Thanks for sharing - great images. Just curious to know if you retain AF with the 1.4X ii at least the central point.

thanks for the nice comments Ken, Ron, Eric & Morris. Much appreciated.

Thanks Golfinphotog. Yep, I use central focus point with 4 surrounding assist points and it worked great, even though the ducks bobbed up & down on the ocean waves relentlessly, making even keeping them in the frame a challenge, much less the problem of keeping the focus point on them. I had amazingly few OOF frames and a high % of keepers. I was frankly pleasantly surprised.

No joke! These look really nice. No one here would be able to tell what you used to take these fine shots.
