The 7D focuses OK with the Kenko 2.0x TC, it even manages it with stacked 1.4x and 2.0x although IQ is in the toilet!

Second hand I can get a Canon mkIII 2.0x TC for 300, a 100-400L is around 725... I'm convinced that as soon as I buy a 100-400 they'll announce the replacement I might have a look at the Sigma 50-500 as well, the 150-500 I had was OK for the money. I was hoping that the 7D/70-200/2.0x might be good enough for my invited needs, but I wasn't too happy with the results. Although I

I kept buying the newest iteration of Canon's 2X because they kept telling me I'd love "the new one", that has not been the case. Canon's 2X III is just about worthless on the existing 100-400. They make reasonable, but expensive paper weights. Sigma has always been "ok for the money".

Rumor has it that the new 100-400 will be released this year, but I wouldn't put much stock in that, given their inability to bring the 200-400 to market.

Yeah I wouldn't be using a 2.0x on a 100-400, it's more using the 2.0x on a 70-200 mkII instead of buying a 100-400. My main use for a longer lens would be airshows and motorsports, as I'm able to stop down (slow shutter speeds as I prefer shooting props) I was hoping it would suffice... I'll get a proper long lens eventually but it's not likely to be this year.

Yes - or any other politician.

Looking at that Mustang, I find myself a bit confused: It looks like either the flaps are down, or both ailerons are up; and it looks like the left aileron is longer than the right one. Are my eyes playing some kind of tricks on me?

Flaps are down possibly to slow down for the camera ship and port side aileron is deflected a little bit translating in the right bank of the Mustang if I'm correct.

I went up in the Remos at noon today to give the Kenyon 4x4 a workout. I wanted some turbulence (and got it) and put the 0.6 ND filter on, too, to slow the shutter at reasonable apertures. So here's a sample of what it can do for you. At 1/400 second, which is two stops slower than I normally try to shoot aerials with the 70-200, my hit rate is about 60% for keepers and 40% for tack-sharp keepers. Here's a highway interchange at full-frame and again at a 1:1 crop.

The Kenyon and the D800+70-200 is a handful in the cockpit, and it's hard to look through the viewfinder when the subject is approaching 90 degrees to the longitudinal axis. Some adaptation to my normal techniques is required, but for a first effort, I'm quite pleased.

Thanks Brian! I'm putting a plan in place to take this rig downtown. I envision a series of images of the Dallas skyline at about the same illumination, using a 407 as the platform. I'm going to be in Houston next week, might try putting the same thing together down there. I love it when a new tool gets you thinking about new possibilities! Now what I need is a body that has less noise at higher iso settings, lots less noise.


Compared to what? Have you ever considered borrowing a D4 from Bill Fortney to compare versus your 1Dx?

Folks, it looks like I'm going to miss the Gathering this year. I could cry...

My consulting practice is having a blockbuster year (already beat last year's total revenue), and the annual conference for family-business consulting is in San Diego, October 16-18. Even with the gala dinner on Friday, it's possible I can get to Dallas in time to meet y'all for the airshow... but no way no how can I go to both the Gathering on Thursday and my conference at the same time.

Dang it.

Perhaps a local commercial pilot in the right seat acting as a safety pilot could help....phone lines are open.

Naa, I don't really care, and I wouldn't invest in a D4 regardless at this point...D4X...now that might be a different story. The 1Dx does what it does nicely, no reason to look further until someone releases the next game changer.
