Thanks for that info. Good variety of shutter speeds. Around what I expected, but I wasn't sure if I was right or not.

Those are some very lovely images.

Thanks, eric.

PS - I just received a 300 F4 purchased at an online forum sale for under $600 and am looking forward to trying it out on some birds. I wanted something nice and light for a change. Thought about the 400 5.6 but then this came up and the sharpness charts on the 300 are pretty savory. I'm happy to see that it actually retains AF with the Canon 2x on the Mark II. And, man, does it seem tiny compared to the Sigma and the 200 1.8. I thought for some reason that it would be bigger and weigh more.

That is actually a fairly popular lens for what you're thinking. Its weight and size is manageable, it is optically very good and you can add the TCs without too much loss (from what I've read.) Some hikers like that combination a lot.
