Below are some common subjects in a somewhat unorthodox position and a couple of more normal shots. All shot with Mark II and EF 400/5.6, with and without 1.4x extender.

The squirrel's face and pawsare so unbeliveably sharp and all of them are outstanding. That lens is sure working for you. Cheers

All really good as usual Norm. That chickadee catch is really cool. Is that a
forward roll with one and a half twist, LOL. The tree rat close up is great.
I think DOF is just right.

Thanks Houston, the lens seems to be working great. I'm real pleased with resolution, sharpness, saturation, weight, and general handling. Definitely going into the bag for awhile. I'll never say a "long" while, though, as that sort of thinking just doesn't seem to exist in the world of photography. I remember one fellow who carved his name in his lens because he never dreamt that he would consider selling it. A year later he was taking a slight loss on the lens because of the carved name. Hilarious.

Thanks Woodmeister, I was intriqued by that chickadee's contortions, things that are just not noticed in real time.
