I find the 600II + 1.4XIII is sharp at f5.6 or f8, but I tend to try to use the latter in the hope that a little more of the subject will be in focus - even though I know the DOF is pretty shallow with either especially when the subject is close.
    Thanks....you are correct.....trying to maximize sharpness and dof with f/8....although that is only stopped down one stop from wide open when using the 1.4TC

    +1...I don't often post responses as it would take up too much bandwidth, but this thread continues to impress. Great shot Joel, keep 'em coming.

    Burrowed a 1dIII from my father. Pretty nice camera. Everything is much faster than on my 40d. I think I need to work on a homogenous background. I would like my background to be silky smooth like Joel's.

    Well done....good detail in the reds, not easy to do. I really liked my 1DMKIII. It was my first 1 series body after starting with a 40D.

    I did some work on your BG, hope you don't mind. By selecting it with the magic wand tool I then ran Gaussian Blur and noise reduction after using the refine edge. This smoothed it out to some degree.
