    Playing around with the new Kenko 1.4x TC on my 400 5.6 this morning. It AF'd fine at f8 on the 6D. These are pretty heavy crops, too.

    Couple Downy WP shots.

    Results are looking good Mark. The cardinal pose, sharpness, etc is great, but it would be a lot better if the bird were perching on something more natural.

    Isn't that part of their natural habitat and food sources these days?

    Agree, the detail resolution looks very very good....I would even say you could do slightly less sharpening in post and be just fine with these images. I think the Cardinal pose is really nice but, to my old eyes, it looks a little over-sharpened.

    PS Have you found a cheap source for peanuts?...'round here they are way too high to consider feeding them to wildlife

    Thanks, Joel. I buy 50lb bags of peanut pickouts (not for human consumption) at a local feed store. I think the 50lb bag runs about $40. It lasts me 6 or 7 weeks, especially during the good weather when there are other food sources. I put out the peanuts and black oil sunflower seeds every day.
