Well, I’ve now done something similar with the 70-200mm lens, with the 2x extender attached. Here’s the picture:

It wasn’t very bright, so there was a fair amount of noise from the high ISO setting, but Lightroom seems to have done a reasonable job of that. Here’s a cropped version of the same image:

While it’s obviously not as close a view as with the other lens, I think it gains something in clarity. A repeat performance with a tripod will follow. And if I can manage to get the angle right, I might get a shot of something unexpected.
