From Canon USA:
 
The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Honors Canon’s Work on Improvements to Large Format CMOS Imagers for Use in High Definition Broadcast Video Cameras
 
LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., October 22, 2012 - Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, announced today that Canon Inc. will be recognized at the 64th Annual Technology & Engineering Emmy® Awards for “Improvements to Large Format CMOS Imagers for Use in High Definition Broadcast Video Cameras.” Presented by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS), the Technology & Engineering Emmy® Awards honor development and innovation in broadcast technology and recognize companies, organizations and individuals for breakthroughs in technology that have a significant effect on television engineering.
 
Canon debuted its award-winning large format CMOS image sensor in its acclaimed EOS C300 Digital Cinema Camera in November of 2011 at a global launch event held at Paramount Studios in Hollywood. By exploring alternatives to the established Bayer color filter array algorithms, Canon was able to achieve an overall image quality capture through its CMOS sensor that has helped bring digital cinema closer to the superb aesthetics associated with 35 mm motion picture film.
 
“We are honored to receive this recognition from NATAS for our work on large format sensors,” said Masaya Maeda, managing director and chief executive, Image Communication Products Operations, Canon Inc. “We see this award as a testament to the warm acceptance that the film and television production community has extended to us as we’ve partnered with them over the last year to help tell their stories. It also serves as further incentive for our continued commitment to the entertainment industry.”
 
In November 2011, Canon announced its full-fledged entry into the theatrical motion picture, television programming and television commercial production industries with the launch of the Cinema EOS System. Over the past 10 months, the Company has introduced a total of three high-definition, high-performance Cinema EOS digital cinema cameras—the EOS C300 Digital Cinema Camera, the EOS C500 4K Digital Cinema Camera and the compact, lightweight EOS C100 Digital Video Camera—all built around Canon’s innovative Super 35-mm CMOS image sensor technology specifically developed for Cinema EOS motion image capture. Separately, the EOS-1D C 4K DSLR Cinema Camera, equipped with an 18.3-megapixel full frame (36 mm x 24 mm) CMOS image sensor, also joined the Cinema EOS product family in April of this year. For professional photographers, and independent and student filmmakers, Canon has also introduced the EOS 5D Mark III digital SLR camera, building on the strong success of the EOS 5D Mark II in film and television production.
 
The Technology & Engineering Emmy® Award will be presented on January 10, 2013, during the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.

The Canon Digital Learning Center has published an article on the just-released Canon EOS 1D X firmware version 1.1.1.
 
As I expected would be Canon's position on the question, the Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM Lens is officially not compatible with the Canon EF 1.4x III Extender.
 
As discussed here, the 70-300 L was initially included in the 1D X's f/8 AF-capable lens and extender combination list on the new Canon 1D X special firmware page. This lens is no longer included on that page - and is not included on the CDLC firmware in-depth page's compatibility list.

Sample pictures have been added to these reviews:
 
Canon EF 500mm f/4.0 L IS II USM Lens Review
Canon EF 600mm f/4.0 L IS II USM Lens Review
Canon EOS 1D X Review (with some overlapping samples)
 
These are awesome lenses. I expect to post many more sample pictures from these lenses in the future - especially/hopefully after a White-Tailed Deer photo trip I have scheduled in Shenandoah National Park in the near future.
 
The 1D X is also awesome. I'm deep into my fall sports photography season and can easily say that I've never had a camera and lens combination perform as well as the 1D X and the "IS II" supertelephoto lenses. These combinations rock.
 
Note that I continue to include photography tips in most of the sample picture comments.
