  • Summary: I already have the 2x extender and bought this one on impulse after hearing good things about it. I thought I would keep this and sell the 2x extender but now I am not so sure. Most people are under the impression that the 1.4x extender is far superior to the 2x. Technically that's probably true but only because it's logical. The greater the magnification, the greater the quality loss so the obviously the 1.4x should give better results.
  • Pros: Build quality, Optical quality, Water and dust resistance, Excellent resale value, Stackable with 2x extender, The best extender money can buy but not a substitute for a longer lens.
  • Cons: Even though it is top quality I still feel the price is just a tad steep

  • Summary: Purchased with to go with 70-200 f2.8 (on my 10D) to shoot wildlife. Gives me excellent 'reach' in a relatively light, compact package and minimal loss of quality from an excellent lens.
  • Pros: very minimal loss of image quality, light & compact
  • Cons: not inexpensive

  • Summary: Optical quality is up to par with its previous counterpart. AF speed is undiminished-much better than the previous version.
  • Pros: AF speed of attached L lenses is essentially unaffected. Razor sharp photos.
  • Cons: none

Canon 1.4 mark II Extender

RGJ, Amazon
20 January 2015
  • Summary: This is an excellent addition to supplement Canon's compatible L lenses. It enables those of us who don't own the high-end Canon super lenses to achieve good quality extra reach. Some of the more recent Canon cameras feature quality, low noise, high ISO performance and this means that the loss of an f-stop when using the extender does not matter. The extender performs very well in conjunction with the reasonably priced Canon 400mm f5.6 L lens.

Perfect

  • Summary: Expensive , but well worth the money compared with the cheaper alternatives it does an amazing job, slight loss of quality but need to be very critical to complain, focusing speed is brilliant no hunting and fixes first time , used with 70-200mm f4 and works wonderfully, with a prime lens it would be perfect .

Good Service

Photo19, Amazon

  • Summary: Item arrived very promptly, box rather battered but this may be because it was placed directly into a transit bag without additional protection. Item as described but no warranty card. However, would recommend because Amazon customer service is generally very good.
