  • Excerpt: Images sharp Like the added reach for birding. Great for ducks and shorebirds that are not moving quickly. Need to upgrade your Canon Firmware on camera in order to use automatic focus with extender at f8 and slower. Haven't tried this yet.
  • Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Extends While Walking

Great accessory

  • Excerpt: It really works well with my Canon 100-400 mm l lens. The carrying pouch makes it easier to keep it clean. For the investment, it makes up for the price of a very expensive lens longer than the 400 mm end of the lens.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight

Good but expensive

  • Excerpt: I use this 1.4 X TC III to gain extra reach with my Canon 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS II lens. It turns the lens into a 140-560 mm f/6.3 (approx) - f/8 lens. I lose a little sharpness and contrast with the TC but it's still pretty decent. The autofocus also slows a little but not much. It also adds a bit of weight. It probably is the best TC available for this lens. and also the most expensive!
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Esp Good With V Ii Teles, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Expensive, Heavy, No Good With Ef-s Lenses

Better than version II

  • Excerpt: I purchased the Extender EF 1.4X III to replaced version II. The sharpness is overall improved with excellent contrast and color. The only draw back is the steep price. I own two of these now so I don't have to keep swapping between the 70-200mm IS f/2.8L II and the 300mm f/2.8L II when I'm on assignment. I would have giving this product 5 stars if it is $ cheaper.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Price

It does a great job for moving targets that don't change speed quickly ...

  • Summary: Gives me the reach that I was expecting from my 70-200 but I have to consider what I am filming as you loose a few stops of aperture and the focus is "sluggish". It does a great job for moving targets that don't change speed quickly and have a predictable trajectory. I've used this to film lacrosse games and it's a lot of work getting the shot because of the slower auto focus.

autofocus dosn't work with 6D or lower

  • Excerpt: Excellent for extending the focal length, but its autofocus doesn't work with the cheaper Canon models (6D and lower). There might be some other limitations.
