Excerpt: I like to use with my 70-200mm during the day and it gives an awesome extra rage! It makes you loose some EVs but during daylight it makes no diference. In addition, you can reach F64, what helps you to get longer exposition photos or videos.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Pairing the 2x TC III with the 300 2.8 IS ver 1 is a great way to get the benefits of a 600 mm 5.6 super tele without the weight. They work great, sharp, fast, most AF points. Appears more constantly sharp than the ser II 100 to 400, but very similar performance.
Excerpt: I purchased this to add length to my 100-400 f4-5.6L. So far the results have been mixed. I've not gotten the quality of results I seek as the images I'm getting have been less than tack sharp.
Excerpt: I have been pleasantly surprised with this extender. I owned the previous version, and it was not very sharp. I paired this extender with my Canon EF 300mm 2.8, and it's magic with a Canon 5DSR, sharp and great depth of field. Auto focus is quick, and I can hand hold it. Highly recommend.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh
Excerpt: Purchased this to compliment my 70-200mm 2.8 rather than buy a stand alone longer lense. I was expecting a compromise in sharpness and quality, but that has not been my experience. I very much enjoy the extender and feel it is well worth the investment.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Summary: Outstanding images with this in conjunction with my 300mmF2.8L. Frustrating that it does not work with the 100-400 F4.5L ll USM, while it did work with the original version of this lens, (although this was not consistent). I also own the 1.4x extender.
Excerpt: Have used third party extenders and they were good but this one is awesome! I'm using it on a 70-200 f4 IS USM attached to a 7D Mark II and it works flawlessly. Auto focus is quick and I can hand hold it with no problem and I am an elderly gentleman. Highly recommend.
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction
