IMG 70-200VR + Kenko 1.4x = cool combo (700k)
Apr 27, 2007

Got myself a Kenko 1.4x extender last week to combine with my 70-200 VR. The 300 Pro DG version, got a black version (expected silver) and it works very well with the 70-200.

AF speed is still excellent, the camera knows it is now dealing with an f/4 lens. Don't know about the metering yet, because I only took 1500+ shots in manual with it, altough from the few (3?) snaps in Aperture priority it seems to work.

Sharpness is good. Little bit less than directly from the lens, but the extra reach makes up for it. When I nail the shot it is actually pretty darn good.

Photos are edited, but I would that anyway. End result is what matters and that's good. Will make prints later. I believe all are at the max (280mm).
