Consider the 2x II teleconverter

Hi, I understand that the new teleconverters slow down the AF when used on our new "big whites" to reduce the focus hunting, and subsequent missed shots that would happen with the old tele's. Your situation may just benefit from the older MkII tele, leaving the AF at full speed for your subject's rapid movements. Might work ok in good light.
