Re: Just get a 70-200 f2.8 VRII and 2x TCIII
In reply to Lance B, Jun 16, 2012

Good enough for me if it's too tough to call

Will probably go for the 1.7 as best compromise as I can get one 2nd hand and can't find any TCIIIs 2nd hand, it's therefore half cost of the 2x and every penny counts at the moment

Thanks, appreciate the answer, and again sir, you're a master of the art!

Have just noticed a thread on a 300mm f2.8 + 1.7 combo which would suggest it's good but as you have all 3 TCs would appreciate your thoughts still

It's a tough call as there is really very little in it but if push came to shove, I would most likely opt for the 2x TCIII but that is probably only because it gives the extra range, as I think the IQ is basically on par. When I go on holidays and take the 70-200, I normally opt for the 1.4x TCII and 2x TCIII pairing, not the 1.7x TCII, but this is more to do with range than as I really think the IQ difference is too tough to make a call on.
