1DX AF @ F8 possible!

Via CanonRumors

"From Arthur Morris

Arthur has written a great article about getting f/8 autofocus with the new Canon EOS-1D X. A lot of birders used the EF 800 f/5.6L IS with the Canon 1.4x TC & EOS-1D Mark IV for example. The biggest complaint with the EOS-1D X has been the inability to get f/8 autofocus.

However, with the Kenko Teleplus PRO 300 DGX 1.4 teleconverter you can give the EOS-1D X the ability to autofocus at f/8 with the EF 800 f/5.6L IS. Another plus of using the Kenko teleconverter is you’re able to move the AF point at f/8. With the Canon teleconverter on say, the 1D Mark IV, you only had the center AF point active.

Arthur has posted lots of images to show the image quality that is possible with the Kenko 1.4x TC."
