Re: 1.4x or 2x?

I took a series of images with different TC's and combinations using my 1D MK III. I found that the 1.4X definitely improved the image when compared to cropping, but the 2X did not. The 1.4X + 2X TC turned out better than I expected.

My test was far from perfect, I used a stable and heavy tripod with weights on the under hook, and a heavy duty head, but there may still be some motion.

I cropped the images so that they all show approvimately the same view of the tower, which is on Mt Spokane about 7 miles away.

Here is a link to the topic showing them.
