I just upgraded my 70-200 2.8L IS to version II. Will I see a performance increase in optics or focus in the version iii extenders if I upgrade my version ii 1.4x and 2x?

Thanks for any help....

Dave

The Extender 1.4x III has the better corner and midframe sharpness. So yes, but ... is it really worth the addon price? If you have extender 1.4x II i'ld say no.

Cheers
