We went from having a 7D & 50D to getting the missus a 6D to replace her 50D.

To make up for the loss of reach going FF we bought the new Kenko Pro 300 DGX (not the earlierDG), and found this sucker will AF on the 100-400mm lens at 400mm, AND correctly report both F8 as well as 560mm focal length.

Then I tried it on the 7D, and guess what! My 7D will AF at F8 fully zoomed out. We are over the moon about it.

We had tried the earlier TC from Kenko, as well as a Sigma 1.4, and none of the others would do it. Dunno how Kenko has done the magic with it, but I no complain. It even AF'd inside the house on a rack of spoons, so pretty poor lighting.

Throw this beasty on your 6D to overcome your loss of reach and you'll never look back!
