Kenko Teleplus PRO 300 DGX 1.4x AF Teleconverter - possible solution to zoom needs?
5 months ago

I am hoping someone here has some experience with teleconverter and a Canon 70-300mm IS USM lens. I am using a Canon 7D and I primarily photograph birds and other wildlife. I ran across a couple of threads from 2006 where folks had some luck with using AF and this TC. I was hoping there are some folks with more recent info on compatibility and IQ from this combo.

My other option is to suck it up and eat ramen for the next three months finish saving for the Canon 100-400mm.  *le sigh*
