AF - depends on TC - A Canon one , you would need to tape pins [ do a search for taped pins ]
Need a lot of light . Probably better off just cropping - but that depends on what / why you are...
My 50 1.8 AF is better than my 50 1.4 . [ but the 1.8 is also a mk 1 . ]
On my XTI . On 7D , I use live view with the 1.4 .
Unless you are really picky or want the bokeh say with the 1.8 .

They say yes , but I REALLY DON'T KNOW .

1st , my 50 1.4 needs live view - AF very iffy , but on the XTI and the 7D .
Depending on what and why you shoot , the 17-40 and the 28-135 . The 28-135 is a good lens - My standards are crap , OK...

canon 2X III won't fit on 70-300 unless you use extension tube .
I don't think the kenko will either .
The price you are seeing is for the III versions . The price is not cheaper by much for the...
Really like next to last shot .
I went with the 180 macro - more working distance .
IS is almost useless above / faster than 1/500 . On a tripod it is usless unless a really cheap ./ wobbly one...
Thanks , I too sort by filter .
bag 1 = 10-22 , 17-55 , 70-200 - all 77
Bag 2 28-135 , 35-350 = 72 mm
Bag 3 primes - 52 , 55 , 58 mm = smaller size and filter stackers for each size .
I got mine when it 1st came out .
Great lens .
I don't think you will gain that much upgrading unless you use the 2 X III .

All my primes are in one bag . In the last couple of years , the only one I used was the 180 and now I just use the 70-200 and crop a little .
My main lenses are the 10-22 , 17-55 [ 2.8 + IS ] and...

To me , the 75-300 is OK [ not good , just OK ] for 4 X 6 prints . With some PP up to 5 X 7 . These would be give away's / printed at costco .
Under good light at 1/750 or above , OK . About the...
1st , it is a hobby .
I am waiting on the 150-600 .
A zoom is better for me . A lot easier to frame . If you have a zoom now , pick a mm set lens there and then see if you change it .
I have 3...
Thanks , I book marked your results .
Yesterday , I saw and bought WD-40 silicone spray . I have not used and won't on my lenses .
silicone is a lubricant while WD-40 is more of a solvent . Both cling to surfaces - which means they...
Thanks , the Tamron 150-600 is on order .
From what I have read , the Tamron 150-600 should work .
