I am thinking about buying one of the Canon extenders for use on my 6D/EF 70-300 f/4-5.6L combination. I have read a number of reviews that suggest the 1.4x III is sharper than the 2.0x III, but before I take the plunge, I would be grateful for the observations of the forum please. I want to extend the range of my telephoto for some wildlife shots I want to take, and see the extenders as being a more affordable option to the purchase of a new lens Thanks Geoff

Hi. I just bought (almost) new Canon EF 100-400mm lens for bird photography for my 70D camera. As I already own an old Voigtlander Ultron 100-400mm I know that such reach (even with the camera's 1.6 crop factor) is sometimes not enough and I am not that much into photo-cropping in PP. I was reading many threads for last days - unfortunately all of them very outdated - about Canon's 100-400 L + TC setup (mostly with 5DmkIII or 1Ds) and read a lot about the problems with autofocus etc. My...

I have a Canon EOS 6D FF camera and I am going to buy Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM in the near future.

So I think of Canon Extender 1.4x and 2.0x (version 3) or a Canon EOS 70D which will give the 1.6x factor. With teleconverters I'll get 280mm and 400mm but with cost of the IQ, focus speed and aperture, with the crop camera I will get 320mm but of the cost of the...

I am presently in the market for my first L lens. I am looking to get a telephoto lens that can get me to 400mm, and potentially beyond, for wildlife photography, mostly birds. I was convinced that the lens I was looking for was the 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 because of the l-series build and image quality, and because of the IS. I have also heard good things about the focal range that the lens possesses "saving the day" for some, but I also have my concerns about the lens. I like to manually focus...

I am going on a month self-drive safari in Namibia and Botswana (with some guided trips). I have the following gear: 5D MIII Tamron 24-70 2.8 VC Canon 70-200 2.8 IS II Canon EF1.4x III Reading on the fora it seems that you need as much reach as you can get on safari and that 400-400+ is prefered. I was thinking of investing some more for my trip in a canon 17-40 L for some nice landscape shots and something for more reach. I am contemplating the following options. a Canon EF 2x III...
