Yes, the MC7. I find it even a bit better than my new Sigma 2x TC HSM compatible TC.
Others will say the contrary, but they are very close for my findings.

Rob, there were a couple comments on the B&H site indicating that manual focus was required at the longer focal lengths. Is that your experience as well?

I'm using the newer Sigma 70-200/f2.8 OS.

The price is sufficiently lower to be enticing. USD$169 for the Kenko versus USD$299 for the Sigma.

Thank you,
