1DX and Kenko 1.4X PRO 300 Extender

Just a very quick and dirty edit to show the Kenko does work at f/8.0 and further with the 1DX.

Only editing was one run of Smart Sharpen at 0.6 Radius and Ammount set to 100 with a slight noise reduction pass in ARC.

One draw back, if you can call it that, is the extender will overexpose by one full stop.

I found the extender also needs to be worked, in other words shutter speeds and histogram need to be checked regularly, I'd put this down to being my first outing with it today.

Many thanks to Artie Morris for "discovering" the Kenko will work around Canon's crippling of the 1DX focusing.

ISO800 - f/8.0 - 1/1600 - -1 EV - 1120mm - 66.67% crop
