Thanks Hank, it would be attached to a 800L f/5.6


ever comparo I've seen the 1.4's are pretty equal, but the 2x III is far better then 2x II.

Absolutely agree.

While i've noticed an improvement with the new 1.4, the new 2X is so good, that should one be lucky enough to mate it with the new 70-200 f/2.l IS II, they will be stunned at the improvement.

I never used the earlier 2x's as the degradatation in quality was just too great. Now, I actually struggle to see any meaningful difference with the 2x.

Best bang for your photo buck

Interesting I tried the 70-200f2.8Lii with the 2xii teleconvertor and wasn't really that happy with the results and ended up buying the 400f5.6L

you have any sampfrom you could post with the new 2xiii?
