Anyone tested Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM + Canon EF 2x III Extender? Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM is not there in the compatibility list.

Why would you want a 200mm f/5.8 lens? Not the best use of the extender.

It's a very good use of an extender because the 100/2.8 Macro with 2x TC gives you a 2:1 (2x life size) Macro.

ditto others.  The EF 2x extender won't fit unless use a 12mm extension tube between it and the EF 100 f/2.8L IS USM Macro.  Or use Kenko or Tamron teleconverter instead.
