Re: 500 f4 L IS II with Canon 2.0 XT III

I have the lens and had the T.C. I sold it. Never really used it. Light has to be just right. I found stopping down helped. For me just a non starter. AF speed horrible, AF very poor compared to the bare lens. But , I did not use it with the 5D III. And I have heard the AF is much better than the Mark IV, not sure.

I personally use the 1.4 very rarely.
