Two things:

  • Just check the RF70-200 and there is not enough clearance when full zoomed (set at 200mm for the current RF 1.4 extender to fit so the RF 2.0 extender certainly will not.

Hi, have you physically tried this? Or measured? What are the measurements for the protrusion of the RF1.4x and RF2x extenders, respectively? Thanks

  • You are assuming it is a physical constraint with RF100-500 lens, until we see one in the wild, we are only speculating, it could be an optical limit not a physical limit

I have read about a physical feature that prevents contact of the elements.
