XF 1.4x/ 2.0x extenders with XF 150-600mm, on XH2s

I started to try these combos. At f11 and f16 the AF is really problematic unless there is a very brilliant light. With the 1.4x, handheld remains possible if you are a steady one. With the 2.0x a monopod is the very minimum.

I would say with both the monopod is a necessity to achieve MF since AF won't be reliable in most situations.

There is an important dicrease in IQ with both eventhough these combos allow A4 print after PP using the RAF files with quite good results.

The 2 converters are solutions when still shots can be done on very far targets, provided these targets  are big (animals, birds, ...) since fine details will be smudged.
