Per Canon the IQ is better then the 100-500 with 1.4X

Are you referring to that MTF chart?

I think the jury is still out regarding IQ until we start to see more results coming in (upon the 200-800's release). I don't doubt the l/mm spec, but there would also be concerns IMHO about contrast, micro-contrast, aberrations, distortion, corners, color fidelity, veiling glare, etc (largely due to the less expensive price point, ie guts).


Agreed, while the charts can be useful, well, I prefer looking at images.

Just like I expected. We knew the 100-500 edged out the 200-800 but are neck in neck when you put the 1.4 on the 100-500.

Thank you for the MTF reference. I liked looking at it
