canon 70- 200 with converter

Unread postby nathalie » Mon Feb 16, 2015 1:01 pm

I have the Canon 70-200 is usm 2.8 and a 1.4 converter. You can see the differents between the photo's with or without the converter.

Now i'm able to come to South Africa in october, but i probably cant afford the Canon 100-400.
I'm thinking about the 2x converterIII to have a little bit more mm.

Has anyone experience with this combination?

Hi Nathalie,

Before I got my 500mm prime I used my 70-200mm f2.8 L IS USM with a x2 MkII convertor (which I bought second hand). I have had some very good results with this combination but occasionally the focus isn't as accurate as I would like. The MkIII convertor is supposed to be better.

Thank you for your answer Richard!

If I can't afford the 100-400 I will go for this combination.
