Got my Kenko 2X TC today in the mail, immediately plugged it onto my 70-200 f/2.8 MKII and 5DMKII to look for birds outside my house.

What do you think of the cropping? Other things I can do in post to make these better?

Sharpening only out of RAW into JPEG in LR3.

Also, don't know what this guy is. I like his colours, just wouldn't let me get close enough for a good shot :rolleyes:

Ahh thank you. I googled and it looks like a Yellow-shafted flicker, correct? Jittery little birds they are :D

It's a male Red-shafted Flicker.

Have to be excited about that 2X!. Beautiful bird. He looks a bit underexposed to me, I don;t know if the extender caused it or if it was just the exposure setting you used?

So many variables to get used to!

Oh I see. Thank you for the correction.

I was definitely (too) excited about the TC, that I did seem to have under'ed him a stop or two. I forgot to bring the flash, that would have probably helped bringing out some more details in the bird. Overall, I'm very happy with the Kenko as it only cost $170 shipped to my door. AF speed seemed plenty fast and the IQ is not bad. Sure I would like the new EF 2X III, but for the price difference, I can pick up a 580EXII and a BetterBeamer which would make for better pictures anyway.
