This is a 100% crop of a photo taken with this combo. Not the best pic however, at 400mm,f/8 from a good distance it picked up the heat from the end of a cigarette! Not to bad for a cheap teleconverter!

Quite impressive! The 7-2II is some awesome piece of glass. Too bad for me it costs so much :(

I have to agree that this combo provides an overall better IQ than my 70-300 "L" did. :)

Sorry but I disagree the 70-300L is a sharp lens at 300mm wide open it better than 70-200 II with kenco 2x at 300mm.

NOTE:

[SIZE=2]When i recently performed the various 3rd party extender tests on the 70-200 f2.8 MKII lens i used the Kenko 2x MC4 DGX and it worked flawlessly and reported the correct exif data and AF was very responsive as noted in my test reports.

I also reported in my tests that the 3rd party Vivitar 2x MC7 non-reporting TC would NOT allow AF to function period at all with the 70-200 MKII lens.

https://photography-on-the.net …p?p=11888139&po​stcount=11

The Kenko 2x Pro300 DGX from recent reports i have received will NOT work either with the 70-200 MKII lens.

Obviously Canon has made some proprietary revisions on the 70-200 MKII lens internal circuitry which prevents certain 3rd party extenders to not allow AF & the correct exif to function.

My advice just like in my tests was to purchase either the Kenko 2x MC4 DGX that works just fine or purchase the Canon 2x II or III version extenders.

Also note that AF & Exif function properly even when i stacked the Kenko 1.4 Pro300 DG + Kenko 2x MC4 DGX + 70-200 MKII together.

You can see all the test results and the reporting info with pics i submitted in the "TC Extender Tests" link next to my Signature below.

Regards. ;)
