I'm sure I've seen a reference to someone putting a 1.4 extender on the Mk1 24mm to get a longer focal length but has anyone done this with the new model?

If so how have you found it?

I am sure results are bad; I seem to remember a post someone putting 1.4x on 35mm and results clearly showed no point doing it.

EDIT: Just realized from the title you are asking about TS-E. The lens I mentioned was 35L.

I have done exactly that on the 24 TSE MkII. I needed to get closer and required maximum depth of field for a particular shot and put the extender on. It worked just fine, I cannot comment on the quality as that was not the issue at the time it was to fill the frame with the subject and maximise the DOF which it did.

I did not notice the quality was particularly bad even so, the lens is probably one of the best Canon have made and the edge to edge sharpness wide open has to be seen to be believed.

Ahh that's where I read that, thanks :)

Still umming and arhhing over whether to get one so any additional capabilities add to the justifications list ;)

Intriguing. I've been considering getting the 1.4x II, but knowing I can use it with my 24mm TS-E II, makes it all the more interesting.

I wonder if the combination of the 2x II with a 24mm TS-E would have nearly as good IQ as the 45mm TS-E all by itself. It would be nice to have the 24mm and an equivalent 48mm TS-E in the bag for not too much added expense.

24mm TS-E II works well with a 1.4x TC. I can generally tell when I pixel-peep that I've used 1.4x, but sometimes I can't tell. (The EXIF data does not tell me whether I used an extender or not, like the telephoto lenes do, so I can't always remember if I used it or not). Net of it is, I do this frequently as I need something in 35mm for composition time to time.

I've tried with 2X and I wasn't happy with the results. It is not that sharp. My 24-70 at 50mm at f/11 was much sharper than 24 TS-E II at f/11 with 2X on it.

Both of my TCs are the version I, so maybe version III 2x would be decent?
