Just a quick question about Canon's 2X TC III. I read the FAQ for TCs, so I know it should be good with my Sigma 120-300 2.8EX, and 70-200 2.8 IS II.

My question is, because Canon claims the Version III is optimized for Canon's super telephotos, is it worth difference to get the 2xIII over the 2xII with the approx $150 difference for the lenses I listed?
Thanks,
Darrin

2x III... Considerable improved IQ over the 2x II.

Thanks for the replies guys, The IQ is what I was concerned with. Just didn't want to pay for the latest model with no other gains. That shot looks good kin2son. Always nice to see an example.

Thx again,
Darrin

May I ask why there is a little metal/red ring around this birds leg? Beautiful shot! I just ordered the same lens and 2x III teleconverter today off B&H. Canon rebates end on 7/28. Also ordered a couple filters. I can't wait to get my hands on this stuff next week.:-)

I think the only reason to get the 2x II over the 2x III is if you plan on stacking the Canon 1.4x II
