Will it work??? not the Teleconverters primary use but will it work?

I researched a bit here and I see someplaces it says it will but there are also some that say it wont.

Can someone clarify?

Thanks
Steve

I've used it with a non-Canon brand tele-converter before. Not sure if a Canon brand would work.

I was curious whether or not my Tamron 1.4 would work with my 85mm (1.8) lens, so I just set it up, and..... (drum roll), it works NICELY. I never used them together until two minutes ago.

I have never had a problem with using my tamron TC with any of my lenses, nor with any lens I have previously had, nor with any lens I borrowed from friends. I remember reading some other threads about Canon's TCs sometimes giving problems with such and such lenses, but my Tamron... no problems, and AF always works for me too.

Yes, i have tried my Kenko 2x extender on my Canon 85 1,8 lens and many other shorter lenses and it works. Although it's a weird combination. :)
