And here it is...1st pics of actual real test shot with a 2xII/IDMKII. AF is a lil bit tad and as a result I missed a few aerial shots which I would not if I were using the 1.4xII. It took a few minutes for me to get used to the focusing but managed to get caught on. IQ is decent but expected on the soft side compare to the 1.4xII. Since the glass is now on the 600mm the subject became tight to compose a shot.

Wide open @f8

The bokeh is alright I guess considering another element was added...

I would only use this occasionally and would stick to the 1.4xII instead. But if you want to go in the 600mm this is really an economical way as it will save you $$$$'s and I recommend it. It takes awhile to get used to it especially the AF but knowing y'all are good shooters I'm sure it will be like a walk in the park :)

To those considering stacking TC's....

For some reason the IQ of them stacked 1.4xII/2xII is way better than the 2xII by itself. The AF is slow and WILL NOT use this combo for any sports activities. Perhaps the upcoming FULL Moon is in order so stay tuned. Otherwise, the 2xII is something to be use on occasion and I'll keep it for now.


300 f4L IS + 1.4xII + 2xII stacked handheld shot on a 1DmkII (exif full intact) unprocessed uncropped JPG.

Nice test on stacking TC's Patrick. Made me do some googling and found this one:

Canon 300mm f4 IS + 2x III, Sharpness test with a 10€ note (external link)

Does anyone have the 2x III and confirm this one with real world photos? If the quality is good then this could very well be the answer for a poor man's 600mm. I'm not saying though that the quality will be the same as the 600mm f/4 but if the quality is comparable to the 300mm + 1.4x then I would definitely consider buying this one. Longer reach but the tradeoff of course is no AF.
