This is my target lens for this year. Will it work with a 1.4x II?

Work yes but you could loose AF depending on your body.

T2i. I figured it wouldnt work. But I plan to use it for stuff that I can MF easily with, at least at that extended length. Time to start saving.

I got out and used my new (to me) 1D3 with the 400 5.6 and Kenko 1.4TC MC4.

I am very very happy with the results. I would recommend this combo to anyone

the images lack creativity and backdrop. but the quality remains the same

If you go to flickr the quality is much higher

Or get a Kenko extender. They're excellent.

I would but I already own a canon 1.4x II. No need to double up.

I have a Kenko 1.4x and my 7D still won't AF at f8 using it, so I'm not sure it would work with a T2i. I did allow my 6D to AF at f8, but not very quickly.

The Kenko 1.4 & 400 5.6 combo AF's decently well on a 1D2/1D3 body in good sunlight, mediocre in medium/poor lighting. I doubt it will AF on a T2i, it shouldn't anyways. In the past, I heard to "tape the pins" and tested it out with poor success on my previous 40D/50D bodies... it would attempt to AF, but it was very sluggish, def. not good enough for birds. I got similar results with the Kenko 1.4 & 100-400L (decent on 1D2/1D3 body, bad on 40D/50D).

the IQ should be pretty darn good. I am also very picky and a pixel peeper. the IQ with my 400 and kenko 1.4 blew me away.

I tried to find an example in my archives, but i can't remember so good when I tried the combination..
I'll have to head out and try it again...if this weather ever clears up around here...
