Hi all, I'm thinking about getting one of these for my 100-400 L on my 1Diii body, this will make it an f8 lense so will the AF still work? Also what is the IQ like? Does anyone have any sample pics I could look at?
Many thanks

Thank you, what about the IQ is it drastically reduced?

It works better with primes (IQ and focusing) than zooms IMHO.

Thank you, if I'm honest if I could afford a 600mm prime I wouldn't even be considering one but unfortunately £300 odd is more achievable than nearly £5000 at the moment which is why I'm looking at one, the other thing I could look at is swapping my zoom for a 400mmL prime at some point and use the extender with that if it would give better results

I do not recommended paying 300.00 for this to use on a 100-400mm. The results are not worth it IMHO.

Just my opinion.

I have used one with my 300 prime and it works very well. Image quality is very good but not the same if there was no extender

OK guys, thanks for the honest answer, I'll just have to save for a big prime

I've used a MK II on the odd occasion, while it's better than nothing I wouldn't rave about it...

it does get a lot more use on my 70-200mm though.

How about putting the 100-400 on a used (read: cheap) crop body? I keep my 60D for those times when I need the most reach out of my 100-400.

no offense meant - but for 300 pounds - isn't it worth a try to see if it fits your needs before spending the 5000 pounds? I mean, what kind of applications will you be using it for? there is a possibility that even if it isn't good enough to pass the test of printing huge 20 foot posters, it may be useful for 5X10s or web applications. Just a thought. YMMV

Quick Update, I took all of your advice and bought a 600mm prime rather than an extender
