I tried 100-400 II with EF 2XTCIII and 1.4TCIII stacked. I had to help the AF sometimes, MF to approximately in focus then let AF do it's job, entirely acceptable considering it's f16.

I'm torn. Size wise, it looks like the 50L + RF Adapter is about the same size as the RF 50. And I can put the 50L on my EOS M6 and my A7R3.

Rockwell shows a side-by-side size comparison a moderate scroll down this page:

https://kenrockwell.co​m …eos-r/lenses/50mm-f12.htm (external link)

The EF isn't half the length, but it's about half the bulk or size volume with the RF adapter mounted. If you want a lens for several bodies, the EF 50mm 1.2 makes sense.

This is insane capability, will be trying this combo out as soon as we see the sun again!

The EF 50L on the R is my favorite set up right now. It's a whole new lens. I predicted last year that when Canon put out a mirrorless body that allowed photographers to get over their fear of the focus shift, that the 50L would become a hot commodity. This lens has been one of my favorites for years (I've had it since 2011), and seeing it shine on the R is pretty cool. Really, the only consideration now is making sure the DOF @ f/1.2 isn't moving off of your subject when you breath :-)

Are you aware you need a 12mm extension tube between the TCs? (workaround for the V3 TC protruding front elements).
With both Canon V3 TCs and the new Sigma TC1401 / TC2001 TCs I have found 2X at the lens end and 1.4X at the body end of the combo maintains infinity focus. (with 12mm tube)

That's what I was thinking, as I knew you can stack the vIIs, but not the vIIIs.

AF that works accurately at high f-numbers and/or low light (even if slow or needing initial hints) is going to give TCs a better reputation in the future. Sure, TCs add a small amount of aberration themselves, but I believe that with good TCs, it is always better to use them than than to crop, except when focus is difficult or impossible with the TCs. Loss of AF or fast AF is the only reason I ever crop instead of using a TC.

How is the R at focusing with just the 2x at f/11? I was able to get my 5D4 to AF in live view with that combo, but not my A7R3. I think I'd like to get a 1.4 or 2x down the road and this will be a big factor for me. Thanks!

So nobody has gotten the 28-70 yet? I'm thinking it should be nicknamed "Colossus"

This is why I held on to my 2X MkII :) I figure if I'm ever stacking, I am going to loose any "MkIII Advantage" anyway.

I'd suggest this design was an answer to a question that no one was asking... thus no one seems to own it.

A lot of strange hate and criticism towards Canon and their product design decisions. I think this lens looks like an amazing single lens solution for people like me tired of carrying and swapping a bunch of fast lenses. I think the price is the biggest deterrent right now. If this guy was in the 2200-2500 range it would come across much better I think. I for one would love to own it, but not at that price. If I could get it for $2000 I might consider it

Canon is about to get a lesson in something in America that's called, "Now we're gonna find out how badly they really want to sell it and how big that margin really is/was."
