...The R doesn't recognize that the 100-400L is attached when using the x2. It displays F00. Focus peaking works but I want AF. It doesn't have to be fast but I want it to work.


Are you saying the Kenko 2x doesn’t work or the Canon 2x? My R reports just fine with Canon 2x III and the 100-400mm, and AF works fine as well.

Supports continuous shooting in silent shooting mode with the EOS R running Firmwmare Version 1.1.0 or later.
This firmware update is for lenses equipped with older firmware versions. If the lens’s firmware is already version 2.0.0, update is unnecessary.

Hello all,

Before I make up my mind, just one question to R users - how is the EVF in bright sunlight?? Most of my photos are taken during summer time, so should I just stick to OVF?

I love the EVF. I've taken plenty of photos in noon sunlight and what you see is what you get! I can't tell you how many times with the OVF of my 6D, where I had my settings dialed in, and due to the main dial getting hit, that everything looks good, but you then realize after a few photos that you blew them out, or were too underexposed.

EOS R where I had little to do.

Ya I agree Roy… The EVF well…...Its like as good or better than your Dsl OVF with many many benefits. and only a couple draw backs… its not as fluid as of yet… not terrible but still could be faster. There are many that can go into their version of EVF but I find the benefits out weigh the negitive.

Adjusting for shadow verses bright light it just shines as you can see and tweak to get the perfect exposer… I'm addicted.

The R does not recognize the 100-400L when attached to the Kenko 2x.

As always, there is no one or "the" Kenko 2x. There is more than 1 model, and multiple firmwares. Usually, when one does not work, it is a DGX version which works outside of Canon's TC protocol. My Pro 300 DGX 1.4 worked fine with my 6D and 7D, and crashes the 7D2 sometimes, especially with newer Canon lenses. The problem may manifest differently in an R and a late model DSLR, such that the R sees nothing at all with a DGX.

Kenko should have thought ahead and put a switch in the DGX TCs to turn them into normal reporting TCs when they fail with body and lens combos; now I can not recommend Kenko as readily as I once did.

Just tried a Kenko 2x pro 300 DGX (blue dot) with my R and 100-400 mk2,works OK, focus a bit slow,doesn't alter the displayed aperture so it's as if it wasn't there,as John says there have been many Kenko versions over the years,some of the older ones can be troublesome with newer cameras or lenses.

Looks like SmallRig has come out with an L bracket for the R. I went ahead and ordered one to give a try.

Looks to cover the entire camera bottom, but has a door for battery removal. Side piece looks to be forward enough to allow the screen to flip out.

Will advise more once in hand. Pics at the link

The older ones work fine, if we're talking 10 or more years ago. I bought the Pro 300 DGX when it came out, several years ago, and as I said it worked great on the 6D and 7D, doing what no proper TC should be expected to do: giving AF at f/8 in f/5.6 AF points, while also gving correct EXIF info, which it gave even if you stacked it with another TC. The older DG (what the DGX was supposed to replace) is what I currently use, virtually glued between the 7D2 and 400/4DO II, and it is visibly as sharp and contrasted as not using the TC. This DG has always worked as designed.

Kenko should have thought ahead and put a switch in the DGX TCs to turn them into normal reporting TCs when they fail with body and lens combos; now I can not recommend Kenko as readily as I once did.

I had specified the 300 in a previous post but wasn't aware of multiple 300 models and dots. Mine is a Kenko 2x TELEPLUS PRO 300 DGX with a yellow dot next to "Made in Japan". There is a little blue dot sticker on the bottom of the box. So for the sake of clarity I am rephrasing the results below.

With the R and Kenko 2x TELEPLUS PRO 300 DGX:
It works as expected with the 28-300L.
It does not recognize the 100-400L v1.
It recognizes the EF 24-105L II but won't AF and has communication errors when pressing the shutter.

The Kenko 1.4x TELEPLUS PRO 300 DGX works fine with the R and 100-400L v1.

With the 80D and Kenko 2x TELEPLUS PRO 300 DGX:
It works as expected with the 100-400L v1.
It works as expected with the 100-400L v1 and stacked with the Kenko 1.4x TELEPLUS PRO 300 DGX.

Ha,the eternal mysteries of the Kenko system,mine has the blue dot where yours is yellow,I think it's a date of manufacture thing the firmware will be different.
The more recent incarnation had "Teleplus HD" printed on and these worked with EFS lenses as well as EF (not too bad with the EFS 55-250 actually with a 1.4x),the most recent release is the "Teleplus HD Pro",these only fit EF lenses but are supposed to have high resolution optics,can't wait for the next gripping episode lol.
