Yesterday I wanted to make a photo far off so I put the RF 2.0 extender on the RF 100-500 (and R6): Turned camera off, put ext. on the lens and then on the R6, turned camera on, red light blinks a bit and then: nothing. Took out the battery and back in turned on camera: red light turns on and stays on but nothing happening. Tried 3, 4 times putting it back and on and off (also removing extender etc) after about 5 times I got it working. Today I tried it at home and after 3 times gave up: red light goes on and nothing happening.
Anyone any ideas? I did have it on the R6 with RF600mm a while back and that worked without a problem.
Also I'm very frustrating with the wifi/bluetooth/camera app/gps data thing, most of the time it doesn't work (properly). Like with the extender thing, putting camera off/on it turned out that there was except for about 5 photo's no location data recorded and the 5 recorded the location for my home, while the photo's where taken somewhere else. This happens almost always, while staying in a rented house a few weeks ago allmost all the data that was recorded was the house I was staying in!. So it is really a function that is a bit useless!
Apart for these thing I am enjoying the R6 and the RF100-500 very much!!
Maybe the lens is retracted to the minimum allowed with the TC? Zoom the lens a little past 300mm and see it the light comes on, keeping in mind that with the TC attached to the lens, it does not work from 100 to 300mm. The TC only works from 300-500mm, and the lens won't retract from 300-100mm. To transport this lens, the TC should be removed, and then the lens can be retracted.
