I suspect it goes something like this.

1Dx to Kenro 1.4 "hello, who are you then?"
Kenro replies - "Not telling":p
1Dx says in a huff "Bol*!x to you then. I'll ignore you and carry on as if you aren't there".

I thought all 1 series bodies autofocused at f8. Only the lesser bodies wouldn't go past f5.6

You missed all the fuss when the 1Dx was announced. :o

It is not designed to AF at f/8.
Artie read reports that the Kenko reports - like some above have noted - and was happy to find that it doesn't speak to the 1Dx, doesn't report and therefore allows AF at f/8.

Not surprising...my old 1D3 AF'd at f11 (one stop past spec)...it wasn't fast...but it did it...

Guess I missed it.....I'm not usually one to keep up with the latest releases :) I am somewhat surprised that they seemingly took a step back on the 1Dx if Canon is not specing it to AF at f8.

Depending on the lighting and a non-reporting TC (including the tape trick), just about any camera will focus at f8. The difference from the 1d series up to the 1dx was that they would consistently af and lock without the TC trick.

Exactly. So this "discovery" is just "mega-non-interesting". It's the same as it always has been.
