I would go with the Canon 1.4x - stay with Mfgr and Mfgr ... the lens is build by Canon for Canon ... and if you go with Canon lenses later too, it fits. The savings is not great enough to sacrifice the quality. You bought a Canon camera for a reason. Earlier in my career, every time I tried to save a few bucks, it always cost me double, buying the less expensive version, then selling it for a loss, and buying the more expensive version.

Not trying to 'bad-rap' other manufacturers here specifically - but Canon makes a good product. I know, I know, money talks savings, but quality talks too. You'll never get a chance to shoot that image again, and you have it forever if you ever decide to use those images later for other reasons (like sales?)

Thanks for the great information! I feel comfortable proceeding with investing in better lens's rather than the body for now. Later on perhaps moving up into the FF.
Thanks again.

I will start with a 1.4X teleconverter. Is there one that is better than the other? I have the Sigma OS 70-200 2.8 so should I stick with the Sigma teleconverter ($250) or the Canon ($450)? And finally would the 2.0X be better than the 1.4X?

Thanks again

Have you looked at the new sigma 120-300 sport version? If you are going to get longer lenses, i would certainly include that in the mix for consideration.

Heya,

Nope. You want to probably stick with a good crop for the reach. Instead of buying a $3500 camera, you'd do better having a secondary lens, like a 400L.

Very best,

I would have to agree with him. Most Events that you will be shooting with have some what ok light compared to what I've seen. I would go for a long lens too.
