Here is perhaps the craziest attempt yet. Sigma 150-600 with the 2x III with AF engaged (f13)... 1200mm :D

AF is slow and racks back and forth unless you get focus close manually, then it locks (single point mode). No Canon DSLR will do this at all, however useless this test may have been. This was in the neighbor's bushes, once I was able to locate what was moving around in the leaves. She is being a bit bashful, I think.

Oh, but Canon DSLRs can do that too, Cary. With stacked Kenko's. I've done it, years ago, when I tested stacked extender combinations, and the camera did AF. Images were not really useable, so I never used it in the real world.

They can only if the light is absolutely the best and the teleconverters aren't reporting. Once the lens combo reports back to the body that the largest aperture exceeds f8, the DSLRs won't even attempt focus.

If yours did, you must have been using third party converters or you taped the last three pins. I have tried just about every TC and stacked TC combination, even trying out the yongnuo knockoff white "Canon" TC.

Read my post again, Cary. I said I used “stacked Kenko’s”!

Yes, I saw that, and probably didn't word my answer correctly. :(

For others' edification, just because it is a Kenko or third party, it doesn't mean it doesn't report. My Kenkos did report themselves, and I had to tape the last 3 pins to stop that reporting. Stacking Kenko TCs, I found, isn't the greatest thing. I tried 2 x 1.4x (which is the same magnification level as a 2x), and that is when I went with a separate 2x, to eliminate all that extra glass. The Canon 2x III is better yet.

Posted in the M series thread, but going to post this here just in case there's something different with the focus peaking system in the M50:

How reliable is focus peaking on the M series cameras? I'm using a manual focus 12mm lens, and the peaking is telling me everything is in focus, but the image looks out of focus when I chimp. The lens is being used wide open (f/2.0). I've shot films with focus peaking on numerous non-Canon cameras (f/1.4 lenses with speedbooster) and it's been very reliable to say the least. So I'm not sure if it's a MFD issue or if Canon's implementation of focus peaking is enough to ballpark focus only.

With a 12mm f2, even close around 10', your dof is like 40-60'. What is your shutter speed? I have to assume the lens is faulty or shutter is too slow or you are too close?

Which lens is this, is it the Rokinon/Samsung?

Yeah, it's the Rokinon. I just took some test shots today at 1/40. Normally I'd switch over to autofocus (I've started using even AF lenses in MF lately) and test the peaking accuracy against AF. The shots I took today were at 1600, but I did find things to be a bit sharper when I used the distance scale on the lens. Is it possible that the DOF is so great at f/5.6 (kit lens) that I can't really tell what the focus is actually on when using peaking?

I'm happy to admit its user error since this is my first UWA this fast.

Usually UWA lenses have such huge DOF that you don't really worry to much about focusing on a subject in the scene, at least not to the scrutiny of a long fast lens.

However fast UWA can still be problematic is you are trying to focus on very close objects.

So it depends how near the object was that you were focusing on with the UWA. At some point though like past ten feet out, the DOF starts to go to infinity with that lens.

One way to double check focus peaking with the same lens is to focus using the peaking feature, then zoom in 5x to check the magnified view to see if it still looks good, or go the other way, get critical focus on the object, then zoom out and activate peaking to see what is highlighted.
