Got it used for a pretty good price. The story behind it is that I traded my 70-200 f4 IS to the f2.8 IS version so I can use the 2x TC and still keep AF @f5.6.

Didn't really have a chance to take it out for a spin, so some mundane pics follow.

I'll take it!!! It's great that this "little" thing gets me to 400mm...I only envision using it outside in good lighting. So stopping down a couple, I can get some decent shots. Certainly happy with the results!!!

Shot #1: Cat eating some yummy stuff. 140mm, Wide open, ISO800, regular indoor lighting. Just to see how it looks at the "short" end. 20ft away.

Shot #2: Cat eating again. 400mm, Wide Open, ISO800. 20ft away.

Looking good - I suppose you have a good copy of the TC and lens :) . Looks like it was snowing in shot #6, did you take the camera and lens out or were you in some covered area?

I guess so. Then again I don't think the 2.8 IS is known for problems.

I did the f4 IS to f2.8 swap with another photographer. The 2x TC came from a birder. So I guess I did business with the right kinds of people!

I actually like buying gear from other photographers...they can usually be trusted, both with the transaction and the IQ of the lens.

All of my lenses, except for the 24-105 have been purchased used. Might I add I saved myself a bundle!

As for the snow shot, yep it's been snowing here steadily. Winter's last gasp I guess until it shuts down for later in the year! They were shot from a window in one of my bathrooms. I was standing in the bath tub with the window open. Pretty safe. (Well, I could have slipped in the tub...:) )

I wish I had more color! Everything is so dead and cold...Can't wait until Spring. In April, I'm going to take this combo out for a spit at the zoo...looking forward to that.

I've read that to get good results I would need to stop it down.

But the pics of my cat, they came out OK. That was wide-open indoors. I'm very happy all things considering.

400mm gets me pretty close to things. I like it. However I can see why some say it's still too short for wildlife/birding. I'm not into that too much, however I want to dabble in it when the occasion calls for it. (Like the Zoo next month) But this will have to do!!!

So it's great. I take this little thing with me and it gets me to 400mm...vs. carrying another big piece of glass!

Can't wait to take it out for a spin...for real.
