Yep I have the 80D (I do manual focus for my shots) I have smaller lenses a cheaper canon 70-300 the older version. But I primarily use canon 18-135 and sigma 100-400. I will look to see if that converter fits the 100-400.
So do you recommend the sigma 2x then? (If it fits my sigma)

I would get either the Sigma currently priced at $315.13 at Amazon or the Canon 2.0 priced at $429.00

Keep in mind your Canon 70-300 will not fit on the Sigma extender. I sure wish I knew why!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Kenko is priced at $181.42

And YES your Sigma Lens will fit the Sigma extender!

So the Canon lens won't fit the Sigma extender, but will the Sigma lens fit the Canon extender? The Sigma 150-600 C is on my wish list and I had been thinking I'd also like to get the extender. I have tentatively identified the Sigma because it's a bit cheaper, but it might be worth a little extra for an extender that works with more of my lenses. Of course, I would probably only really use it with the 150-600. If I needed more reach than my 70-300 provides I'd probably switch lenses before adding and extender. Of course all predicated on the assumption that I get the 150-600!

Oh that 70-300 hasn’t been touched since I got the sigma ߘ so no problem there but thank you for those price checks!

I'll have to try it. I use the Canon connect app on my android. Not sure if you can zoom in on that, but I guess I could use the live view on the camera to focus and then just use the remote connection for the shutter.

I ordered the sigma 2x off of Amazon for $273 brand new! Signed up for the Amazon credit card just for the $60 Amazon gift card to use towards that.

You are correct. My fingers are too big for my phone keyboard. I fixed it.

Maybe of interest here.
Last weekend I shot the moon at a few different focal lengths

200mm through a 70-200
600mm through 600f4
1800 through an orion cc6 , actually a 2 shot pano to get it in frame

All 3 are good, but the telescope is by the best showing the most detail which is to be expected!!
