Guys, thanks for the 2x images, this definitely gives me the confidence to get this lens over the 100-400, as the 70-200 gives more flexibility and image quality. :)

Are you guys using the Canon 2x?

Ian.

Mine is the canon 2x. I got it mainly to keep weather sealing, but I've also seen that the Canon 2x II seems to be a little better than the Kenko 2x. The 1.4x I have is a Kenko, which I like because it's just as good as Canon's, and I can stack it with my 2x if I really need to. I did that for the first time last night, but won't get to look at the pics at 560mm until later today. They looked decent on the LCD though.

I thank you too. I would love to see more shot with TC's.. I'm just about ready to pull the trigger. I was originally planning on the new Sigma os, but have come in to some additional funds.

Thanks

Well, these are all with TCs! All but the 2nd are with the 2x TC. The second shot, believe or not, is at 560mm, f/9 (so 1/3 stop down) with stacked 2x and 1.4x TCs. The reason the framing is similar to the other batter shots is that this is the full frame on that shot, while the other batter shots are cropped.

I went to the Pirates game last night because I'm sadistic and like being tortured, but the actual game aside, I was able to get a couple decent shots from my seat about 2/3 up along the 1st base side.

First, Ronny Cedeno lines a base hit to left field:

Hairston pops one up:

So Jordan, would you say the mkii with 2x is a no brainer? My original plan was the Sigma and a 100-400, but now considering this lens with 2x..

Thanks..

From my recent trip through northern California. I only took two lenses, the 70-200 II and my Zeiss 35/2. Here's a few from the 70-200 on the beach, PP a fair amount due to the setting sun.

was doing a little testing on this lens after reading about the "de-centered issue", shot at 200mm, tripod, 1/100 (2sec timer), f2.8, iso100, live view, IS off, evaluative metering; shot in raw and converted straight to jpeg. this picture seems pretty sharp at 100% crop, but when i shot handheld at the the same settings, minus the live view, tripod and self timer and IS switched onto mode 2-the picture isn't as sharp. anybody could tell me what i am doing wrong here? i'm pretty new to photography, so any advice or comments are welcomed. btw, this was with a 5D II. TIA.

Why are you using IS-mode 2?
