Just wanna ask.

Does anyone get the funky 'worn brake' sound besides the swoosh when it's focusing? Doesn't happen all time only when it's making small adjustments.

Just want to know if it's normal. :)

That's the IS at work. :) Congrats on the new lens!

This was outdoors on a sunny summer day, I was getting shutter speeds of 1/2000+ at f/4. I was using AI SERVO and afterwords I had a lot more OOF shots, and the image actually seemed to be worse then if I just cropped the original without the TC. I'll give it another shot, but so far it wasn't what I was hoping for :(

I'd seriously double check the results and heck take some shots on a tripod with manual focusing - might be that the contacts (camera/lens/teleconve​rter) for some reason didn't make perfect contact and threw out your focusing.

If even manual focusing dosn't bring the image quality back then I would consider getting the teleconverter looked at/repaired under warranty/replaced for another copy.


Tools of the trade: Canon 400D, Canon 7D, Canon 70-200mm f2.8 IS L M2, Sigma 120-300mm f2.8 OS, Canon MPE 65mm f2.8 macro, Sigma 150mm f2.8 macro, Tamron 24-70mm f2.4, Sigma 70mm f2.8 macro, Sigma 8-16mm f4.5-5.6, Raynox DCR 250, loads of teleconverters and a flashy thingy too

Cool, thought so. My MKI had a motor sound instead. Cheers!

Shot this one yesterday at Torrey Pines State Reserve in CA.
iso 50 (L on the 5D Mk II)
1/500 @ f2.8.

I dialed in -1EV to compensate for the harsh light. It was about 11AM so it was pretty bright.

I'll just come out and say it. Holy $hit,!! This lens is astonishing..!! I managed to only get a few quick shots as it came late in the day today, but man oh man. It's true what you read out there about this lens. The sticker shock goes away once you see the results.

I guess I can take sharpening out of my workflow. Also, the quality with the 2x is incredible as well. To me, it's almost just as good..

Unreal...

here's a couple snapshots..

Congrats! The MK I version really is no slouch but, the MK II is a champ on steroids. From the Af, 4 stop IS, & SOOC IQ, there's no doubt that it's worth the premium I paid for. :D

Do the users of this lens find it hard to create separation between subject and background? I'm just saying it... On a general basis... Do you see much pop in your pictures?

I'm just basically wondering if f2.8 is thin/fast enough for me. I've had the mark I in the past, and now have been wondering if I should just buy the 50L and save a grand for the 200 f2L. Hmmm. The 2.8 is a staple lens.

Shouldn't be a problem when you're shooting FF.
