Had pretty good luck using the 1.4 TC, so thought I'd try a 2X TC. I bought one from B&H...the TelePlus MC4 AF 2.0X DGX Teleconverter. These are the results of my trip to my favorite island yesterday afternoon. These were manually focused, the 100-400L kept searching so I turned AF off.

Ruddy Turnstone...

Very nice, Sharon. I've had no luck with a TC, maybe gave up too quickly. I especially like the first couple shots.

Thank you Stan....the 1.4 TC I've had for about 3 years and just never really used it until a week or so ago. I like the turnstone shots the best also.

Wow, mine never worked that well. Either the 2x or the 100-400. These are sharp.

Great, great stuff Sharon. That first Turnstone shot is crying out for a frame, beautiful.

Looks like it's working pretty good, Sharon - very nice series - I've had mixed results w/ a 1.4 and have been reluctant to try a 2x, but those are really sharp.

Thanks Mitch....I guess I was really lucky with the 100-400, it was tack sharp straight out of the box. It's the ONLY lens I've ever used since I got it. The 2X is rather surprising also, I've very rarely seen good results or heard very many good words about it.

Thank you Steve....that little guy was funny, the more he heard the shutter the closer he came, I had to keep backing off on the length of the lens. I really like the turnstone pictures also.

Thank you Dean....until I get my hands on the 500L...the TC's will have to do.

I always read that a 2x TC is not a good idea, but you certainly made it work here, Sharon, for these are great. Those Turnstones are standing out for me though. Great shooting.

Thanks Levina...I've always heard the same thing about the 2X. The Turnstones are my favorites also.

Amazing IQ with the 2X converter. Did you have to apply any extra sharpening to these or just your normal workflow? I've been considering a 2X converter since I've been real happy with my 1.4 Canon and 1.5 Kenko...even stacked.
