Very impressive. I hae a 100-400 and a 7d and have been considering the 1.4 teleconverter but that combination has gotten bad press. Maybe you could let us in on some of your secrets.

Thank you, I appreciate the comment. I really don't have any secrets......I just put the TC's on the lens and start shooting. Both of the TC's I have are Kenko, don't know if that might make a difference or not. I'm not doing anything different from what I was doing before adding the tc's.

Nice job, you can tape the pins on the 2x and it will help with auto focus. Plenty of places online to show you how. I think in the end, the manual focus works best.

My Canon 2x is fine for me if I have good light and am on a solid tripod. Your Ruddy Turnstone shots are really good converter or not.

Thank you Garry....the TC I got does AF without taping the pens, but the lens kept searching so I turned AF off and manually focused these.

Thank you Keith......I had really good luck with the 1.4 and was really surprised at the results of the 2X TC on the 100-400.

Wonderful shots there Sharon with the X2 Converter, I was thinking of getting one but was always worried that the quality would be rubbish but you have proven that it can work really well, both a steady hand and a lot of skill on your behalf have resulted in some excellent shots, Well done

Thank you Marco.....the 2X is sure a lot cheaper than shelling out those mega bucks for the 800L.

Very impressive! I just started trying out the 1.4x and 100-400L. I hope, with practice and patience, they turn out as good as yours did with the 2x. Wonderful! Love the attitude in the last pic.

Thank you Bob.....soon as our weather warms up a little bit more, I'm planning on playing with both these TC's that I have.

Yeah, he had that usual grumpy look, shortly after that shot he took off.

Thanks for the proof Shar824. There is alot of talk out there over 2x teleconverters. They say the proof is in the pudding. Well you brought the pudding to the table, using the 100-400. I was looking at the 7 element lens but seeing the 4 element work so well. Maybe the 7 element may even reduce the light that much more...Now all I have to learn is to shout as well as yourself. Well, that's my new 5 year plan. Thanks again so much for your photos

Thank you, I appreciate it. I also looked at the 7 element, but all the reviews that I found, said the 4 element was better in a side by side comparison...so that's the one I went with. I've been well pleased with it.
