Theses are exceptional Sharon. I never have much luck using manual focus with birds but you have clearly mastered the technique.

Thank you Don......I think it was nothing but beginners luck on the manual focusing thing. :D That's the only draw back to using the 2X that I've found so far.

Amazing stuff...I may have to consider a TC for the pump and learning some manual focus skills....:)

Really love the last GBH...Looks how I feel at work most of the time these days :p

Thank you Eric.....I need a lot more practice manually focusing. There's such a tiny window to get perfect focus, it's usually hit and miss with me....it's mostly miss.

The GBH is funny, he'll only take so much of people being in "his" area, when he's had enough, he gets that really grumpy look and then flies off. I can always tell when he's about to leave.

Great captures Sharon ! :D

Does anyone have any feedback or hands on knowledge of how this Kenko 2x MC4 DGX would work with the 70-200 f2.8 MKII IS USM ?

At only $129.00 it would be a bargain versus the the new Canon TC III price.

Regards, ;)

verrry niiice! :)
I have a Kenko Pro 1.4x but haven't really had the chance to really test it on my 100-400L... Not much to photograph in an ice storm.

Good job, as always!

Thank you Gabe....I had really good luck with the Kenko 1.4, hopefully you'll get to try it out before long.

Sharon as a result of your outstanding captures here in this thread i have since purchased the Kenko 2X MC4 DGX and performed some extensive testing with some other various 3rd party extenders on both the 100-400L & 70-200L F2.8 MKII.

Your great captures did not cost me much money but has probably put my desire for the 500L on hold for a little while longer ! :lol:

Regards, ;)

Thank you Ron.....with the results that you've gotten with the TC, it makes not having the 500 a little more bearable LOL (but I still want one)
