Jasonism - how does the 70-200 v2 + 1.4TC impact focus speed while shooting skating? My 70-200v1 +2x is nearly useless in that environment.
Well, hard to say since I've only shot ice skating with the bare 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II. But given my experience with both the 300mm f/4L IS and 100-400mm L IS, their focus speed pales when compared to the 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II + 1.4x III.
70-200mm II bare:
With the 5D3 + 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II + 2x, I had no trouble capturing birds in flight. So I don't think you will have trouble using it with the 1.4x III.
5d3 with 70-200L II + 2x III:
Hope this helps with you decision.
