Thanks mate, helps heaps. I'll wait for the tubes, have a play with those and then I'll look at getting the kenko. Appreciate you testing your gear & thanks to everyone else.  :D

Was looking for something else and came across this thread which may have some relevance to you ... apparently there are various versions of the Kenko 1.4x TC ...

My version has a green dot next to the made in Japan and operates with the 5D3

Thread here ....

My 5D3 (FW 1.1.3) works fine with the Kenko 1.4x PRO 300 DGX (blue dot) even if I have AFMA enabled. Lenses tested so far are 70-300L and 24-105L and both had AFMA adjustments by lens on both tele and wide ends.

QwRad - I have same camera, lenses and Kenko TC as you discuss. They seem to work fine.   What do you mean by "both had AFMA adjustments by lenses..........etc"
