Hi all. Looking for a little advice and knowledge here.
I recently picked up a couple new toys, partially for an upcoming trip to Yosemite and partially because I am planning on upgrading to full frame in the near future, hopefully before the trip in November.
I bought a 200mm f/2.8L II to give me something on the telephoto end since both of my zooms are EF-S lenses that won't work when I upgrade my camera, and I wanted to get a taste of L glass at a decent price. I also picked up a 2x Extender III, both items at very fair prices on EBay.
When I have just the 200 on my camera (currently an older XSi, but hopefully soon a 6D) it seems borderline whether I would need to use a tripod collar. When I have both the lens and the extender attached, the balance is completely different.
For those with experience with this lens and especially with the lens and an extender, do you use a tripod collar? Is it placed on the lens or the extender (that may be a stupid question)?
Thanks in advance.
