Dumb question. If I buy the 2x convertor for my 300L f4 IS, it will become f8. Will a 60D center focus work or only the 5d3 and 1dx?

Thjanks in advance!

There are more bodies on this list than I thought, but no 60D:

See what I see: 6500K, 160 cd/m^2, ICC 2, gamma 2.2.

Of the dSLRs that can AF af f/8, the 5DIII is the only one that's not a 1-series body.
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses

if you can wait, I am also waiting , the current one is not a very good lens, and its IS is really dated old tech.
