Here's another shot of the 70-200 combo: i.e. 70-200 mk.ii + 2x mk.iii MAF'ed on a 5Diii: Lots of usable footage.

I have the 70-200 f2.8 IS and the Canon 2x II extender. I have to say that I was quite impressed with both the IQ and the speed of the AF. To be honest when I bought the extender I really was expecting the worst, but ended up being very happy.


Just got the Kenko 2x TC DGX.  On 5D MkIII, it ONLY works with 70-200 II, not anything else, which I expected since my Kenko 1.4x only works with 70-200 II as well.  Kenko can keep denying compatibility problems with 5D III and put their head in the sand, but problem exists. 

On 70-200 + 2x TC, probably cropped out 80% of the photo.  It was at dusk, so iso2000.
