Had the 2xTC III for use with the 70-200 II, but felt I just ended up with a cumbersome heavy combo. Probably should have chosen the 1.4 EX instead also giving me f4 and not 5.6. Had to send the lens to Canon as the lens new out of the box had a defect rubber gasket at the lens mount (part missing). Also I am not that impressed on the sharpness. It is great but not great as in fantastic.

My first soccer match with this lens! A lot of intensity from two, ten-year-old girls!

Nice shot old shooter!

Is that real turf?  It looks so perfect.

I currently have the 2xTC III + 70-200 II combo and it works well except in low light (as expected). I had previously the 2xTC II and the IQ was inferior to this combo. Still, you pay for having the zoom flexibility instead of prime 400mm 6.5L higher carrying weight
Body: 5DIII. Prime Lenses: 15mm f2.8, 100mm f2.8L IS, 35mm f2 IS, Extender EF 2X III.
Zoom Lenses: 16-35mm f4L IS, 24-70mm f2.8L, 70-200mm f2.8L IS II. Others: Flash 580EX II, 270EX II & MR-14EX II

Forgot to add...the weird bokeh in the cat pic is due to the fact it was shot thru a chain link fence...
