Consider...

    2018 World Cup

    Why Canon won´t design fixed lenses wider than 11mm?

    Canon EF 300mm f/4L IS + Canon 2x EF extender III (preferably on 7D II)

    Has anyone tried to pair the Canon EF 300mm f/4L IS with the Canon 2x EF extender III? What do you think of the results? Does it look better than 70-200 f/2.8L IS II + 2x + 1.4x or cropping 70-200f/2.8L IS II + 2x? Would you recommend this combo (300 f/4L IS + 2x III)? Thanks. Leandro
