This is really, really interesting: https://www.the-digital-picture.com...=35054&utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=facebook

Turns out that with a little physical modification, you *can* use the RF teleconverter with an EF-RF adapter to increase the focal length of all EF lenses.

It's unfortunate that there had to be a drill involved to do this, but I'm sure a third party will release a different adapter soon that accepts teleconverters with this knowledge out there. This is super cool, I may buy one of the off-brand adapters, and put a drill to work to try this out.

Fun that the 24-70 turns into a 34-100mm F/4, wonder what other useful combinations there are? I think this would mostly be useful to add another 1.4 extender to any EF lenses you'd want, I'd like to see the RF 1.4 combined with the EF 1.4x for some easy extra reach.

So this would let me use a 70-300L with a 1.4 or 2.0 converter! :love:
I would love to see what the IQ was like with that combo

It probably still would not let me use my 100L with a TC. They seem to be incompatible and go crazy if you can find one that fits.
