Canon 300 f2.8 vrsI with 2x vrsIII camera 5DIII .......
I'm with the others who don't prefer to use it. HOWEVER, when you need the reach, I've found the newer Canon 2X very effective. If it happens to be on in a less than ideal situation, it can still work. Moving targets are tough with sluggish focus, especially with the 7D.
All taken with Canon 300mm 2.8L IS II plus Canon 2x III extender.
Looks like both old and new versions of the 300 2.8 IS work very well with a 2x TC III. Well done, very sharp captures, e.s. and Brian!

On my 1DX, it basically works like this - if focus is close to the subject, it locks on and will stay there during AI Servo (as with the race cars coming towards or going away from me). The AF in this case actually works fairly quickly, as compared to when the lens is way off focus. When you look through the viewfinder and everything is very blurry like the focus ring had been turned a good amount, then you half press the shutter button to tell the camera to autofocus, the lens works very slowly, moving the focus...Show more →
Thanks for the info, Will.
