I've had this tc for about 4 years, but since I had no lenses that would auto focus on my 7D with the tc, it has remained largely unused. Taping the pins did not help. When I purchased the 500 F4 II, I thought I'd give it another try. It still did not work properly, so I sent it to Canon. Since I got it back, I have not had a month or so ago, I have not had a chance to give it a work out, so this morning I went looking for some migrating boids. I found some Ringnecks in the same lake as last year, but they were skittish, and since I had no food, I couldn't get them as close as I'd like, but that did not stop me from shooting.


BTW - the tc seems to work, but reports the F stop as "0.0", and it switches between "AI Servo" and " Manual" by itself...

So here are 5 shots including a bonus gull flyby.

This is pretty cool Ron. Looks like V-II can take the older TC's well

Not sure what you mean by this. Are you referring to AI Servo vs. One-Shot?

The shots look great Ron, that part seems to be functioning quite well. The exif reports 700 so the camera has it figured out. That said it is somewhat disturbing that you the 0.0. It seems that Canon didn't fix all the way I don't want to rain on your parade but I'm not sure I would trust the tc

Thanx Eric. I am happy with the shots, but think I will have to send the tc back.

Thanx Shreeni. I may not "have" to upgrade to the MK III after all.

I mean it switches to MANUAL focus - not something I want to deal with as it will surely happen at the wrong time.

Ron, this is a great set. Those ring necks are so cute and fun to watch. They have returned here too.

IQ looks good on these Ron... did you have any images that were OOF? If so, you may need more testing or return TC to Canon.
Mr. and Mrs. both look good, and so does the Gull... such pretty light on the Mrs.

These look great Ron. Id try cleaning the contracts on the TC, lens and body as it sounds like something is not making.

There is always the Canon 1.4x TC III and this wonderful third party converter:

I have the Nikon version and its more compatible than any of the Nikon TCs and IQ excellent.
