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

Tim


Thanx Tim. I don't trust the tc.I need to try it on my 7D with the 500 to see if it might be the new to me 1D4.

Hey Ron, maybe I'm confused Looks like you used the Mark IV not the 7D

Great looking shots.

BTW the EXIF looks correct to me

Last image:
Exposure Time (1 / Shutter Speed) = 1/8000 second ===> 0.00013 secondLens F-Number / F-Stop = 56/10 ===> /5.6Exposure Program = aperture priority (3)ISO Speed Ratings = 800

Sharp as a tack! (I refer to the lens and extender, Ron heh, heh ).
Some very fine images in the series.

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.

Kirk


Thanx Kirk. Yes, there were some oof shots. I'm pretty sure I'll have to send it back for other issues though.

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.

Morris


Thanx Morris. I will clean all he contacts. I'm happy with the IQ of this one, and it focuses fast too, so if I can get this one to behave, I'll keep it.

Someone told me you were a little confused all the time Chad... I did forget to mention that I recently picked up a MK4.
And thanx.

Images look good buddy!

Any chance you need another or a more current update to firmware in the 7D?

I have had great results with my old 500 in my old MKIII with my old 1.4TC VII

Take care and just keep shooting and glad to hear you got out to enjoy!

Thanx Socrate. I didn't really want to spend the $$, but I am still leery of a full frame camera's reach, and the price on the MK4 seemed right.

Sorry to confuse you Karl - it's easier than I thought... But I picked up a MK4 and was using that. The tc seems to work well on the 7D, so now I am wondering if it's the MK4 with the "problem".

If you are still having problems with the TC Ron I will be happy to do more testing for you . These are great photos, to me, seems like there is no degradation in IQ.

Thanx. I am happy with the IQ of these shots, but the operation may be a little flakey. I'm not sure if it's the tc or the body, but the tc seems to work well on my 7D in a limited test drive.

So are you referring to your reflection in a mirror, or my shots Conrad? If it's the latter - thanx.

Thanx Lynn. It's using great gear, and maybe just a little, (45+ years), experience.
