How does it works with the 24-70 f/2.8 and with the macro 100 f/2.8?
Asked by: Anisa R.
The Extender EF 2X III does not work with the 24-70 f/2.8 or the 100 f/2.8 macro. The shortest lens you can use this extender on is the 135 f/2.0.

Will this extender work with a Canon 5D Marc III, using the Canon 70-200mm f/4L IS USM lens in Auto Focus or will this be a manual focus only option. How much clarity, if any, will be lost.
Asked by: Anonymous
Unfortunately, you will lose autofocus using the Canon 2x EF Extender III with the 70-200mm f/4L IS on the 5D III. The extender will have an impact on the image quality you are used to getting from the lens, but the quality will be noticeably better than cropping the image.

Will it work with a EF 70-200 f/2.8L IS III USM on a 90D?
Asked by: Yo
While I don't have exact experience with your mentioned setup, I have used this extender with the EF 70-200 f/2.8L IS II (one version older) on both an 80D and 5D Mark IV. It works fine on both, aside from losing some speed/image quality that normally comes with extenders.

will this work with the Canon RF 100-400mm f/5.6-8 IS USM Lens ?
Asked by: Lucy
Yes but you will lose auto focus. You won't know if the shot is sharp until you get it to photoshop. The viewfinder isn't good enough. Using a monitor of at least 7 inches will help for tripod setups.'There's nothing more frustrating than seeing all of your images out of focus. These were taken handheld with this extender and the 100-400: www dot daviscustomdigital dot com/Launch-Photos/FH-ArabSat-2019/ I got lucky that day - manual focus!

Has anyone used this lens for videography? I use a c100 and a 70x200 f4 L. Are the results acceptable? Any negatives?

This teleconverter generally works best with a sufficient amount of light present in the scene.

Will the 2x auto-focus with a 70D body and 100-400L telephoto?Can you also confirm that the 1.4x will do so, as I read on the Q&A for that product?
Asked by: Anonymous
The 2x converter will cause the lens to be too dark for the 70D to autofocus as will the 1.4x converter.
