Pros: Double the focal length, improved AF performance and quality compare to 2x MK II TC, good quality even in low light.

Cons: Canon make very bad move not allowing to stitch the 1,4x and 2x TC, which was possible with the Mark II edition, loosing some light and AF performance

Opinion: I use it almost full time with my EF 300mm f2.8L IS USM lens and I am really happy with the results. I recommend upgrade from MK II version of the 2x TC. I guess is much better with the MK II lens, but I am still satisfied with it now. Had to agree the quality is much better with this two on a FF body like 5D MK III, but I am expecting that the 7D MK II will make this lens and extender a hot couple even on crop sensor.

Pros: -Surprising high image quality for a 2X extender -High build quality, water resistant.

Cons: -autofocus with the 2x extender is disabled on F5.6 lenses such as the 400mm 5.6L, though you can actually autofocus through live view mode using contrast detection. -strong purple fringing at times when subject is against the sky. You can work around this be turning the saturation down on the purple color though. -soft at the wide open aperature. Stop down one click (one third of a stop) and most of the softness goes away.

Opinion: I have a Canon 5D Mark II. Using the 2x extender III on the Canon 400mm 5.6L is the cheapest way to get to 800mm using Canon L series lenses. The 400mm lens can be bought refurbished for 1000$ and the extender is around 450$ on sale. 1450$ for 800mm is very good value. Checkout my eagle pictures on my profile to see the image quality. As i mentioned, I recommend stopping down one third of a stop to get more sharpness. For example, if you are using the 2x extender on a 2.8 lens, the aperature will now be F5.6. Stop down to F6.3 for sharper results. I usually shoot at F13 on my 400mm 5.6 lens. UPDATE FEB 2013: I have been now using the 2x extender with the 135mm F2 and the 24-105mm. Yes you can used the 2x extender with the 24-105mm if you place extension tubes in between. see my macro photo of the wedding ring.

Pros: quality, yield, weight, clutter.

Cons: nobody .... price?

Opinion: taken used ... but equal to the new ... just recently, I took it to match it to 70/200 2,8 is II, I did not notice any differneze rendering or autofocus details when using the 70/200 alone or in pairs. I bought it because I had the old pompone 100/400 but, despite being satisfied, I had to go around with 70/200 and 100/400 to cover the focals up to 400 (hence two beautiful heavy targets + the rest of the etc.), with the 2x 2x extender I solved the problem, weighs a bit, is not very compact and with the 70/200 2,8 series 2 it has a great output with both 5dmk3 and 1dmk3.

Pros: You can have a twin focus with a small object. Great construction, good optical quality.

Cons: In addition to those known, the presence of light chromatic aberrations.

Opinion: The 2x is of great and undeniable utility, having in its full size, the ability to stretch its optics consistently, has no price. The design quality is great, I personally used it on the 70/200 and the 300 isII. The 70/200 suffers the presence of the tc, the quality drops considerably even in good light conditions, but you do not think to replace the 400 5.6L, which gives the best results for AF speed, no color aberrations and Best optical quality. The 300 2.8 isII also has a loss of sharpness, but the quality is still good, but not excellent. For those who dream of using this tc on a darker view of his, I absolutely recommend this operation, a 400 5.6 would become a 800 f11 with no af and with unacceptable quality (unless you are intent on doing astronomical photos)

Pros: Build quality, optical output, and AC tropicalisation

Cons: You can not mount it on all lenses as some compatible nor cascaded with another multiplier as did the series II

Opinion: I replaced the Canon 2X II series with this series III. Tried to bottom along with the Canon 300 f / 2.8 IS, the new multiplier behaves considerably better than the chromatic precedente.rnL'aberrazione has decreased significantly, almost completely assente.rnLa practical use optical quality is very good and the average of focus shots it is greatly increased compared with the old optics multiplied serie.rnAnche the AF is more reactive than that preciso.rnL'unica thing I would like is to be able to also use other lenses that are currently exploitable only multipliers with third parti.rnAlberto
