Pros: Compatibility on Canon Eos 5D MK III and 6D MK II bodies with all the optics of my kit, imperceptible loss of sharpness, light and compact.

Cons: I didn't find any

Opinion: Looking for the Pro 300 1.4 DGX on the used market, for the pros illustrated by multiple reviewers, I found a seller who was selling in bulk with the Pro 300 DGX 1.4x also the Pro 300 2x DGX of which I was a little skeptical. Given the favorable price I took them in pairs and I did not regret it because I have to say that for both are worth the same pros and to date no cons, with the optics with which I use them, especially Canon 100mm f2.8 Macro USM and Canon 70-200 f4 L IS USM. Concerned about possible incompatibilities with the 6D MK II complained of by other reviewers, I have to say that with mine he did not manifest any problems. Over-recommended

Pros: Compactness, lightness, price, value for money, AF and IS maintenance even with > f.4.0

Cons: I haven't found any so far

Opinion: I had the Canon Extender 2x II and, mounted with the 70-200 L f.4 IS USM, did not keep the AF, but only stabilization (as indicated by the House), and not only that: it was bulky and heavyer and only enthipped to this goal, among other Canon EF that I have in my kit. I decided to take this multiplier, bought used in excellent conditions in the physical store and with a guarantee of one year for 100 euros and immediately surprised me: lightness and footprint to a minimum, quality, combined with the 70-200 above, comparable to the original Canon II, and above all maintenance of the AF and stabilization. To my great satisfaction I also noted that it also engages all the other objectives with EF grafting while maintaining all the automatisms with these too. Obviously the Canon Extender 2x II I resold it to a guy who had the 300mm. f. 2.8 and the 70-200 f.2.8 with which it works excellently.

Pros: Value for money, comfort in travel/excursions, Robustness

Cons: Normal sharpness drop but certainly not so marked

Opinion: I have had it for years and those who buy it know what to expect as pros and cons. I believe that the people are in favour of choice. I also use it with the 70/200 F4 and outdoors it does not miss a beat despite the loss of stop and, honestly, I did not experience any particular problems of sharpness or anything else. I also used it with the 150/600 G2 with easel to photograph the moon and I cannot complain, despite the actual decrease in sharpness found; I'm going to post a picture soon in order to let the picture itself speak. If you travel a lot, I recommend it for sure!

Pros: value for money, doubling of focal point, construction

Cons: Sharpening, autofocus not always ready, not tropicalized...

Opinion: Now I use it frequently, especially in this period when I am approaching birds having a hawthorn that only reaches 200mm. Lights and shadows, the lights I would say that are greater: it is well built and reliable, the doubling of focal is very useful and in photos with good/excellent light the shots that you get are satisfactory; the shadows are partly physiological and that is the closing of at least one stop and more that means starting at least from a lens of f 2.8 if you photograph in discreet light, the problems come when the light begins to run out. If the light is inadequate everything gets complicated both for the autofocus that struggles to take the subject and the general yield that tends to dull everything a bit. The real shadow however is in general the loss of sharpness on the whole photo, which is attenuated by closing the diaphragm but only if you can (i.e. if we are in excellent light). Summing up I can say that I am satisfied if we consider that I paid 150 euros and that in some cases it becomes indispensable, that if the light there is in abundance the shots suffer very little from the drop in sharpness. Until I can afford a beautiful long native focal, I keep it tight!

Pros: Quality, value for money, compactness, discretion

Cons: Accentuates the difference in yield between the various aperture diaphragms multiplied (but perhaps it is normal)

Opinion: I took it almost for gaming, in a well-known but trusted site, much less than the amazon price shown on the card. Otherwise I do not understand why it's relegated to out-of-production: it's still on the Kenko product page, as "premium 2.0x", while the HD DGX is referred to as "standard 2.0x" and is on the net new and available a little everywhere. Open and tested in the evening at home, on my 200 2.8 L old, for which I mainly took it: so terrible conditions for a first try, a 400 f5.6 equivalent in poor artificial light .. instead, already here and for this reason I immediately gained my favors. The AF is kept fine, certainly with little light and close distances, the AF can lose the bandwidth and make a couple of end of stroke. If the subject is not completely out of focus, focusing is quick and accurate as without the 2x . This is confirmed by the evidence then made in optimum light,Coupled 200 2.8 and 2x telescopes always get well and quickly the distance even close to the minimum, 1.5m, where the resulting 400mm becomes almost a macro. The machine (5d2 in my case) recognizes the lens, as if 2x was not there, but also automatically doubled the diaphragms, 2.8 to 5.6 and so on. RnThis is very advantageous because it means that functions are maintained they assume target recognition (vignetting correction, digital objective optimization, distortion, etc.) but at the same time there is no risk of error in the opening. rn I still could not verify if it actually loses less than 2 stops in true brightness, just I can eventually update it. The rendering seems great! To honestly, by comparing successful shots (correct focus and no microrose) at f5.6, f8 and f11, you can see that the 2x telescope slightly accentuates the difference between f2.8 and two stops following in the non multiplied objective. Result: While the 200 2.8 smooth af 2.8 & egravis; already very good, and gets great at f4 and excellent at f5.6, once doubled with this Kenko the goal becomes good at TA (= f5.6), certainly acceptable in the middle but a little less incisive than the self itself , and a soft thread at the edges, while at f8 and f11 the yield returns really great and excellent as the lens does not multiply, over the entire frame. Already in f6.3 - f 7.1, there is an improvement. In fact, I expect that I will use it mainly at f8, where the bottom off is still nicely, and the blur remains very nice. In contrast to the smooth optics, they dance at 3 speeds: 2 for the relative opening halved, and one for double focus. Inevitable then have to resort to 640-800 iso even in daylight. I imagine that with a stabilized canvas is another life. The Kenko 2x adds just over 40mm of boss and about 200g of weight, so, to say, my "400" f5.6L does not reach 18cm from the junction ( without haze), and is of a pelor under 1000gr without plugs: we are well below the 26cm and 1250gr of the compact yet 400 f5.6 "true". Okay, the current Sigma and Tamron 100-400 stabilized are just a little bigger and more heavy than my 400-kit, and they offer the versatility of zoom and stabilizer. However for me the advantage is in the bag, in addition to the excellent 200 f2.8 L (which renders the above zoom if they dream), if necessary a 400mm f5.6 of quality. All for just over 100 euros (with the 350 spent for the 200 f2.8 used yet I do not arrive at 500 in all ...) and with just 2 more on the bag.rn Chromosome then, and recommended! Ciaorn
