Does the job as expected

By

from Bedford, TX  -  Photo Enthusiast

This tele works wonderfully with my 70-200 2.8 G. With the little bit of testing that I've done, there doesn't seem to be much (if any) image degradation caused by using this multiplier. Be sure to use it with bright light on moving subjects, as the stopping down of light must be overcome by slower shutter speeds. Hand holding is possible, but only if extremely bright light is available. Definitely use some type of support if you can for steadiness. My copy is a little tough to attach/detach to the lens, but I don't think that is a con. To me it means the tight tolerances improve performance of the lens geometry.
