Above, this photos is the lens at it’s maximum zoom of 200mm using the teleconverter which makes it a 400mm equivalent image. Since I’m shooting on a T4i which has a 1.6X crop factor, this image would then become the equivalent of a 650mm zoom if the T4i were using a full frame sensor.
Seeing as I literally just took these test shots, I notice very little or no deterioration of the image which to me seems to be a massive step up from the poor reviews and aberration / softness that the version two extender received.
A full set of images with and without the teleconverter with the 70-200mm lens at minimum and maximum zoon are available here for your viewing.
I’ll post more images in the coming days once I get a chance to really test this new toy out!
