  1. I just got my new Canon 5D Mk IV to replace my 5DMk II and I'll be using it next year to do high school and hopefully community collegiate football night games at field level. I was thinking about getting this 2X Teleconverter for my 70-200mm F/2.8 using a monopod. Since I can't afford a 600mm f/4L IS II USM Lens like you guys……lol

  2. Thanks guys. I have been debating on the same thing, teleconverter or not?
    Can you guys do the same test with the new Sony G Master 70-200mm & G Master 100-400mm? And maybe comparing sharpness with these Canon lenses.

  3. Hallo, T&C I followed your advice and It worked as you mentioned. Meanwhile I switched to the Sony A9 and 6500 using Canon 2X converter with the 70-200mmf2,8II with the Metabones or MC11 and it worked great too. (the MC 11 doen not work with the 500mm f4 II but the metabone does( even with 1,4 and 2x converter). Now I have seen (DxOmark) that the Sony 70-200mm f2.8 GM is better than the Canon. I want to switch since native lenses work the best on the A9 but I see mixed reaction on the 2X sony converter. As our big adviser I look of course to the T&C team for advice.

  4. Hi Tony % Chelsea, thanks so much for that awesome review, can you please tell me how you achieved that look in this video?, any LUTS you could share, etc.?, Greetings from Venezuela

  5. Hi Tony & Chelsea, I was wondering if you could recreate this video only using the Sony lenses. I am wanting the reach of the 400mm so wanted to know if getting the Sony FE 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 GM or if I should get the Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM with the Sony 2x Teleconverter SEL20TC. Thank you so much, I appreciate all your videos.

  6. These guys clearly don't shoot sports or any fast moving subjects. Try shooting sports with a 70-200 and 2x converter, you can't because the converter slows down the autofocus too much. I own both the 70-200 and the 100-400 for a reason.

  7. I'm planning on buying the 70-200 F4 IS ii, and using the 1.4 and 2.0 separately, anyone know if these are a good combo and what my effective largest aperture will be using the TC's ?? Thankyou.

  8. For wild life could I get away with using a 70-200mm on my canon 80d?? Considering crop factor, I'll be able to get kinda close to the 400 if it were on a full frame. anyway.

  9. Okay I got the 7d mk2 and I got a 70-200 2.4 is II lens, for extra reach and bird photography ie flying birds or resting birds would this work the 2x converter like would my autofocus still be decent for flying birds and would the quality still be decent for resting birds, I’m not looking to do anything for National Geography yet just something that will help me capture really good stuff and then later I’ll get better gear if needed

  10. This is ridiculous, they have another video where Chelsea states that she doesn’t like using teleconverters because she find they increase the zoom in the view finder but not when you look at the actual images. It’s at the end of their comparison with the sigma and tamron 150-600

  11. Hi Tony & Chelsea, thank you very much for this quick review, sweet & to the point. Just one additional question, did the focusing also worked as well with the 70-200 + 2X teleconverter? Since you guys didn't bring it up, I'm assuming focusing was about equally fast and accurate.

  12. I tried the 70-200 with a 2X converter. I am afraid the focusing speed is a tiny bit slower. This may be critical for wildlife photographer. 100-400 mm lens is a bit better in focusing speed. I'd rather prefer keeping the 70-200 as a traveling lens, taking portraiture, while using the 100-400 mm for wild life shooting.

  13. Previously I had 400 f 5.6 & now I am using 100-400 is ii with 7d mk ii both lenses are great but just wanted to know if I add a TC 1.4 iii then how many autofocus will work with 7d mk ii with 100-400 is ii + tc 1.4 iii?

  14. Tony and Chelsea still following you every day! What I know I’ve, largely, learned from you and watch all your camera and lens reviews. Wonderful! Macro I learn from Don Komarechka whose new Macro book will be out at Christmas. He’s close enough to attend workshops. It’s been about five years now – you guys are inspirational ❤️🇨🇦

  15. What about the EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS III USM with Canon 2x III TC on a Canon 80D (APS-C): General consensus to recommend against this combination?

  16. please please please, ive searched for a video talking about using extender with speed booster for mirrorless camera, in order to reduce the f stop that the extender reduces. can you talk about this option please.
