This is a thought you might be interested post.

I've been experimenting with stacking the Canon 135 L with 2x Canon (Mark 1) and Kenko Pro 1.4x with reasonably decent results. Thought some of you might be interested in seeing some since I had a good chance today to test this combination on a varmint who nicely posed for me:

135 withoutextenders attached:



With 1.4x



more 1.4x



With Kenko Pro 1.4 and Canon (Mark I) 2x stacked:



and another



This combination has a 491mm reach (if my calculations are correct)with the 1.3x crop of the Mark II. I have no problems with super quick autofocus and the combo gives me an F/4 reading. It's also extremely light.

PS - I'm not using the newer Canon 2x extender but the older version which some claim is better. Personally, I'm relatively happy with the results and am extremely pleased with the Canon 135 performance both with and without extenders.

Here's what it all looks like:

Whoa! Those are really nice crisp pictures with really clear detail.

That's a really cool Idea.

But Normcar,

What's wrong with your dog? :lol:

Could you tell what he was eating?

It looks like some kind of root or tuber.

Your so close I can almost hear the crunching.

Amazing

He was munching on some water plantfrom the bottom of this shallow river. Everything else is frozen but the flowing water and this guy just happened to discover a little rock perch where he chose to eat each time. He'd dip, swim underwater, then rise to the little rock perch. I slowly got closer and closer to him and he didn't seem to mind. Once I'd used uptwo 512 MG cards on him, I wandered away from the rock and he left it too (I guess he just liked the company while it lasted). Cool stuff.
