The shoot


Photography ~ Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L USM Telephoto Lens + EF 2X III & CamRanger, 09/25

Amazing clarity–even with the 2X Extender. This combination gives a focal length of 800mm.

Some say pictures taken with a 2X Extender are not sharp. I’m pleased!_MG_2050.CR2

Photography ~ Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L USM Telephoto Lens + EF 2X III & CamRanger, 09/24

The 2X III is a lens extender = 800mm

Although good close-ups, I can discern some lessening of sharpness in these pics as compared to the pictures I took earlier today @ 400mm [no extender being used]. The lack of bright sunlight is also a factor–skies are very overcast. The lighting is all ambient.

I think there are shots, other than lunar [some stacked and sharpened] and solar photographs where an extender is useful–particularly as compared to the cost of an 800mm prime lens. Anyway, here you have some of my pics for comparison.
