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.



Photography ~ The Moon [before dark], Fayetteville, NC–400mm Super Telephoto, + Extender EF 2X III = 800mm, 08/04

I’ve not captured the moon like this before. Bring on a lunar eclipse…

Photography ~ A 400mm Sunrise–with some clouds, 07/19

Sunrises are always more beautiful with some clouds

This will do it [for sunrises] until I receive my solar filter.
