I have owned the 2x for a while now, which I use with my 70 to 200 mainly to take photos of birds. Up to now it’s been a bit hit and miss. Sometimes the photos are okay, but others are not so good. Very frustrating when you cannot tell what the problem is. This weekend, I went out in Hyde Park in London for the day and as it was so bright, I changed the aperture from to F5 .6 to 7.1 and wow, what a difference. Most of the times I’ve been using the combo it’s been cloudy, overcast days, so I’ve stuck to F5 .6. looking back at the photos at f7.1 there is a huge difference in the sharpness and the keeper rate. Not just for static birds but also for birds in flight. Now I’m not going to say it as good as the lens without the adapter, but it is very, very usable.
