    Default 1.4X teleconverter opinions/suggestions welcomed.

    Hello everyone,

    I am thinking of getting a 1.4X teleconverter for my CANON EF 70-200mm f/4 L. As it is already a f/4 lens, I have scrapped the idea of getting a 2X televeconverter as I will loose 2 stops.

    The CANON 1.4X teleconverter is at about $685. A colleague of mine suggested the SIGMA teleconverter which is going at about $250. There is a big price difference between the two of them. Can I please have opinions, suggestions in order for me to decide which to buy. I am more biased towards the SIGMA teleconverter because of the price. Hence, if the quality of the photos taken with the SIGMA teleconverter is about the same as the CANON's, then the SIGMA will be my buy.

    TIA for all the comments.

    Wow! 1.4X TC at $230! Seems like a good buy. Since KENKO/TELEPLUS is used by a few CS-ers, I think that I will get KENKO/TELEPLUS instead of SIGMA and/or CANON.
    Thanks everyone.
