    Default Seeking advice from EOS users

    Hi all,

    I was wondering can i use or which should i use any 1.4x tele converter lens for my Canon EOS 10D to be use on a normal Canon EF 28~105mm f3.5-4 USM MK II lens? Hope to hear from you guys soon, thanks in advance

    Cheers to all,
    Henry

    not recommended...

    the AF may fail due to the change in effective aperture to f/4.5-6.7

    Teleconvertors are optimised for longer telephotos. You might not be too happy with the results, and the teleconvertor might not actually fit well on your 28-105. Not to sure about Canon, but for Nikon, certain lenses' rear element, when zooming or focussing, would hit the teleconvertor. You can try...

    i find the lens soft enough on its own without any help. i wont recomend doing it...

    if u need a 70 200 range... just get an old 70-210 (3.5-4.5 oso!) its known to be the "other half" to this polycarbonate 28-105, i believe a travel series by canon?
    the 100-300 oso. looks exactly like the 70 210 just that its slower.

    IMHO, the price of a telecon cld get u one of the above 2nd hand. and a price of an original canon telecon wld of cos get u more.

    Well, I got a 2x tc but no happy with the result thus got a 100-400 L IS USM too to meet my zoom needs. On my 10D it become 640mm

    A kenko pro 300 1.4x will fit, so will some other cheaper teles but there would be some degradation of image quality.

    Should be around $300 to $320. The Camera Workshop should have it.

    actually, if you want the range, go for the sigma 70-300 f4-5.6 APO Macro Super II. costs ~$340 and will work better than the 28-105+1.4x tele.
