    Default Canon 2x teleconverter wanted...

    Taking a shot here...

    Does anyone want to sell a 2x teleconverter to fit Canon EF/EF-S lenses? Something I can give to my daughter as a sort of "starter" thing to extend her 70-300mm a bit.

    Are you trying to frustrate her? 70-300's won't work very well with a 2x converter attached...
    1996 Patrol 4.2SGL with lots of stuff to make it heavier and thus increase traction?

    Won't work.

    The Canon TC's only work on the white L-lenses.
    Even then, you only typically use it on the 300mm L f/2.8 and the 400mm L f/2.8

    Agreed, Canon won't work, but Third party could, e.g. Sigma - however, one could still have compatibility and IQ issues.

    Unless you have the fast lenses, a 2x tc is more worth as a paper weight.
