Canon Extender EF 2x III Review
The Canon Extender EF 2x III is a powerful lens that is placed between the Canon EOS Digital SLR and is compatible with Canon L series lenses. It increases the focal length of any lens twice of its capacity under normal circumstances.
What does it do additionally? This extender lens essentially reduces the original lens’ effective aperture by two stops and it is made of 7 elements in 5 groups. It is also known as a resistant to dust and moisture and has anti reflection materials inside the lens barrel alongside coating around the edges at the outside for reducing flares. Extender EF 2x III has dimensions of 71.8 x 57.9mm and weighs only 265g. It is known to be compatible with EOS-IV, IS super telephoto L-series lenses using Canon EF mount. By now you must be wondering about its unique selling proposition.
At the outset we must clear our concept with regard to the application of Canon Extender EF 2x III. It can effectively be used only with a select few lenses and autofocus will work fine only in the event of having the effective aperture within the range of the camera that is currently constrained at f/8 in case of most of the EOS cameras. Carefully placed lens release system virtually makes the mounting of the extender easy and quick, thereby minimizes exposure of the camera and lens to the environment.
Secondly the integrated processor makes sure of availability of the focusing, metering and ID information followed by reduced ghosting and flare through the use of all optical elements and Super Spectra Coating of Canon. Spots left by water, fingerprints or any other external mark can easily be eliminated by virtue of having fluorine coating on the front as well as at the rear elements alias components. This lens in particular puts you a step ahead over others in the matters of withstanding in hardships while shooting such as dust and water as it is known to have been developed as resistant to both dust and water.
The specifications in general of this product is that it’s white in color from the table of Canon that falls in the category of teleconverter, available in lens box and comes handy with a 2 year warranty by the manufacturer. Based on your camera model it may be a good idea to try out this extender lens for at least a test’s sake to know about it and feel the difference physically.
