This tele extender can be used with fixed focal length lenses 135mm and longer (except the 135mm f/2.8 Softfocus lens), and the EF 70-200 f/2.8L, 70-200 f/2.8L IS, 70-200 f/4.0L, and 100-400 IS zoom lenses. Superb optically, it preserves the image quality of the lens it's mounted to and multiplies its focal length 1.4x. Effective aperture is reduced by one f-stop; autofocus is possible on any EOS camera when combined with a lens having an f/4 or faster maximum aperture. The new version II maintains the out

I bought this together with my first L lens (a 70-200 f4 L IS) and am very impressed. I have it hooked up to a canon 400D so even without the extender the 70-200 lens gives me up to 320mm focal length due to the crop factor - a very useful level of magnification. With the extender I get up to 448mm of focal length!!
I can't see any change in image quality in using the extender - with my 70-200 the images are so sharp and the colours and amazing with or without the extender. I can't tell the difference yet I gain a great deal of extra reach in terms of focal length.
Build quality is very high, along similar lines to the other L telephoto lenses with its white exterior and weather sealing.
Using the extender will mean your lens effectively becomes slower. So for my 70-200 F4 the maximum aperture with the extender is f5.6. A minor drawback for such a useful gadget. If you have an IS lens you won't even notice this.
Comes with mini lens pouch.
Very highly recommended.
I use it with a Canon 400D and a Canon 70-200 F4L, so it extends the range to 280 at F5.6, which isn't bad at all. You can't really tell there's extra glass in the way either, which is impressive especially given how good the Canon L lens is.
The only problem is that without an image stabilised lens, it is pushing the ability to take a steady shot hand-held, especially if you are on relatively slow shutter speeds. In mediocre light I sometimes find that sports photos are better taken without the extender and then cropped rather than with the extender. It isn't a problem in good light or if you are using a rest. The real answer, of course is to get an IS lens. Speaking of which - not all lens fit the extender - you need to check first that whatever lens you have does work with it.
Attach it to a 300 f/2.8 or a 70-200 f/2.8 and you don't really loose much, if anything, especially on a tripod. If you want added reach on something large and expensive like Canon's range of super telephoto lenses, this is a cheap way of not having to spend a couple of grand more on more expensive glass. On my 300 f/2.8 it makes it a 420mm f/4, which as I said on a tripod, has virtually no noticeable loss in apparent sharpness, and not much in aperture to boot. It weighs virtually nothing as well, meaning you simply won't notice it added to your camera bag.
The extender performs very well in conjunction with the reasonably priced Canon 400mm f5.6 L lens. Generally, at least some support is desirable for the best results. As is well documented, this lens is very portable and virtually a must have for the photography of birds and wildlife with or without the extender.
Obviously, the extender/lens combination will not match a very expensive super telephoto Canon lens but I think it will be more than good enough for the majority of photographers.
For reference, I attach a squirrell photograph using the extender and 400mm lens mentioned above shot at 1/250, f8 & ISO800. with support.
The added 200 mm focal length it gave when added to my 500mm telephoto comes in very
useful when photographing birds and small mammals. It's build quality is excellent there is no
searching when autofocusing. An relatively inexpensive way of increasing the focal length of a
