Canon EF 2X II Extender Telephoto

The Canon EF 2x II is an affordable way to extend your focal length. It mounts between the body of your camera and the your actual lens. It increase your focal length by 2x which is good! But apparently it decreases its effective aperture by two stops. So if you have a Canon EF 70-200mm f/4.0 L Lens mounted over a 2x becomes a 140-400mm f/8 lens. At first I was thinking yeah extended focal length bummer about the aperture. But the reviews  are still good on the trade off for the price.

See for yourself check out the reviews at Amazon priced at $305.97 and NewEgg.com $309.00 + $5.99 shipping (there are some shipping stipulations with that so you might want to read the fine trip, but remember you should always read the fine print before you buy!

Here is the Official Product Description:

This extender has been re-designed optically and offers excellent performance with compatible EF lenses (same as the Extender EF 1.4x II). It features a new seven-element design, and same weather-resistant design and anti-reflection internal construction as the new EF 1.4x II. The EF 2x II doubles the focal length of any lens it’s mounted to, and reduces its effective aperture by two stops. With the EF 2x II, AF is possible with any EOS body if the lens has an f/2.8 or faster maximum aperture, and compatible Image Stabilization lenses maintain the IS feature when used with any current EOS camera.
