Canon 2x teleconverterSince switching all my camera bodies to full frame last year, I’ve been using Canon’s 2x mkIII teleconverters much more frequently now. In the past the mkII version wasn’t the greatest as far as sharpness was concerned, but with the improvements made to the newer version, I’ve been nothing but impressed.

I frequently pair it with my 500mm and 300mm lenses and sharpness, contrast, and speed have  not only been acceptable, but very good.

For this shot of the pronghorns taken in central Montana, I paired it with my 500mm giving me a 1000mm to help fill the frame. I rarely leave home these days without this converter being in my bag.

    Nothing beats Vancouver in the summer (when it isn’t riniang On the weekend we walked down from our townhouse to the old tram car, which runs about 5 minutes to Granville Island, then we took a shuttle ferry about 5 minutes to Science World, where we enjoyed the Dragonboat races and multicultural music festival. Then we walked back home, stopping at Mario’s Gelati for a little ice cream. In the summertime there is always a festival somewhere and they are always accessible by walking, riding, or other mass transit options (that are more fun than a regular bus). And the added bonus? The kids love not having to get strapped in a car seat and held captive for hours.

    That’s cleared my thoughts. Thanks for contributing.
