Get some extra versatility from your telephoto L-Series lens with this precision-designed 1.4X extender. Your 300mm lens, for example, will gain 40% more reach, with a resulting focal length of 420mm (on full-frame cameras) or 672mm (on APS-C sensor cameras) once this extender has been placed in the light path. And it will only give up one stop of light sensitivity in the process. It's like getting two lenses out of your kit bag when this extender is standing at the ready.

A built-in microcomputer facilitates communication between lens, extender, and camera body, and provides fully integrated exposure and focus control on many Canon lenses. Not all lenses will be fully compatible though, so you should check your manuals and the Canon website to make sure of your lens's compatibility with this extender.

Fluorine coatings on the extender's optical elements will keep soils, smearing and fingerprints to a minimum. And it features rugged dustproof and water-resistant construction.

Product Highlights:

  • increases focal length by 1.4X on select Canon L-series telephoto lenses
    • example: a 300mm prime lens will have its reach extended to 420mm while only losing one stop of sensitivity
    • multiply your lens's focal length by 1.4 to see the resulting focal length when this lens is placed in-line on a full frame camera
    • then multiply that result by 1.6 to see your effective focal length on Canon APS-C cameras
  • rugged dustproof and water-resistant construction
  • on-board microcomputer regulates communication between camera, extender, and lens
  • 7 elements in 3 groups
  • only compatible with select L-Series lenses; not all automatic functions will be accessible on all lenses, consult manuals and Canon's website for compatibility info
  • 2-7/8" (diameter) x 1-5/8" (length)
  • 7.9 ounces
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

Awesome for that extra reach

Written By Noah, Massachusetts on Sunday, November 01, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I can't compare this extender to its predecessor but paired with the Canon 7D Mark II and the new 100-400mm 4.5-6.3 IS II, it does an awesome job. It retains autofocus on the center focal point, as advertised, and produces sharp images even at 400mm in moderate lighting conditions.

Pros: Great focusing for an extender Sharp images Compact

Great Product; Expensive

Written By SteveR, New York on Wednesday, April 29, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a great product. The photos are sharp and focusing remains quick and accurate (assuming lens compatibility). However, the final cost of additional reach is quite expensive and perhaps not worth the hefty price tag to gain that extra zoom unless it's exactly what you need.

Pros: quick, sharp focus, small, portable

Cons: expensive for the total value that it brings
