    What brand is the teleconvertor? The Canon ones are made to work with a select few Canon lenses. Other brands; Sigma, Tamron etc. should work with any lens of the correct mount.

    Keep in mind that a 2X converter will steal about two stops of light. That will mean that if you use a lens with a smaller max aperture like the one in question...you will most likely loose autofocus.

    My TC is a Canon . Maybe I should save for the Canon 100-400.
