    Just got Kenko x1.4 Pro Extender over weekend.

    All my Canon lens fit perfectly to 30D - no rattling, no problems with fit.

    The Kenko seem to be a little loose. When attached to 30D, I can wiggle it a little (very little). With 70-200 attached, I can feel a small (very small) wiggle when I change distance. Not much wiggle, but distracting when I'm used to perfect fit of Canon's own lens.

    For close to $200 and a "Pro" version, I was expecting something with a better fit. Is this normal for Kenko product?

    Extender worked well with my 70-200. Would like to know if I got a lemon and should get it exchanged.

    Thanks.

    you mean the kenko rotates a tiny bit when you turn the ring on the lens?

    i can do that even with some of my L-lenses without a TC. With a TC (actually also Kenko in my case), the wiggling increases a bit (about twice, since now you have two mounts instead of one).

    unless it affects image quality or unless it is a very lose mounting, it sounds ok to me. But it is hard to tell unless I can feel it myself.

    Yes. It turns a little bit (very minor).

    I do not have same "wiggle" with any Canon lens - not even "non-L".

    No problems with connection or lens focusing and such.
