    As some people on this forum are always saying how bad teleconverters are, I keep reading posts saying "lots of distortion, lack of contrast and really bag image quality" I thought I'd post a thread full of really bad quality shots taken with my Canon 2x extender

    CLICK IMAGE FOR REALLY BAD QUALITY SHOTS SUFFERING FROM DISTORTION, LACK OF CONTRAST AND JUST BAD QUALITY.

    In case you haven't noticed, I'm fed up with reading posts saying tele-converter are nothing but a waste of money. Rant over.

    Can we diss on the 1.4x converter still? Just kidding :)

    Actually I'm glad to see these nice shots as I have been considering try one one, thanks.

    The only thing I can see wrong with any of these is the dodgey wet brown things in the last 2 shots......

    Well, I guess I'm going against the weight of opinion, but I think the pics are lovely!! (Poo on the naysayers)

    Edit: oh, and I agree with Hoppy.

    My 2x converter is pretty cool and doesn't mangle up images I hope to trade it in for a pretty white canon one in the not to distant future though :lol:

    jeez finally someone speaks up for extension tubes and tele-converters!

    yeah there are bad tele's out there . . . just like there are bad lenses.
    that doesn't mean there aren't good ones though.


    extension tubes. . . whats the argument people give for lost quality on that?
