This is the cheapest this extender has ever been. Normally it's around £370 to £400. For those in the know, this is the only way to extend your focal length cheaply. It doesn't work with all Canon lenses but will work with L's and the shift and tilt lenses. provides a 1.4x magnification with minimal quality loss and sacrifices 1 stop in light.

I own this and use it with a 70-200L and 135L, cracking quality and far cheaper than buying a bigger lens.

I paid a lot more for mine, but never regretted it.

I know it's a lot of money, but if you have a 200mm and need more reach, the cheapest L lens to achieve this will be around £1,000!!! The 300mm F4 is £1,100 and the 100-400 F4-5.6 is £1,200. So it makes £330 look like a bargain.

Photography costs a lot of money, but once you have a decent lens, you never want to give them up.

This is not the 'only way to extend your focal length cheaply', as there's lots of cheaper alternatives like extention tubes etc. Which can also keep the lens' af abilities

Extension Tubes are meant for macro work though as they increase the min focus distance of a lens, but you loose infinity focus or worse. Teleconverters increase focal range but you lose f stops in doing so, introduce softness/degrade image quality (depending on the number and quality of elements being added) and beyond f8 you normally loose autofocus.

As mentioned above, extension tubes don't increase the focal length of a lens... they allow you to focus more closely to objects, but you won't gain any "zoom" by using them.

I have the unfortunate experience being addicted too!

Ah I see. TIL!

Sigma extender can be purchased for significantly less, and performance will be virtually indistinguishable. Appearance may not match on white lenses, but there again, white will look odd on black ones.
