Not a review by any means but worth mentioning. I have had a Kenko Pro 300 1.4X TC for a while and believed it to work very well.
There would be some inconsistencies in sharpness and AF speed from time to time. I just purchased the Canon 1.4XII and used it right away. This combo of the Canon 500 F4IS and the 1.4XII are a dream match up.

CANON 7DII, CANON 500 F4IS, CANON 1.4XII, ISO400, 1/1000, F6.3.

Terry, I agree. There appears to be no degradation for the gain in range. I had the exact same experience when I began using Nikon's new 1.4 teleconverter.

Terry, combo is working great for you, and the nice clean BG brings lots of attention to the bird's details and textures - wonderful portrait.

I'd say this Combo is working out great for you Terry. Nice diffused light helped bring out this great detail on this portrait shot.
Thanks for looking,
Michael Ashbee
