I have a EF 70-200 F/2.8 IS lens and a canon 5D Mark IV. I'm planning to upgrade to an R6. I will sell the 5D.
I will purchase the EF to RF adapter so that I can use the 70-200 mm lens and other EF lenses that I own on the R6.
All that's good, but I will be going to safari in Kenya in a few months and to extend the reach of the lens I'll need a 2X Extender.
I know the Canon EF 2X Extender is compatible with the EF 70-200. However I'm not sure if the setup outlined below even works.
Note: "→" means "mounted on"
EF 70-200 → EF 2X → EF to RF adapter → R6 camera
On paper this works, but will I face auto focus issues? I know I'll lose 2 stops of speed and some image quality. I can't afford the 100-400 mm glass (either the RF or EF versions). Anyone else tried this set-up and had any issues?
I guess I could hold off on selling the 5D until after the Kenya trip and use the 5D with the 2X Extender on the 70-200. The R6 could be the backup camera with a 24-105 f4 lens for landscapes and for shots of animals that get too close for the extended 70-200.
But ideally I want to sell the 5D before going to Kenya as it will defray the cost of the trip.
