It is indeed a larval lobster. A bit unusual to see it floating in the soup without riding on something. If you like to see more of these and other unusual larval creatures I suggest contacting Jack's Diving Locker in Kona, HI. They specialize in this sort of thing.

In Topic: New Canon 100mm 2.8L Macro IS potential issue with teleconvertors

Try doing it again but be sure that you attach the teleconverter to the lens and then attach the whole lot to the camera - there are several reports on the web that this makes a big difference.



Sorry this does not make any difference with the 1DsMkII. Do you think this will convince my wife to let me upgrade to a 1DsMKIV? ;-)

"I just tried the lens with Sigma APO 1.4 TC and it works fine without fluttering or noises. Seems the Sigma is actually better quality than the Kenko which sucks cos now I have to buy another set of TC. " by Drew


Based on this post I purchased the Sigma APO 1.4 TC. Unfortunately, when used with a 1DsMkII and the 100mm 2.8L Macro IS, the Autufocus still flutters and has significant issues with locking on. So this is not the answer for those of us using a 1DsMkII. Kenko has recently updated their teleconverters. While not yet available there is a possibility these will work.
