Just wanted to get some feedback from people who use these regularly.
I am interested in getting the Angenieux 2x extender for my Optimo Styles.
Obviously 2 stops of light loss is the main Con, but if I were to compare an Optimo Style at 76mm with a 2x extender, T5.6 (Effectively now 152mm), with a 150mm zoom or prime, also at T5.6, would both images have similar depth of field / AOV?
Any other major downsides? In daylight situations I regularly use a .6ND on a mini anyway so the 2 stops of lightloss isn't a big deal vs the flexibility of having a decent long lens option without the footprint...
Also if it softens the image a touch, that could be a bonus in some situations. How noticeable, if at all, is the softening?
Thanks in advance for any advice or experiences.
