    To be used with 70-200 2.8 IS

    I know that it slows down the AF, would it be to slow for dancing shots?

    I use a 1.4 here and there. I've got some great shots with it on my 70-200 2.8 IS

    I used to try to use the 1.4 and 2.0 on my long Canon lenses and never liked what I got. I never used the 2.0 for anything real and rarely used the 1.4 unless I had no other choice.

    You can get away with the 1.4, but I'd stay away from the 2.0 and use the 1.4 sparingly.
