The technical details behind this accessory

Given the RF lenses this extender is designed to be compatible with are image stabilised, and the R5 and R6 that are ideal partners to these lenses offer in body stabilisation, many of the traditional hurdles around the use of teleconverters are reduced.
Expand the telephoto range

High-precision AF using the EOS R's Dual Pixel CMOS AF and the lens's built-in IS can also be utilised, making full use of the performance of the master lens to expand the telephoto range. When paired with the EOS R5 or EOS R6 and their in body stabilisation you have a formidable combination.
