According to reports, Canon is working on a new type of teleconverter that it plans to release alongside the rumoured RF 200-500mm f/4 L IS. The announcement is currently rumoured to be coming at some point near the end of this year or early 2024. Teleconverters aren’t new to Canon – or just about any other manufacturer – but what makes this one different is that it appears to have some kind of “zoom” ability.
A Canon Rumours post says the new Canon teleconverter will be adjustable between 1.0x, 1.4x (or maybe 1.5x, but I think 1.4x is more likely) and 2.0x magnification. It means that you won’t need to keep remove or swap out teleconverters to go between your normal lens focal length range, 2.0x the range, or a stop in between.
