Canon TC's won't.  Kenko TC's might do it.  I really don't think your image quality would be very good, though.

Why do so many people say "FER-tographer"? Do they take "fertographs"?

You may be able to find an aftermarket TC that works but you're AF won't. You'd need to use manual focus which isn't that easy since there isn't a focusing aid like there was back in the days where all lenses were manual focus.

I think the Kenko TC's will actually AF, or at least your camera will try to.  Check out POTN and they seem to suggest they will allow AF because they don't report the TC to the camera.

 

Still, I don't think I'd be too excited about trying it.
