Good converter, make sure your focus point on your camera is set properly to your lens before using any converter.

  • Summary: This is a pretty sharp image maker. I was impressed. I'm a pro film photographer (for 20 years) and a semi pro digital photographer (for 3 years). I have two Nikon D7000s, and I used this teleconverter with a 70-300 4.5-5.6 G lens. But, know this, I have first adjusted the focus point on the lens onto the digital screen in the camera, so that the max sharpness can be achieved by the camera and lens.

Image quality is pretty good works best with good optics and good light ...

  • Summary: I use this teleconverter with my Nikon lenses on the D800 camera. The autofocus works almost with all lenses even to my surprise with the 28-300mm at full 300mm F5.6 (which becomes F8 with the TC). Image quality is pretty good works best with good optics and good light conditions. There is almost no image degradation with fast lenses like the 85mm F1.8 or the 60mm F2.8 Macro. The focus is a bit slow but it does the job.

Obsolete Part Shipped - Does not Work on Canon 5D MK III

  • Summary: I received a unit that will not autofocus with some of my Canon lenses on my Canon 5D MK III. The unit has a red paint dot on the side (Not the red index dot). Kenko updated the TC some years back and marked the new ones with a blue paint dot. Kenko did not update the model number, and now Amazon has co-mingled stock, some old stock, and possibly some new.

I read lots of reviews and it seemed that this Kenko Pro was quite good for a whole lot less

Frank Mikalauskas, Amazon

  • Summary: I wanted to try a 1.4X converter but did not want to pay the Canon ransom for theirs. I read lots of reviews and it seemed that this Kenko Pro was quite good for a whole lot less. I am quite happy with this teleconverter when mounted on my Canon 70-200mm f2.8L IS II lens. I do own the Canon 2X III teleconverter and it compares favorably in my opinion.

Nice addition expecially for old glass.

  • Summary: I have been pleasantly surprised by this little TC... Used on my old 80 200 f2.8 push/pull and a 300 f4 and all auto functions work fine. Cannot compare sharpness as I don't have a 400 mm prime, but shots are very sharp with a reasonable number of very acceptable prints. One of the perks is EXIF data does show modified info e.g. 420 mm f5.6 (on 300 f4) etc. Two versions of the 1.4 tc... Opted for this due to Hoya glass and data.

Surprised that it works so well !

R. Rollins, Amazon

  • Summary: I have previously used a teleconverter on a Canon film camera years ago with mixed results. Yes it did magnify but didn't have the clarity. I wasn't sure what to expect with this teleconverter on my Nikon D300. I was very surprised that it was sharp and even with the loss of light that you get with all teleconverters the auto focus worked great. It was using it with a Tokina 80 - 400 lens and the auto focus worked fine.
