Useful

  • Summary: I love this little device as a great addon for my lenses. It is a quick and easy way to extend the range. If you can't afford a fast long lens this might be the item for you. It doubles your zoom capability. If you accept that capability comes with a set of gains and losses that are to be expected then you should be satisfied with your results. I find the Kenko better then a Tameron 1.7 I had been loaned by a friend.

  • Excerpt: I use this lens with a Canon 70-300mm lens.The Kenko gives automatic focusing up to about 200mm,but from there to 300mm it does not.One must focus manually in this region-which is no big problem.The teleconverter is well made and has the look of qualityI would recommend it.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Rugged, Strong Construction

Works fine on D700

  • Excerpt: I mostly use with prime lenses from 85 to 300 mm Nikon. Results are sharp with a lens that is sharp to begin with. A surprise was how useful it can be with a 105 mm macro lens. Nice.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Performs As Expected
  • Cons: Response Depends On Lens

Great product in manual focus. Good image quality. I would recommend it.

  • Summary: I use this teleconverter with my Nikkor 55-300mm/f4.5-5.6G lens and a D5100 and it works great in manual focus. Don't expect to use AutoFocus with this lens. Image quality is quite good and you can take great shots even with no tripod if you are careful. I think this teleconverter is a great alternative solution for waiting to have money to buy a more powerful zoom lens.

Kenko Teleplus Pro 300 DGX AF 2x

Dantrucks, Adorama
6 June 2012
  • Excerpt: I have excellent results with this converter using my Nikon 300 f4 lens, even hand held most of the time. I shoot with a Nikon D3s so I do push the ISO up to keep my shutter speeds over 600. Technique is key with this combo. It doesn't work with my 80-400 over 300mm zoom. The auto focus gets confused on what you're trying to focus on and it also gets to distorted.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus
  • Cons: Weak Casing

  • Excerpt: Bought this product to use with a Canon 70-300DO lens for protability in the field. It works well so far and I have tested it on other lenses including 28-135. It AF at all ranges and all the lenses tested. Also on several Canon camera bodies from Pro to a 30D. Images do not show any degradation.Early in the game but am very satisfied.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight

Works as expected

  • Summary: I am using this with a Nikon 80-200 F2.8 AF-D which makes the lens a 160-400 F5.6 and I have no complaints. I wish Nikon had and auto focus teleconverter that fits this lens, but all their new teleconverters are for AF-S lenses.
