  • Summary: I would recommend this TC only to those who would have the patience to use it properly. Most people would probably be better off with the 1.4x model, which is much easier to use. With a long lens like the Nikon 70-300, the effective focal length can be so great that holding for a sharp image becomes...
  • Pros: Good magnification; works well; adds little or no softness or distortion
  • Cons: A bit difficult to use; does not autofocus on many zoom lenses

  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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.

Kenko Teleplus Pro 300 DGX AF 2x

  • 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.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus
  • Cons: Weak Casing
