Summary: I purchased this 1.4x extension to go with my 2x extension. I found that at times the 2x is a bit much. I took this teleconverter out for a test drive yesterday and got some great shots of newly opening onion flowers. When coupled with my 150mm macro lens the photos are remarkable.
Summary: I tried this with a Sigma 150-500mm on a Nikon D7100 DX and a D800 FX. Yes, you will get 40% magnification but the loss of image quality was higher. I could crop in post processing and get better detail without the TC 1.4 than with it.
Summary: Just buy the 2x and don't waste your time, unless you have a specific need for just 1.4, such as needing more light that the 2x does not afford. I bought this to use on my Sigma 150-500, as the 2x doesn't allow enough light for the auto focus to work..
