I am an amateur photographer that shoots high school sports ...

  • Summary: I am an amateur photographer that shoots high school sports for our local high school. I wanted a fix aperture lens but found that it limited my distance to do so. I purchased this in hopes of getting some of that distance back. There is no quality degradation when using this with your lens.

No noticeable degradation in IQ unless you pixel peep and even then it's pretty negligible.

  • Summary: Works exactly as it should with the Minolta 200mm APO. No noticeable degradation in IQ unless you pixel peep and even then it's pretty negligible.

Pricey, but this is the real deal

  • Summary: I use this TC with a Minolta 400/4.5 HS APO coupled with my Sony A77ii & a99 bodies. I honesty don't see any degradation in image sharpness and AF function is retained when used with this lens.

Does not work on my G series lenses

Christopher Brown "cdbrow1", Amazon
19 November 2014
  • Summary: I was told before I bought this that it would not work on non-G series lenses, in 20 years of using Minolta hardware I have never encountered this so I was skeptical - but I can confirm it is true. None of my Minolta or Sony "non-G" lenses will work with this T/C.

One of my first photos using Sony's 1.4X TC

davethehiker2, Sony
22 February 2014
  • Summary: I have owned the Sony 300mm f/2.8 G lens for a long time. I also had the Sony 2X TC but had mixed feelings about the results I was getting. The 2X caused loss of contrast and in low light my A900 would have difficulty finding auto-focus.

No downside other than the expected loss of 1 f-stop.

David De Bar, Amazon
20 February 2014
  • Summary: I use this TC on my Sony 300mm f/2.8 lens mounted on an A900 camera. I bought the 300mm lens at a good price from a photographer who needed to raise money quickly. I bought her Sony 2X teleconverter at the same time. I loved the 300m lens but was consistently disappointed when I used the 2X TC.

Very good product

N.C., B&H Photo
21 October 2013
  • Excerpt: I use the Sony 1.4x with Minolta 200mm 2.8 HS APO G and A900. I don't see optical quality degrade much, only a little lower contrast at wide open, but it is still fully useable. Stop down a little to f/4.5 regain most the contrast back. The pictures look about the same compare to Sigma 100-300mm 4.
