Happy

  • Summary: I think it works fine. I am a bit disappointed by the major change to the f stop when using this converter, however, it does give me the ability to change my 300mm to 600mm. For this I am very happy.

great product

21 October 2013
  • Excerpt: The Sony 2x converter works very well with my Minolta 200mm 2.8 HS APO G lens on the A900. Wide open at f/5.6 the pictures are full of detail already but with very low contrast. Stop down slightly to f/6.3 will regain the contrast.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Slow Focus

not worth the money

J. Mayer, Amazon

  • Summary: I had to return the converter as the image quality suffers significantly. I used a tripod and used it handheld with the G series 70-200mm lens. The images were significantly reduced in their quality. I had to return the unit as it was unacceptable or me.
