great product

N.C., B&H Photo

  • 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. At that setting it would match the optical performance of my Sigma 400mm 5.6 TELE-MACRO APO, and clearly better than the Tokina 400mm 5.6 SD and Minolta 100-400mm 4.5-6.7 APO. The teleconverter does slow down the AF a lot.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Slow Focus

Item returned. Doesn't work with the lenses that I have for dSLR Sony A-SLT-77a.

  • Summary: This and the sister teleconverter SAL-1.4TC will only work on two lenses in the Sony line. The trick is that it will fit the camera, but the lenses won't fit on the converter. The only two(2) lenses that will fit are the SAL70200G and SAL300F28G. If you don't have these lenses don't order these items. They wont fit your lenses. Thats probably why other have had problems with the items.

Just remember Manual focus

  • Summary: This is great when you Just don't have the reach you need. I have read too many bad reviews on this converter. I guess they didnt read Sony Site that says compatibility is Manual Focus only.

Great option for Sony 70-200 G lens!

R. Cox, Amazon
2 May 2012
  • Summary: The teleconverter works great. My photos are as sharp connected to the 70-200 G lens as without it. There is no degradation in quality in my experience. This adds a great option to my kit! I have no reservations recommending it. Naturally, as a longer lens, camera stabilization is important either with a tripod or fast shutter speed.
