Tamron 2x AF Teleconverter for Nikon

The 2x teleconverter (also known as a tele-extender) will multiply the focal length of the existing lens by 2x, and will cut back the amount of light by 2 f/stops. For example, using a 2x teleconverter with a 300 mm lens will effectively increase the focal length to 600 mm. A lens set to f/2.8 will now be f/5.6.

Teleconverters are not recommended for lenses wider than 50mm, e.g. 28-105mm and full AF operation is only possible with lenses with open aperture of f/2.8 or brighter. Even on lenses at f/2.8, autofocus cannot be guaranteed; manual focusing is recommended when using this teleconverter.

        I use this wirh nikon D3200 and tamron 70-300mm. In good light conditions it works very good, also the autofocus. In the darker situasions, you need to focus manually, and of course it looses two f stops. But a helpful converter to my use.

        sports action, animals, flowers.
        closer shots from farther away.
        some lower light but not a problem on sunny day.
        not good for caves.
        more difficult at dark or near dark.

        Comments about Tamron 2x AF Teleconverter for Nikon:

        This Tele converter has given me the ability to get super close up pictures without spending $1200 on a lens. I am able to use it with the lenses that I have already. I enjoy taking pictures of the roses in my garden. Now I'll be able to really capture the detail up close.

          I use it with Tamron 70-300mm, and it works well. Although, as I expected, sharpness of the picture was little worse. Probably wouldn't see the difference with one of the Nikon telephotos. Overall This is good accessory, If you matter only for focal distance.

            Comments about Tamron 2x AF Teleconverter for Nikon:

            I bought this mostly to use with my 70-300mm f/4-5.6 G lens (which I think is one of the great bargains of the Nikkor lenses) and with my old 500mm Reflex lens "retrieved" from the 1970s. I have been very pleased with the results, particularly in cinema use. Neither of these are IS lenses, of course, so a very sturdy tripod is a must; and the two-stop loss is not so much of an issue with the low shutter speeds of video shooting (where half the time we are trying to cut exposure with ND filters, anyway). Quite nice to now have a 600mm and a 1000mm lens at hand for a reasonable investment.

              The Teleconverter worked perfectly in bringing far objects closer. You can still do automatic as well as manual focusing with the 'Tamron' attached. It is a great lens for the price.

                  Quality product that allows extended function of existing lenses at an affordable price point. I don't intend to use this as an everyday answer to my needs, but as an occasional use is needed I'm willing to swap f/stops for distance. It works exactly as they claim it does.

                  I had purchased a cheaper Teleconverter and was not happy with it at all, never could get a good photo out of it. I purchased this Tamron Teleconverter and it has been great. My lenses I use it on are not fast enough, so I have to do manual focusing, but once I got use to it, have gotten some great shots. I would recommend it to a friend for sure.
