Product Highlights
  • 4 Elements
  • For All Nikon DSLRs
  • Doubles Focal Length of Existing Lens

The Vivitar 2x 4-Elements Teleconverter for Nikon cameras is a precision optical component designed to expand your photographic capabilities. This premium quality 2x teleconverter, effectively doubles the focal length of the lens it's used with and maintains the resolution and contrast of any fine optic.The 2x teleconverter 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 300mm lens will effectively increase the focal length to 600mm. A lens set to f/2.8 will now be f/5.6. Autofocus is not always maintained when using a teleconverter especially with slower lenses at apertures above f/4. 

Use with NIKKOR lenses that are f/2.8 or faster is recommended. Because use of a 2x teleconverter incurs a 2-stop light-loss, the camera's autofocus system may not function correctly; manual focus would still be available in this situation. This teleconverter will maintain aperture control, manual/auto/program/etc., with all AF-AFS autofocus NIKKOR lenses.

    I have a Nikon Camera & Many Nikon Lens that I bought from B&H. I used the 2X Teleconverter with the 300mm lens & it made it 600mm with no problem. Now when it gets warmer I will be able to get shots of all the things I bought this for. Very Happy with the service of B&H from start to finish.

    I bought this to use with my new Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 HSM II, but it doesn't focus well. It stays there jumping and does not focus, specially at 200mm, which was what I intended to shoot the most.

    As far as I can see, it works well with Nikon lenses (tried the 50mm) and Tokina as well (tried the 100mm f/2.8), but with this Sigma lens it doesn't, and I bought it specifically for this lens...

            It is a useful accesory, especially if you are not prepared to invest over US[$]n a large telephoto. Definitely the autofocus does not work, so you will need to use manual focus. The first three or four times that you attach it to the lens and camera body it is difficult and you have to apply some force; should not be like this.

              I purchased this based on the reviews posted here. After having a feel of the product i understood that the reviews are either given by novices or photographers who are not serious about what they do. I could not take a single good photograph with my lens 55-300. All the photographs are blurred or shady. Very bad experience, luckily they have a good return policy.

                      this is much more sesitive than any other 2X i've ever used. Focus is very sensitive, not good without a tripod. I intended on using this to photograph wildlife - but you can't unless they are not moving.

                                    This converter prevents the lens from focusing. I have had very little success using it and I am very diappointed so far. I keep hoping it will get better. Not yet.
