With the Kenko Teleplus PRO 300 DGX 2x AF Teleconverter full autofocus (AF) functioning is possible with lenses having a maximum aperture of f/2.8 or brighter.

The Teleplus PRO 300 has genuine Gate Array IC, which means that not only the converter's own data but all data sent from the camera body provide full exposure metering and electronic flash photography.

      Good Extender

      I use this extender with my Canon 7D and a 70-200mm f/2.8 lens to take pictures of wildlife. It is a inexpensive alternative for extending the focal length.

      Know what you are buying. You loose 2 f stops. Focus is center only. I find the IQ is better than cropping and enlarging a 200mm photo. If you don't have the $ for a super telephoto you can still take some nice shots.

      I give it 4 stars because the IQ is not the same as the 70-200 without it. But you be the judge.

      I am a student in both film and photography. When it comes to photography, my main focus is on sports. I primarily shoot college Softball and Baseball games.

      As a sports photographer, you are always looking for the right lens with plenty of reach to get the shots you need. As a student, a teleconverter is a cheaper solution to buying a 400mm or higher prime lens.

      One Shot at a Time:
      The camera I use is the Canon T3i, and I use the Tamron 70-200 f/2.8 Di VC USD lens. When taking one shot at a time, the converter works beautifully! It gives me plenty of reach, has autofocus capabilities, and converts all my data in camera.

      This means that when I take a picture at 200mm with the converter attached, the metadata will say I am shooting at 400mm. Very handy! The same goes for all settings.

      The apeture is stopped down to f/5.6 with the converter attached, but for sports this is never a big issue. Especially when most game take place during the day or in well lite stadiums.

      The autofocus can miss at time, but most of the time it is spot on. I am often forced to shoot through fenses, so the fences could throw off my autofocus.

      Burst Mode:
      This converter DOES NOT work in burst mode with the Tamron 70-200 f/2.8 Di VC USD! When I try to use burst mode with this lens and the converter, my camera has communication errors and I am forced to turn my camera off and then back on.

      The closest I can get to a burst mode is by manually pushing the shutter button as fast as I can, which does hurt your burst fps. The T3i only has a 3 fps burst mode, so I am use to a slow burst.

      This glitch DOES NOT damage the camera or the lens. Both work as they should when the converter is not attached.

      The glitch only comes into play with the Tamron 70-200 f/2.8 Di VC USD. All my other lenses work in burst mode with the converter attached. This is the second copy I have recieved of the converter, so I know it is a glitch and not a faulty converter build.

      Conclusion:
      The way I see it, having the converter essentially gives me two lenses when shooting sports. I have my Tamron 70-200 f/2.8 Di VC USD and then a 140-400mm f/5.6 with the converter attached. This gives me great ability and freedom to take pictures. This converter will also work with any lens (above 50mm) which allows me to use any of my other lenses too.

      The quality is great, and autofocus works well. Just remember the limitation when it comes to burst mode. If you know your limitations, then you can find ways to over come them!

        I use this with a Canon 200mm F2.8. It's a great option to get that extra reach without the high price tag of a longer lens.

        It's good quality and so far extremely pleased with it's performance.

        No cons to list at this time.

          Just Trying out my new Kenko 2x TELEPLUS PRO 300 with my Canon 2.8 L 70-200mm lens. Took this photo while sitting at my dining room table through a dirty screen and window, not too bad so far, very easy to use and so happy to get the extra focal length and such a bargain price compared to the Canon counterpart.

            It is a 2x extender and as a result you do lose 2 stops of light. as a result of that you lost AF using the built in sensors. However, AF still works in bright light and if you shoot with the shutter up (Screen) and not the view finder (Uses the CMOS sensor vs phase detection).I sent it back because it just was not what I wanted but I still think it is a good product for the price.

                    This product was purchased for a Canon 50D with 70-300mm f4.5-5.6. The first one I received produced very blurry photos, like looking through binoculars while looking through a car windshield, so I returned it thinking it was defective. Indeed, in backyard tests, photos taken without the Kenko Teleconverter and cropped to the same size as photos taken with the teleconverter were more focused. The second teleconverter produced very similar results, although it did appear to produce slightly clearer results. In my backyard testing I used only manual focus both with and without the teleconverter, using a tripod and focusing on a stationary object, so autofocus wasn't a factor in the quality of photos. Perhaps a third unit would have worked well but in general I feel the product would be unreliable, so I returned it for a refund. Also, the product advertises you will lose 2 f-stops. Both units I received pinched the aperture down 4 f-stops, constricting light even more.

                      I use it on a Tamron 70-300, which becomes at the long end an f/11 lens. Camera (7D) does attempt to autofocus, but makes a hash job of it. I consider it manual focus only. Chromatic abberation is very pronounced, sharpness is surprisingly good. In the end, I need pixels on target and I don't need a 600mm often enough to justify buying a separate lens. This does the job.

                          I bought this teleconverter to use with a Canon EF 70-300 IS f4-5.6 lens. I find the teleconverter works as advertised. The auto focus works up to about 200mm on the lens giving 400mm overall. At that point the light entering the lens is not enough to allow the auto focus to work and I have to switch to manual focus. The Is on the lens continues to work even when I must use manual focus. I am pleased with the sharpness of the resulting pictures. As there are no Canon teleconverters for this lens this is the best option and I am pleased with the product. Yes I would highly recommend this to anyone.

                          Comments about Kenko Teleplus PRO 300 DGX 2x AF Teleconverter:

                          I am a student in both film and photography. When it comes to photography, my main focus is on sports. I primarily shoot college Softball and Baseball games.

                          As a sports photographer, you are always looking for the right lens with plenty of reach to get the shots you need. As a student, a teleconverter is a cheaper solution to buying a 400mm or higher prime lens.

                          One Shot at a Time:
                          The camera I use is the Canon T3i, and I use the Tamron 70-200 f/2.8 Di VC USD lens. When taking one shot at a time, the converter works beautifully! It gives me plenty of reach, has autofocus capabilities, and converts all my data in camera.

                          This means that when I take a picture at 200mm with the converter attached, the metadata will say I am shooting at 400mm. Very handy! The same goes for all settings.

                          The apeture is stopped down to f/5.6 with the converter attached, but for sports this is never a big issue. Especially when most game take place during the day or in well lite stadiums.

                          The autofocus can miss at time, but most of the time it is spot on. I am often forced to shoot through fenses, so the fences could throw off my autofocus.

                          Burst Mode:
                          This converter DOES NOT work in burst mode with the Tamron 70-200 f/2.8 Di VC USD! When I try to use burst mode with this lens and the converter, my camera has communication errors and I am forced to turn my camera off and then back on.

                          The closest I can get to a burst mode is by manually pushing the shutter button as fast as I can, which does hurt your burst fps. The T3i only has a 3 fps burst mode, so I am use to a slow burst.

                          This glitch DOES NOT damage the camera or the lens. Both work as they should when the converter is not attached.

                          The glitch only comes into play with the Tamron 70-200 f/2.8 Di VC USD. All my other lenses work in burst mode with the converter attached. This is the second copy I have recieved of the converter, so I know it is a glitch and not a faulty converter build.

                          Conclusion:
                          The way I see it, having the converter essentially gives me two lenses when shooting sports. I have my Tamron 70-200 f/2.8 Di VC USD and then a 140-400mm f/5.6 with the converter attached. This gives me great ability and freedom to take pictures. This converter will also work with any lens (above 50mm) which allows me to use any of my other lenses too.

                          The quality is great, and autofocus works well. Just remember the limitation when it comes to burst mode. If you know your limitations, then you can find ways to over come them!

                            I have used this teleconverter for both macro shots and to double the focal length of telephoto lenses with good results on both. Haven't tried the Canon teleconverters, but for the money, they can't touch this product.

                              ...but definitely did not work for action imaging. Sports action shots were not sharp when coupled with a Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 lens. Focus was hard to achieve and sharpness just was not there. Was worth trying to save some money, but in the end I did go with a super telephoto prime.

                              First time user and I'm hooked. Now I see why landscape and nature photographers loves these. Used it with my Canon 75-300 on auto focus didn't work (most probably because aperture) until I switched to manual (much prefer manual anyways more creativity).
