Product Highlights
  • For Use with Canon EF Lenses

The Kenko TelePlus MC7 AF 2.0X DGX Teleconverter (also known as a tele-extender) gives you the dramatic effect of doubling the focal length of your lens by 2x, and will cut back the amount of light by 4x (2 f/stops). The MC7 features a 7-element, 4-group design with multi-coated lens elements, and fully automatic diaphragm coupling. With the Kenko TelePlus MC7 DGX your prime lens' depth of field is reduced by 1/2, but retains the prime minimum focusing distance. 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.

The MC7 AF 2.0X DGX converter has genuine Gated Array IC (Integrated Circuitry). This means that not only the converter's own unique data but all data sent from the camera body provides full exposure metering and linkage for electronic flash photography.

Teleconverters are not recommended for lenses wider than 50mm, e.g. 28-105mm. However, full AF operation is only possible with lenses with open aperture of f/2.8 or brighter. Please be aware that AF will work properly only if there is enough light and contrast on the subject to activate the camera's AF sensors. Manual focusing is recommended when using lenses with smaller open f-stop value than those given above.

Note! NOT for use with Canon EOS EF-S lenses

The DGX TelePlus converters have updated circuitry to record exif data more accurately. In the exif exposure data (meta-data recorded with a digital picture) DGX converters record the equivalent aperture and focal length of the lens setting plus teleconverter. Optically and mechanically they are identical to the prior high-quality DG series converters.

          I've used this on my 50d and 6d and it works great on both. Love the added reach, even with the loss of two stops. Not the greatest at focusing in low light, but that's expected. Really good for the price!

            I use it for taking wildlife pictures. Even though I was not expecting for the auto-focus to work, it does most of the time as long as I am shooting outside. It also works on the 100-400 lens even though it was not listed as compatible. I really appreciated the help from your staff in finding the correct extender.

            This TC will work on many of Canons lenses where the over priced Canon TCs will not. Not perfect optics but a good choice if you need one.

                  I have recently purchased this Teleconverter and will be using it on a safari. I have not used a tripod when taking photos. In good light the photos have been quite sharp, despite losing 2 f stops. I have had to bump the ISO high to keep the shutter speed up. Taking photos at dusk has been an issue - there has not been enough light to generate sufficient shutter speed and photos have been blurry. Manual focus is required.

                  I've never used the Canon brand teleconverter, so don't have anything to compare it to, but this one seems to work just fine! My images are still sharp and it's not as bulky as I had anticipated. The only thing that worries me a little bit is that it wiggles slightly on my camera.. not as tight as I'd like it to be.

                      Fantastic results for the money.
                      On a 50D with Canon 70-200 IS II 2.8 USM in the center a minimal reduction of sharpness, in the outer section visible but not bad.
                      Autofocus works without any issues.

                      The Canon 2.0x Mark III is a little bit better in the outer area.
                      The factor of price over perfomance is fantastic.

                      Pictures are too bright, but with exposure compensation by -1 it is the same. Canon Converter doe not do this.

                        I bought this to use with my Canon T2i body and my Sigma 70-200 f2.8 lens. For less than $ it is like I now have a 140-400 f5.6 lens as well! The Auto Focus and Image Stabilization both function correctly. Still seems to focus quicklely and accurately. Lens mounts firmly to converter and converter mounts firmly to body. Very happy with purchase. Shipping was quick to Canada, took 2 days and no supprise charges or fees.

                            With direct comparison to the lens without converter (Canon 70-200 2.8 II IS USM) and compared to the Canon 2.0x MMk III it is a slight reduction of sharpness in the outer area. The Canon is a little bit better outside but in the center I could not really see a difference.

                            Kenko MC4 DGX is worse, center halfway good, outside unusable.

                            Both Kenkos need an exposure correction of -1 for the automatic exposure. Canon does not need that.

                            So MC7 DGX is my choice for a converter.

                            I shot a swim meet using a Canon 300mm lens and the focal point was much closer than I expected. The conditions were partly cloudy and that proved to darken the shots that I took while the sun was behind the clouds. In the bright light this teleconverter was a great asset due to the distance that I was kept from the pool.

                            This is a value buy. As many have mentioned, it beats dishing out hundreds more for a 600mm lens when you have a decent 300mm and want more reach.

                            It clearly states this will not work with a Canon Rebel XT- and it does and doesn't...meaning that ( with bright daylight conditions) , it will shoot sometimes and at others, it won't. I have no scientific explanation. The MC4 1.4x ( see my review) seemed to work nearly all the time. And I'm not talking Autofocus- I'm talking manaul when I say yes and no for the 2.0x shooting certainty.

                            Overall I'm pleased with the sharpness. When it fails to shoot, I turn the camera off and on, and then it works for awhile. I've decided to keep mine. It's still worth the uncertainty. I believe I will miss some bird shots, and then, on the other hand, I will get some I would have missed entirely if I had only a 300 or 450mm (1.4x) lens.

                              I reviewed the MC4 1.4x and included that I exchanged that for the MC7 2.0x. I just wanted the extra power. If I could have kept both I would have. I am thrilled with this, and clearly meets my expectations. It is reasonably sharp and fits my Canon Rebel XT without a problem. It hunts a little more than the 1.4x, and delivers a slightly less contrasty image, but that's a given, and nothing PS can't fix. I think where birds are involved, I'll be switching to manual anyway because of branches and other distracting objects.
                              I use this with the Sigma Ap DGI 70-300mm that runs about 2&change, a far cry from a 600mm for $1K+!

                              I compared prices and specs from several brands for teleconverters and the mc7 2x tele seemed like a bargain over the Nikons high priced tele. and after reading about the autofocusing problem due to the severe loss of light with slower lenses (two stops), I thought that I would most definatly have to use the manual focusing all the time because of the semi slow aperature of my Tokina 80-400mm f4.5 to 5.6 changing that to f11. (very slow)to my surprise in decent light the autofocus works even at f11! so it definitely exceeded my expectations. the quality seems to be exceptional as well, having taken a few shots of far away birds and the big glowing moon (on a tripod of course) some images are a bit soft but I certainly can work with that issue , heading to Alaska for the big test.
