Product Highlights
  • 1.4X Teleconverter
  • Multi-coated Lens Elements
  • For Use with Nikon AF Lenses

The TelePlus MC4 AF 1.4X DGX Teleconverter for Nikon by Kenko gives you the dramatic effect of increasing the focal length of your lens by 1.4x. The MC4 features a 4-element, 4-group design with multi-coated lens elements, and fully automatic diaphragm coupling. With the Kenko TelePlus MC4 DGX your prime lens' depth of field is reduced by 1/1.4, but retains the prime minimum focusing distance.

TelePlus converters have genuine Gated Array IC (Integrated Circuitry). This means that signal integrity is maintained between the camera body and lens and autofocus will work properly on lenses with apertures of F/4 or brighter. On lenses with smaller f-stop values, manual focusing may be necessary. The updated circuitry also allows for the exposure meta-data to be recorded by the camera more accurately. 

Note! The TelePlus MC4 AF 1.4X DGX Teleconverter is NOT compatible with Canon EF-S lenses.The Kenko DGX TelePlus converters are not compatible with the Canon Digital Rebel XT/Rebel 350D camera body and will not function on them. All other Canon DSLR cameras bodies work with Kenko DGX converters.

Magnification 1.4x
Lens Elements/Groups 4/4
Lens Coating Digital Multi-coating

    I have used this product on a Nikon D700 with the following lenses: Nikon 70-300mm, Sigma 150-500, Nikon 85mm f:1.8 and Nikon 50mm f:1.8, mostly for wildlife photos. Very small, hardly noticeable deterioration of image quality. Autofocus may become difficult in the long focal lengths since maximum aperture will be higher than f:8, but still works in good light; this is not a problem with the teleconverter but a limitation of the autofocus system. It doesn't seem very strongly built but that is a subjective evaluation. Objectively, once attached with the lens the fitting is a bit loose and some rotation movement is still present; the electronic contacts work well but it makes me wonder how long it will last.

    Bought it to use on my D700, and tested it on my razor sharp 24-120 f4, at about 75mm at f4, with VR on, and with flash. Camera indicated it had achieved focus. Shot the same detailed object with the lens only, at f4 and at about 100mm, both with flash and with VR on. Both shots at 100mm were sharp on the computer monitor- the ones with the Kenko were not really usable at all.
    Shooting wide open with 1.4x should autofocus well.

    I thought Kenko was made by Tamron, and my experience with Tamrons (since 1979)has been that they generally resolve somewhat better than Nikors at 2/3 the price. With my new 16-35VRII, 24-120VRII, and 70-200VRII. I can say Nikors seem to be substantially sharper, but that's another story entirely.

    I returned it the next day, and am awaiting the Tamron replacement. I've been using SLRs since 1962, and Nikons since 1979. I also loved my Tamron extender (non-AF), used throughtout the 80's

                    Small light weight, can easily stick it in your pocket or a corner of camera bag. Currently use on a D5100 with cropped sensor (x1.5). By pairing this with my 50mm f/1.8D, I essentially get a 105 f/2.5 for a fraction of the cost of Nikons 105 f/2.8. By pairing this with my Tamron 18-270, I essentially get a 38-567mm (great for wild life & moon). I love taking this little Kenko to sporting events, because the stadium where I live has a 3 inch max rule on SLR camera lenses. By attaching this little guy to my 50 1.8, I'm still under the 3 inches BUT have a 105 focal distance as opposed to 50.

                    Got this for the occasional wildlife shot that happens infrequently enough that I can't justify carrying a 500mm lens. Haven't tried with all lens/camera combinations but the Kenko is light and attaches solidly with no "looseness" at either connection. Works smoothly with autofocus. Image seems crisp. Unit feels solid and durable.

                            Comments about Kenko TelePlus MC4 AF 1.4X DGX Teleconverter for Nikon:

                            Amateur wildlife photographer needed just a little bit. So much of wildlife photography is fast action. No time to set up the tripos, can not use a 2.0 Teleconverter and hand hold it. So, this 1.4 makes up the difference. With IS still working with the Kenko, hand holding the camera is still possible. Especially when rapid fire is used. There might be some shots that are blurry, but also some that are clear.
