Vivitar's 1.4x Teleconverter for Canon can add another tool to your camera bag, at a very affordable price. This compact and lightweight 1.4x teleconverter multiplies the focal length of any compatible lens by 1.4--a 100mm lens with this teleconverter attached, for instance, would give you the view of a 140mm lens. This converter is not compatible with EF-S lenses. Autofocus will not work with lenses with a maximum aperture slower than f/4.5. The multi-coating on the converter reduces flare and ghosting, common problems with digital cameras. And, the minimum focusing distance is unchanged. This teleconverter comes with a lifetime warranty.

      Comments about Vivitar 1.4x Teleconverter for Canon:

      This teleconverter works wonderfully well with my Canon Rebel. I can take shots with the auto focus in the sports mode and they come out clear. I am taking it on my birding trip in two weeks and am looking forward to getting some great pictures!

      Comments about Vivitar 1.4x Teleconverter for Canon:

      I have a Canon 100-400mm and its F/4.5 - 5.6. The Canon Extenders are only for lenses 4.0 and greater, so the Vivitar 1.4 converter, with its requirement of a maximum aperture of at least 4.5, could work for me. But its not that great. The camera continues to hunt for focus in average light, unless you are at 100mm (on this lens) where it has f/4.5. But even in optimal conditions focus is slow and often inaccurate. Chromatic aberration is slight, but is still an issue.

      Loss of Sharpness / Inaccurate Focus

      Comments about Vivitar 1.4x Teleconverter for Canon:

      If you are going out to shoot something, like birds, because you want to be able to prove you saw something or just to document things, its adequate. If you are hoping to get good shots you'd like to frame, the focus is not as accurate as it should be. In average to poor light you get nothing, but searching from the autofocus.

      BUT, I found that focusing using live view is much better than focusing through the viewfinder.

      I'm shooting with the Canon 100-400mm L f/4.5 - 5.6.

      This teleconverter has its uses and also is very inexpensive.

      Converter will work with my 4-5.6 lens. You must have good light. It will not focus if you have low light. Worked as hoped it would. Good inexpensive option. Good value for $.
