Have always avoided the well-documented limitations associated with Teleconverters, but after researching the results from Sony's technology, I made the decision to take a chance on the 1.4x. I'm happy I did! I've gotten great results in terms of image quality and no particular issues of concern have come to my attention. I can always count on Sony to provide what I need to keep my image creation moving forward.

Very cool!

Love the xtra reach. I know it stops light so just consider your conditions. Don't need to talk about the quality as it is top notch and priced accordingly. The thing I really like is the knowledge that this and the E mount system will be around for a long time and this thing is built as such, for the long haul. Highly recommended.

Great Teleconverter for the Sony 200-600

By Tim

I wanted more reach for sun & moon shots with the 200-600. So I bought this teleconverter soon after the lens. Had them less than a month. So far, very happy. With an APS-C sensor, at 600mm this teleconverter results in 1,260mm, which fills a decent portion of the frame. Relative size is shown in the two uncropped photos. The sun was taken with a Thousand Oaks white light solar filter, showing a few sunspots and some surface detail. The moon was shot on a hazy night. Detail on both are quite good & meet my requirements. I also have more powerful telescopes, tracking mount, and cooled astro cameras for these kind of shots. But I often want a quick photo or timelapse of a moonrise or sunset, without an hour setup. This allows quick, low-hassle- high magnification shooting with great results. 200mm - 1,260mm is quite a range for one lens (full frame vs. APS-C with 1.4tc), particularly with such good image quality. I've included an uncropped moon photo at 600mm with a full-frame sensor, for comparison. Nice for landscape, but rather small for isolated solar or lunar shots. I notice very little, if any, image degradation with the a6600 (APS-C) and a7iii (24MP full frame) sensors when using this teleconverter.

Better than Anticipated!

Based on positive evaluations from others, I reluctantly purchased the FE 1.4x Teleconverter, even though I have not used my Nikon TC 14E or TC 17E for the last 4 years, including three safari trips to Senengeti and Botswana. Based on my testing results using the A1 with both FE 600mm F4 and FE 100-400mm @ 400mm lenses (albeit only at 50' in basement), I definitely will use this TC in the next photo tour. My only possible explanation is that the wider opening of the mirrorless mount system makes a difference.

really practical

For a price comparable to an inexpensive lens I extend the focal range of all my other lenses. It's small and light, a good alternative to carrying additional lenses as long as I can bear the f-number penalty, which is very often.

It's a teleconverter. 1.414x the focal length, 1.414x the f-number, 0.707x the depth of field, a bit over 2x the hyperfocal distance (depends on which definition you pick), lens abberations magnified by 1.414x, etc. I've used it with a Sony SEL200600G (200-600mm f/5.6-6.3 G OSS) lens on an ILCE7RM4 (7rIV) camera. With that lens, the TC is better than the lens and so doesn't reduce sharpness. It *does* magnify lens aberrations, so the (slight) longitudinal chromatic aberration of the lens becomes more noticeable. Note the fringing on the Turkey Vulture image, even after it's been processed by DxO. This is expected, of course. It's not the TC adding aberrations, it's just magnifying what's already there. This is part of the reason the big prime lenses cost so much: they have fewer aberrations to begin with, and so can use these high-quality TCs and get even better image quality.

The adapter is compatible with Sony e-mount bodies but only certain e-mount lenses (e.g., Sony EF GM 100-400, Sony EF GM 70-200 f2.8). Check the Sony website to confirm the extender is compatible with your e-mount lens.

What is the difference between the tele extender and extension tube for bird in flight photography?
Asked by: Ryan
A Teleconverter is used to give a longer focal length. The focal length is multiplied by the Magnification Factor. These typically come in 1.4x or 2x. An Extension tube allows for closer focusing. The purpose of using an Extension tube would be for macro work to magnify objects a short distance away. When using an extension tube, the lens is generally only able to focus close, and cannot focus on things a longer distance away. Simply put: Teleconverters magnify distant objects. Extension tubes magnify close objects.
