Sony FE 2x Teleconverter Reviews

Good for what it does

This works well with the 400mm/2.8 and 600/4.0 primes. Also the 200/2.8 II and 100-400mm, but remember you lose 2 stops of light and you are adding more glass in front of your sensor, so heat distortion, camera shake, wind and other factors will be exaggerated.

Not worth the purchase if using with a Sony 100-400mm lens

Purchased this 2.0 Teleconverter for use with my Sony 100-400mm GM lens expecting great things. Was highly disappointed in the photo's I get with it. Can never get a Sharp image, ALWAYS Blurry. So either I have a defective one, or they just don't do well with the 100-400mm lens. I did however, rent a 200-600 Sony lens and got very good results with it. So if you plan on using it for the 100-400mm, Save your money and don't. Get the 1.4x instead.

Double the focal length, double the fun

This teleconverter is small, sharp, and does not impede the super quick Sony auto focus whatsoever. The perfect way to pack a 400mm without having to pack a 400mm!!

A 600mm lens for $697.00

I'm using a Sony a92 with the 70-200 Mark2 with the 2X. The camera functions that I use are: -Open to f5.6 (f2.8, other settings will work). -APC Mode (Custom button). -I then set another of my custom buttons to the Steady Shot Adjust. to Manual at 600mm By doing that, I can switch between the long lens and my other lenses at the push of a button as I switch lenses. I use small or medium tracking; I'm getting sharp images at the equivalent of 600mm which can still be cropped if necessary. FWIW: I've found that it still focuses pretty well even on Wide or Zone for moving subjects. Combined with setting on Mode 3 on the lens, it does improve the hit ratio a bit more. I personally think that, for me; it's a pretty good investment.

Slows down focus

It's great, but just a word of warning, AF takes longer. It has to hunt a bit more. This applies to the 2X converter (which I bought). I'm not sure if the 1.4X has the same issue.

2X and 1.4X SONY teleconverters very limited

By Jonathon

Bought A7iv with 24-240 lens here and assumed that the teleconverters would give me a 480 tele. Thank heavens I read the Q&A here and used a fine toothed comb on the SONY site where the fine print reveals that the number of lenses compatible with the teleconverters are VERY LIMITED! A SONY rep Emailed me that my 24-240 was compatible which is not true. The lists of compatible lenses is not at all easy to find at SONY where even the compatible lenses are ALL listed with the footnote with some restrictions and none are listed as fully compatible, taking you to a list of compatible camera BODIES so I emphasize that the teleconverters must be compatible with the equipment in front of and behind. Some buyers scratched their lens trying to make the converter work on an incompatible lens. Caveats about the A7iv and SEL24240: very heavy (~3.5 lbs); maybe too sophisticated a camera for one who was previously familiar the A700; caught off guard by the resolution of the A7iv which is not fully appreciated in the Facebook and Instagram world where sensors the size found in phone cameras dominate. Standard enlargement of full frame images there yields fuzzy images whose detail is not appreciated until enlarged.... a lot. I will enjoy my new camera and lens eventually as I become a better photographer. I know, I know, the camera does not make the photographer. I'm staying with SONY and am becoming a smarter consumer.

2X Tele for a more reach.

Had this unit for a couple weeks now and I can say it works as advertised with my new Sony 70x200 ver II. Hoped I could pair it up with my Sigma 100x400 but no such luck. Either way I can tell you the images are pristine and seem to maintain the integrity of the lens.

Poor quality when using A1 and 200-600 lens

By Robert
Rated 2 out of 5
Date: 2022-10-11

The quality of the photos using this 2x converter with the Sony A1 and the 200-600 G lens is poor. I ordered a Sony 1.4 TC and it works fine. I hope Sony issues firmware update to improve the quality of the 2X TC.

Another compatibility question - does it work with a Zeiss batis 135mm 2.8 prime?
Asked by: Mitchel
I’ve never used the Batis, so I can’t give a direct answer. The front of the teleconverter always projects a little more than 1/3 of an inch into the back of whatever lens is attached to it, so unless the Batis has enough room for that projection at all focus settings, the two won’t be physically, mechanically compatible and could damage each other. Optical compatibility is an entirely separate question.

2x converter's doubles lens focal lengths, so your 200mm lens will become a 400mm with a light loss of 2 f/stops.

The teleconverter is compatible with both of the 70-200mm f/2.8 GM lenses. The "G" lens is a 70-200 f/4 which cannot use the teleconverter.
