Sony FE 2x Teleconverter Reviews

Slows down focus

By Devon
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-06-22

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.

Exceptional, within reasonable expectations.

If you accept that these aren't for making really far away things closer, but rather making reasonably close things frame filling, then its a fantastic bit of kit. If it's too far to get a clean shot of with the 600mm straight out, this won't magically make that possible. Atmospheric interference, stray light, micro tremors... yeah, turning your rig into a telescope with a camera on it isn't optimal for long long distance. But if you're in that good range for the 600 and just want the subject bigger? Insanely good. Negligible IQ loss which is more than compensated for by the reduction, if not elimination, of cropping. On the 100-400, it is just pure magic all around. Yes, it makes it an f11, but... you have an 800 mil lens in a shockingly compact form. Just keep expectations where they should be and this won't disappoint.

Still getting use to it.

My use scenario is on a Monopod since much of my bird photography is not particularly sedentary. This means that, in this even at the short end of the 28 - 200mm f2.8; you need practice. I can live with the f5.6 aperture. Using Auto-focus and tracking is pretty much a requirement. It is producing the results that I expected. For landscape vistas, it works great.

Very pleased with the image quality. Wide open isn't very sharp but one stop down is. The camera operator on the show I'm on said they have to do the same with the Zeiss lenses they use.

Amazing Lens

Very small and sweet. Comes in an awesome, cute little case. Works perfectly, and looks nice. I use it on my 200-600mm lens and now my zoom is insanely good. Highly recommend

Happy w/ Sony and B&H

I haven't had enough time with this teleconverter to do an in depth review, but I will say that I bought this item to fit to a 200-600mm telephoto lens SEL200600G and they work together, although I seem to lose a good amount of light. I bought it for reach, and I'm happy with it so far. Just need a little more time with it. It seems a great addition to keep in your set up as you upgrade. . I'd mostly like to review this company B&H and attest to the excellent service. They get an A . Incredible shipment speed. An in stock notification was emailed to me at a more than reasonable amount of time, and the online order was easy. Item shipped and received, what seemed, very well ahead of schedule. Happy with my purchase and B&H.

2X and 1.4X SONY teleconverters very limited

By Jonathon
Rated 3 out of 5
Date: 2022-06-10

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.

Does not work with non sony lenses

Sony won't license to Sigma use of the e-mount to make their teleconverters which I assumed was to not detract from their sales but turns out that this teleconverter refuses to allow anything but manual focus on Sigma lenses

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.

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.
