    Kenko K-TPHD1.4-C Reviews

    TELEPLUS HD DGX 1.4x Teleconverter for Canon EF/EF-S Lenses is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A niche product with no competitors. I got this to replace my Kenko 300DGX 1.4 TC, which has served me well. Unfortunately, whilst it was happy on the 7D & 6D, it absolutely hated my 7D MkII. So it meant I would have to lash out on something like the Canon 1.4 MkIII TC, which works very well on my 100-400mm lens. What makes this product unique is that it works on EF-s lenses. This is a real biggie for me, as it has finally allowed me to travel light. So instead of having to lug around my favourite 100-400mm all the time, I can pack light if it's not a big event and use the 55-250, bring it out to a 350mm F8 lens, and it will still AF on the original 7D. So I can now carry one TC for all 3 Bodies. And travelling light on flights is a real possibility. That's the good. The pitfalls I can live with, but here they are. The circuitry that fools the lenses on the 7D & 6D to AF @ F8 is great, but unlike the 300DGX and all the Canons etc., it doesn't declare it is there. Sure, it does the math for Lens length, as well as dropping an F-stop, so it will correctly identify that you are shooting the 55-250mm lens @350mm, but as far as MF is concerned, it's the same lens. Which is it's only failing, as the MF moved 11 positions when it is in. So it isn't just a case of putting it on, I have to change the MF manually from -1 (T) to +11 (T) to ensure it's sharp. And remember to set it back when I finish using it. Which is a pain! I found this out when MF'ing the lens with Focal. It really hates it, and runs dead slow telling me the focal length error (350mm on a 250mm Lens), but the lens descriptor still thinks it's the same lens without a TC. If this was addressed, I'd be even happier. So it still worked out the MF setting for me, but I chose not to have it change it, and do it now whenever I need to use it. I have also had it run no problems on the 80D of a friend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extends EF-S STM lenses with little fuss This basic 1.4x teleconverter lives up to expectations. I bought it to expand the reach of my Canon EF-S 55-250mm STM lens while losing only one stop in speed (it would go from f/5.6 to f/8 at 250mm) instead of 2 stops with a 2x extender. And it works -- fits snugly enough on the camera body, matches well in mounting the lens, and, most importantly, enables autofocus for video. Resulting image quality is acceptable.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Is not compatable This tele-converter will not work with my Canon 80D and either one of my Tamron lens, 16-300 or 150-600. Am returning to B&H.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kenko TELEPLUS HD DGX 1.4x Teleconverter for Canon EF/EF-S L Works very well with my Canon 200D and both my Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 II and Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM lens.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well with 55-250 f/4-5.6 STM on XE-1. Well made, snug fit. 4.5 stops of IS on 55-250 STM lets you recover most of the stop of light lost by lower shutter speed. Good for targets that do not move a lot, or in good light. As with all contrast only AF, half press and compose is often needed (or back button focus and compose). With crop plus Kenko reach is equiv. approx 470mm.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Useful and worth the money Sometimes I have to focus my hand, and the auto focus hunts. But the image quality is really quite good and my 250 ml lens now becomes a 350, saving me the hassle of dragging around my larger lenses at least for long-distance photography or things don't move. I do recommend this model.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delivers as advertised Moving to a 5D Mk. 3, my Sigma 14-28mm Wide EF-S was going to have issues with full frame, until I read about people using the Kenko HD DGX 1.4 teleconverter. Wow, it works amazing well and I now keep it on my Sigma lens ready to go.
