    Kenko K-TPHD2.0-C reviews

    TELEPLUS HD DGX 2x Teleconverter for Canon EF/EF-S Lenses is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Look & feel of a high quality product with great performance Has the look and feel of a high quality product. I bought the product to work with my Canon T6i and Canon EF-S 55-250mm F/4-5.6 IS STM Telephoto Zoom Lens. I had the expectation of the AF to not working at all. After testing it out it did have some functionally and in some cases worked fine. I suggest following the instructions with teleconvert to achieve best results. I am extremely satisfied with it and would suggest to anyone looking for that extra reach and not afraid to use manual focus to get best results.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Purchase I was excited to find a teleconverter that fit my Canon T6i and after reading the other reviews posted here I knew what to expect from the DXG 2. As an amateur photographer, I was looking for a good quality teleconverter that was reasonably priced. After speaking with the very professional B&H team, I placed the order and received the DXG 2 within days. The instruction guide states that the auto focus may not work in all light conditions, just as most reviews have pointed out so it should not come as a surprise. Well during a mid afternoon shoot, it worked great, auto focus too! I am very happy with the purchase! Thank you B&H!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from It sort of works On a EOS-80D with EF 70-300 F/4-5.6 IS II USM lens, it says cannot communicate with lens, clean contacts. With an older EFS 55-250 IS lens, It works but over exposes. By turning off autofocus, turning off lens correction, and setting the exposure to minus 2 and one third I get acceptable results.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extra reach without spending a lot of money This teleconverter is perfect if you want an extra reach for occasional shootings with a telephoto lens without spend a lot of money on a dedicated lens. Also, will save you from carry a bulk and heavy extra lens in your bag. I use it with a Canon T5i and a EF-S 55-250mm STM lens. The autofocus does not work properly when shooting through the viewfinder but, for me, worked fine in live view mode. I was able to make a very sharp and detailed shot of the moon using this setup and a tripod. Just one minor issue I noticed is that when using live view the exif data in the photo does not show the lens + teleconverter equivalent focal length. If you are thinking on buying this teleconverter, Kenko provides in its website a compatibility check tool that you can consult before buy it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great alternative to the over priced MTF Services I bought this for two purposes. One, to use B4 ENG lenses on a Canon 5D Mark III. With this adapter you will get complete sensor coverage when you engage the doubler. It works the same kind of way as the very expensive MTF Services B4 to EF adapter! The optics are good enough too in this. The other reason was so I can use EF-S lenses as this converter has a recess to allow the larger flange of EF-S lenses to attach properly.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works As Expected This product fits well on my Canon EOS 6D with Tokina 100mm lens and works as expected. It does lessen the from the sharpness, but most of this can be recovered in post processing. I have only used this teleconverter to photograph the sun and moon and have not tested its worthiness on other subjects.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Results and price may be worth the trouble I bought this tele-converter because I sometimes want a 500 mm focal length but am not willing to pay $9,000 for a Canon lens.� There are not many converters for EF-S lenses and Kenko is a reliable name (I also own their extension tubes, and according to Wikipedia Kenko makes lenses under the Tokina name). I used this converter with a Canon 760D and a 55-250 mm lens set at 250mm.� The camera displays (and stores in the photos) the correct information: 500 mm (250mm x 2) and f/11 (5.6 x 2), and the images are quite acceptable.� However, to get reasonable results, I must use this procedure: 1. Set the lens to manual focus (since the final f-stop is over 8.0, the autofocus will hunt for focus forever. 2. Set Exposure Compensation to -2.0 stops (or the auto-exposure will yield extremely washed-out photos) with ? brackets. 3. Set the Drive Mode to Continuous. I then focus manually (not so difficult because I was focusing manually 1978-2008...) and press the release to expose 3 frames.� Depending on the light, one of them will expose correctly. If the lens is set at 55mm and f/4 (converted to 110mm and f/8), then both auto-focus and auto-exposure work fine (manual focusing and exposure compensation are not needed) — but I don’t need the converter to get 110mm focal length... The results may be just about be worth the trouble. But once you set it up, you probably want to stay with it for a while, and not switch back and forth between this setup and “normal mode”. BTW, I complained about the 2.0 stop overexposure and B&H consulted with Kenko and decided that I should get a replacement.� Awfully nice, except that the new converter performed identically.� Nonetheless, I decided to keep it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I have used the Kenko Teleplay HD 2x converter on my Canon with a 55 -250 lens and it performed outstanding. My photos were clear and looked great using this converter.
