Which is the best teleconverter for this lens on a Sony A7iii? The 1.4x or the 2.0 x?
Asked by: Rebecca
It is personal preference. With the 1.4x you lose 1 stop of light, with the 2x you lose 2 stops of light. If you don't need anything past 560mm then get the 1.4x. Otherwise you may need the 2x.

using this lens on the a6600 body, which teleconverter would be better for wildlife and nature photography? The 1.4x or the 2x?
Asked by: Cheryl
Both the 1.4x and the 2x teleconverters are fully compatible. The 1.4x would turn the lens into 140-560mm f6.3-8 while the 2x would be 200-800mm f8-11. So while the 1.4x would be better in low light and/or at lower ISO ranges, the 2x would be better for longer focal ranges which could determine whether or not you capture the shot of a skittish animal.

I am going to Africa and want the best telephoto I can find to take photos of animals. I will be in a car for the safari so I won't have a tripod. I have the 70-200mm already. Should I buy this so I can get even closer or will I shake the shots with no tripod?
Asked by: Alicia
This would be a great lens for safari. If you are shooting out of a car, I would recommend getting a shooting bag, click the link below to view; https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/search?Ntt=bean%20bag&N=0&InitialSearch=yes&sts=ma
