Kenko K2.0PRO300DGX-C overview

  • 1Description

With the Kenko Teleplus PRO 300 DGX 2x AF Teleconverter full autofocus (AF) functioning is possible with lenses having a maximum aperture of f/2.8 or brighter. Having 2x magnification, the Teleplus PRO 300 is constructed from seven multi-coated elements in four groups, allowing a depth of field that is half of the prime lens used and retaining the prime's minimum focusing distance.

The Teleplus PRO 300 has genuine Gate Array IC, which means that not only the converter's own data but all data sent from the camera body provide full exposure metering and electronic flash photography.

Note: Not for Use with EF-S Lenses

    Kenko K2.0PRO300DGX-C reviews

    Teleplus PRO 300 DGX 2x AF Teleconverter is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 42.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Up close(r) and in their face! Before buying the Kenko, a couple of different Canon teleconverters were tried and not certain whether it was my lens (EOS 70 - 200mm), camera body (D5MkII), the devices, or combination and most shot were simply not sharp or as vivid as expected. In contrast, the Kenko with the same lens/body combo has given me better results and trying it on a friend's 400mm it was amazing - like being able to count pinfeathers on waterfowl. Using the f5.6, ISO 100, and shutter speed at 2000 (and on a tripod with rotating head) it worked with all functions set on the camera and lens. Worst part is now I want a bigger lens to use with this televconverter.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well built teleconverter I bought this teleconverter to use with a Canon EF 70-300 IS f4-5.6 lens. I find the teleconverter works as advertised. The auto focus works up to about 200mm on the lens giving 400mm overall. At that point the light entering the lens is not enough to allow the auto focus to work and I have to switch to manual focus. The Is on the lens continues to work even when I must use manual focus. I am pleased with the sharpness of the resulting pictures. As there are no Canon teleconverters for this lens this is the best option and I am pleased with the product. Yes I would highly recommend this to anyone.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Extender I use this extender with my Canon 7D and a 70-200mm f/2.8 lens to take pictures of wildlife. It is a inexpensive alternative for extending the focal length. Know what you are buying. You loose 2 f stops. Focus is center only. I find the IQ is better than cropping and enlarging a 200mm photo. If you don't have the $ for a super telephoto you can still take some nice shots. I give it 4 stars because the IQ is not the same as the 70-200 without it. But you be the judge. See image.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works, but image quality suffers I bought this teleconverter to give me more reach when trying to shoot birds in flight. I am using it with a Canon 60D and EF 200 F2.8L. So far, I have used this teleconverter a handful of times to take pictures of ducks in water in good light. The autofocus works okay, but the images are not as sharp as I would like and I think that I might be better off with just using the EF 200 2.8L and heavier cropping on the 18.0 MP camera. I think the autofocus with just the lens is just a bit sharper and there is less distortion before the light hits the sensor.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life Saver I bought this 2X teleconverter to add more reach for pictures of wildlife. I have a Canon 200mm f2.8 L lens that performs superb, but I needed to get birds and animals closer and I wanted to avoid spending a lot more money for another lens. Everywhere you read that the teleconverters reduce light and quality of your images, so I was somehow skeptical. After getting the Kenko 2X I have to admit that the maximum aperture becomes 5.6 instead of 2.8, but the speed of focus and quality is almost comparable to what I can achieve without it. I have been able to take incredible shots of birds and safari animals and I couldn't be happier with this. I would definitively recommend anyone who doesn't want to spend significant amounts of money in a 400mm L class lens to get a 200mm and add this item. I also use it with a 50mm 1.8 and with a Sigma 10mm fisheye and still I get excellent shots that I wouldn't be able to get otherwise.I also considered buying the Canon 1.4 and Canon 2X teleconverters, but be aware that you cannot use them with all lenses. They are designed to fit only very top of the line glass.I also tried the 3X in the store and realized that you get extreme tele but it doesn't autofocus. At least with my 200mm Canon L 2.8, however if you can tolerate having to manually focus, perhaps is a good idea. I am really considering getting that one as well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Little Item Games, Sporting... Adds the additional telephoto it says it does. Used on a 75-300 EFS canon lens. Little bit of a focusing issue in low light, But switched over to manual and it works fine in any case. Nice clear and crisp photos.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works decently well I use it on a Tamron 70-300, which becomes at the long end an f/11 lens. Camera (7D) does attempt to autofocus, but makes a hash job of it. I consider it manual focus only. Chromatic abberation is very pronounced, sharpness is surprisingly good. In the end, I need pixels on target and I don't need a 600mm often enough to justify buying a separate lens. This does the job.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from A Give and Take Relationship I am a student in both film and photography. When it comes to photography, my main focus is on sports. I primarily shoot college Softball and Baseball games. As a sports photographer, you are always looking for the right lens with plenty of reach to get the shots you need. As a student, a teleconverter is a cheaper solution to buying a 400mm or higher prime lens. One Shot at a Time: The camera I use is the Canon T3i, and I use the Tamron 70-200 f/2.8 Di VC USD lens. When taking one shot at a time, the converter works beautifully! It gives me plenty of reach, has autofocus capabilities, and converts all my data in camera. This means that when I take a picture at 200mm with the converter attached, the metadata will say I am shooting at 400mm. Very handy! The same goes for all settings. The apeture is stopped down to f/5.6 with the converter attached, but for sports this is never a big issue. Especially when most game take place during the day or in well lite stadiums. The autofocus can miss at time, but most of the time it is spot on. I am often forced to shoot through fenses, so the fences could throw off my autofocus. Burst Mode: This converter DOES NOT work in burst mode with the Tamron 70-200 f/2.8 Di VC USD! When I try to use burst mode with this lens and the converter, my camera has communication errors and I am forced to turn my camera off and then back on. The closest I can get to a burst mode is by manually pushing the shutter button as fast as I can, which does hurt your burst fps. The T3i only has a 3 fps burst mode, so I am use to a slow burst. This glitch DOES NOT damage the camera or the lens. Both work as they should when the converter is not attached. The glitch only comes into play with the Tamron 70-200 f/2.8 Di VC USD. All my other lenses work in burst mode with the converter attached. This is the second copy I have recieved of the converter, so I know it is a glitch and not a faulty converter build. Conclusion: The way I see it, having the converter essentially gives me two lenses when shooting sports. I have my Tamron 70-200 f/2.8 Di VC USD and then a 140-400mm f/5.6 with the converter attached. This gives me great ability and freedom to take pictures. This converter will also work with any lens (above 50mm) which allows me to use any of my other lenses too. The quality is great, and autofocus works well. Just remember the limitation when it comes to burst mode. If you know your limitations, then you can find ways to over come them!
