Kenko MC4-AF1.4DGX-C overview

  • 1Description

The TelePlus MC4 AF 1.4X DGX Teleconverter for Canon by Kenko gives you the dramatic effect of increasing the focal length of your lens by 1.4x. The MC4 features a 4-element, 4-group design with multi-coated lens elements, and fully automatic diaphragm coupling. With the Kenko TelePlus MC4 DGX your prime lens' depth of field is reduced by 1/1.4, but retains the prime minimum focusing distance.

TelePlus converters have genuine Gated Array IC (Integrated Circuitry). This means that signal integrity is maintained between the camera body and lens and autofocus will work properly on lenses with apertures of F/4 or brighter. On lenses with smaller f-stop values, manual focusing may be necessary. The updated circuitry also allows for the exposure meta-data to be recorded by the camera more accurately.

    Kenko MC4-AF1.4DGX-C reviews

    TelePlus MC4 AF 1.4X DGX Teleconverter for Canon is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 30.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good teleconverter This is a very good teleconverter. I don't see how the Pro version could improve upon it. Images are very sharp, even at 300mm. I use this on a Tamron 70-300 VC lens. The lens will auto focus quickly 99% of the time in good light. I saw a lens test where this DGX version was better that the Pro DG version under lab conditions. I'm very happy with this purchase. Any teleconverter is only as good as the lens you put it on. It will magnify any flaws in the lens. I tried this on an old 75-300 lens from a film SLR camera. The results were poor at 300mm.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellrnt product I use the Kenko 1,4 converter with a canon 100-400 mm telephoto lens. It is used inconjunctio n with a Canon 7d Camera. The great part is the auto focus works fantastic , with my canon camera and lens. The low cost is a extra bonus. I use it taking shots of birds. I can find no problems with this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the money I agonized about which extender to buy and finally bought this Kenko. I was concerned that the low price meant low quality but didn't want to spend too much for my limited use. It works well with my Canon 100-400 5.6f lens. I was concerned about auto focus and low light. Auto Focus worked fine even on a overcast day. I'm very pleased and would highly recommend this extender. I use the extender to photograph nature.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from recommend Good product. Use on a Cannon 70-200 F4 USM. As lens is non IS I use with a monopod and ball head. Obviously bright days are an asset. For price cannot go wrong.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the money and then some I use the extender for nature photography with a 100-400 5.6f Canon lens. Autofocus works fine. Pictures are clear, even at 400mm and I can hand hold the camera. Would highly recommend this extender.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product This is perfect for my Canon EOS 50D telephoto lens 70-300. Only wish there was one available for my 28-135 lens.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Severely Degraded AF and Tracking I purchased this extender for use between my Canon 7D and 70-200 2.8 IS II. I mainly shoot sports photography and had a sporting event upcoming that I wanted to use it for. When it arrived, I took some test shots of a sign across the street with and without the extender at the native 2.8 and 4.0 apertures. I was surprised to see that the image quality was pretty good and was excited to use it at the event the following day. Unfortunately, while the image quality doesn't take a huge hit, the AF certainly does. The 70-200 2.8 IS II has an amazingly fast AF system. This, paired with my 7D makes it a killer combo for fast-paced sports with a lot of action. When I added the extender at the event, the AF system became terrible. It could not track the action at all and even had a hard time focusing on people just standing there. The keeper rate was almost zero with only 2 or 3 out of 20 or 30 that I took with the extender actually being in focus. Wanting to give the product another shot, I took it out to a farmer's market with people milling about and dogs running around to see how it held up there. Again, AF was extremely hit or miss (mostly miss) and it had problems tracking people walking just slowly about the market. It seemed to do OK, not great, at AF on signs but that was about it. It had trouble with anything that was moving. I would have loved to give this a great review based on some other reviews I've read and seen about how great the optics are in this extender for the price. Unfortunately, optics don't matter when very few pictures are in focus. Perhaps it is a problem with the new version of the 70-200 2.8 IS II. I'm not sure. However, I returned this as it simply didn't work for me at all. Given B&H's great return policy, it might be worth a shot for others to try out to see if it might work for them.
