      Using this with a Sony Alpha 99 and old Sigma 300mm f4 telemacro lens. Auto focus is surprisingly quick and accurate. Pictures look sharp. Very happy with this purchase.

          Choose the Right One

          Comments about Sigma APO Teleconverter 1.4x EX DG for Sony/Minolta Mount Non-HSM Lenses:

          This one (as opposed to the other Sigma teleconverter "for Minolta Maxxum" listed by B&H) would not autofocus with my compatible Sigma lens on a Sony A100. The Minolta Maxxum version would. I also think (counterintuitively) that this is an older version. Please see my comments in regard to the "Minolta Maxxum" version.

              Comments about Sigma APO Teleconverter 1.4x EX DG for Sony/Minolta Mount Non-HSM Lenses:

              This converter is not compatible with the two Sony lenses I own. It does work with a Sigma lens, but I feel that fact should have been disclosed to me before I ordered it. I really needed it to extend the Sony lenses on the Sony camera.
