Double Trouble

My new Kenko Pro 300 DG 2x Teleconverter arrived today, not bad seeing as I only ordered it Monday night, and it came from Hong Kong. It also escaped duty and VAT so only cost me £75.

Having had a quick play with it on the 70-200/2.8 it seems to work very well, I had intended to get a 1.4x as well at the end of the month but I might give that a miss for a while having seen the results from the 2x.

Having done some testing, it also works quite happily on my 24-70/2.8, 50/1.8, and 90/2.8 Macro. Whilst it fits the 10-20/4-5.6, the camera won’t then autofocus correctly which isn’t really a surprise.

Hopefully this will satisfy my desire for a longer lens for a while.

    Nice. I wish a 2x would work with my 300F4, be good for wildlife stuff. I’m rubbish with manual focus though.

    From DigitalRev?
    I was thinking of using them for some PW\’s (once I have confirmed if a “KIT” is 2 units.)

    Not this time, but I’ve used DigitalRev before.
