    Take Beautiful Closeups and Macros

    First off, the title shows this is a 2x teleconverter, while the description states this is a 1.4x teleconverter. This is a 2x converter. Secondly, I'm using the teleconverter with the Sony G Master FE 100-400mm which results in 200-800mm focal length. Camera Body: Sony A7ii So how much light is lost? My camera shows F9 at 200mm and F11 at 800mm. I first tried shooting subjects that were very far away to test the limits of the teleconverter. It's quite a challenge to keep the camera steady and get focused, but it's not impossible. Don't try to photograph tiny birds like swallows that are 30 feet or more away. You'd be asking for too much. It's much better to find a subject that is well within reach of your actual focal length or just out of reach. That's where the teleconverter really shines. There's no huge penalty for shooting wide open at 800mm if your subject is in the right range. You will get amazing closeups and if you're into macros you will get excellent detail without having to get very close to the subject. If you're photographing wildlife, this is great since you'll be able to get closer shots without getting physically closer and potentially disturbing your subject. I didn't notice any major loss of quality in images. Some images came out soft but this is more of a focus issue. You will find it difficult to lock in focus at times. Overall my images were beyond acceptable. When loading up photographs for editing I don't need to do a major amount of post processing in order to make the shots look good. I'm editing just as I would edit any photo without a converter. You won't be spending a lot of time cleaning up quality loss. It's a little pricey, but I'm definitely satisfied. If you have the right expectations you will enjoy using it.

    cheaper than a new lens

    I bought this converter for my Sony Gmaster 70-200 f2.8. I was considering buying the Sony Gmaster 100-400 f4-5.6 but ultimately decided on the 70-200 and then bought the 2x converter. hopefully you realize that the 2x converter causes you to lose 2 stops of light so it turns my f2.8 into a f5.6 when i have it on my lens. if you are outside in sunlight it's not a problem, but indoors with good lighting it hurts but is manageable. in the end it roughly equivocates me owning the 100-400 but at only 20% the cost. this is a good option if you don't want to spend the money on both lenses or if you want to turn your 100-400 into a 200-800 but you probably can only use that in bright sunlight. BE AWARE: this only fits these two lenses that i have referred to here! no other lenses work with it!

    Not usable

    This lens only works with a lens that had not come out yet from Sony. It was not readily apparent on the website that the it only worked with one lens and that lens was not yet available. I have returned this 2x lens. While I have rated it low and have not recommended it, the reason is only because I have no way of testing the lens. I feel Sony and Best Buy were wrong to sell this lens prior to the release of the only lens it works with. Also, they need to make that more clear on the website that it is only compatible with the one lens.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend
