Rated 5 out of 5 by davethehiker2 One of my first photos using Sony's 1.4X TC
I have owned the Sony 300mm f/2.8 G lens for a long time. I also had the Sony 2X TC but had mixed feelings about the results I was getting. The 2X caused loss of contrast and in low light my A900 would have difficulty finding auto-focus. After years of second guessing myself I finally bought the 1.4X TC. I wish I had bought it sooner. Other than the expected loss of one f-stop, there is no downside! My A900 is able to focus quickly in dim light and I can not see any degradation to image. In the example below there is zero cropping.
Be aware that this TC will only work with some high end Sony lenses and is not compatible with all Sony lenses. Check before you buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Thoma Not sure what to do with this?
I bought this 1.4 teleconverter because I cannot afford the 12,000 dollar 500mm telephoto lens. I thought I'd try this on my 70/400 mm telephoto lens. Problem is I cant manually focus the long shots, which is why I bought this. So I have this expensive piece of gear for moon shots. For now. All the Canon and Nikon guys have them, not sure why they have them, but I'll ask next time I go out. It looks good on my camera!
