Kenko 2X Teleplus PRO 300 AF review by jeans

Pros: magnification
Cons: soft results

That's the only x2 TC I've ever used and will probably be the last one as well.
Image quality on both my Nikkor 80-200/2.8 and Sigma 105/2.8 macro suffered significantly and the resulting images were too soft for my liking.
Note that I used the proper technique with a sturdy tripod and remote release (no MLU on my Nikon D70).
Compatibility is another story - unlike Nikon Tcs, this one will work with whatever lens you throw at it.
Though it's made of plastic, the build quality is fine for what it's required to do.
Note that there are no weather seals on this TC.


Bottom line:
It's very tempting to get twice the reach of your existing lenses, but the resulting IQ isn't worth the gains.
