Kenko 2X Teleplus MC7 AF review by joe88
Review Date: 1/30/2015 Would you recommend the product? Yes | Total Spent: $45.00| Rating: 9 

Pros: very sharp 7/5 element AF-converter
Cons: very small CA's wide open

for this low price a very good 2x converter

nice colors, high contrast and good sharpness

I've tested it stopped down to f8-11

very small CA's even with very well corrected lenses.

similar to Tamron 2x MC 7

if you'll get very sharp tele-shootings of birds f.e. try to fit a small macro tube with achromatic lens in it (=focal reductor).
Small CA's will disappear, totally.

highly recommended - much more better than mc4

Kenko 2X Teleplus MC7 AF review by badpickev
Review Date: 1/6/2008 Would you recommend the product? Yes | Total Spent: $131.95| Rating: 7 

Pros: price
Cons: not as good as the pro line up

The MC7 2X TC is the middle level TC made by Kenko. This unit is by far sharper than the MC4 and is not that far off of the PRO lineup. With a modest price increase over the MC4, this item is attractive foe the casual or amature photographer that is looking for some reach and can not afford the pro line-up.

My copy of the MC7 works quite well on all my lenses and while i do see some sharpness loss, its not exaggerated as you get with lesser TC's. By adding a 2X to most lenses, you now need a lot of light and good contrast to make the AF work.

Over all I am pretty happy with my purchase and have used it for 4 years.

Kenko 2X Teleplus MC7 AF review by ronen_we
Review Date: 11/15/2006 Would you recommend the product? Yes | Total Spent: None indicated| Rating: 8 


worked well with all my nikon lenses, no compatibility issues with autofocusing or metering.

with heavy 80-200/2.8 there is a bit of play between lens and teleconvertor, though does seem to have any influnce on optical quality.

used it quite a bit with 80-200/2.8, good pleasing results from the combination.

well worth its price
