Kenko Teleplus PRO 300 3x DG Teleconverter review

 

If you're looking to extend the maximum focal range of your lenses but don't have the money to spend on a specialist telephoto, a teleconverter is a great alternative.

Kenko Teleplus Pro 300 AF DGX 2x review

 

2x teleconverter for Canon and Nikon DSLRs

Good build quality ; Far cheaper than Canon and Nikon's alternatives ; Included pouch

Not compatible with all lenses ; Noticeable drop in image quality

Overall, the Kenko Teleplus Pro 300 AF DGX 2x does a decent job to increase focal length while maintaining an acceptable standard of image quality, and it's less than half the price of Nikon and Canon's own 2x teleconverters.

Kenko PRO 300 3x teleconverter 35mm Converters

 

I have used this teleconverter with a nikon 180/2.8 ED and a Tamron 90 mm/2.8 macro. Both lenses are well known for their extreme sharpness and good contrast.With the 180 mm on a digital DX-size sensor you obtain 180 x 1.5 x 3 = 840 mm of focal lenght....

You will get that distant bird or rabbit full frame, just not sharpautofocus did still work on my D200, though slow and not always 100% accurate

very visible loss of contrast with good lensesvery visible loss of sharpness. With 10 megapixels an enlargement and a 2 x teleconverter will probably give a better end result

Kenko Teleplus Pro 300 1.4x converter

 

This is an excellent product. I use it with my Nikon D70 and Sigma 300mm F/4 APO Macro lens for nature. The images I get are very sharp with good color and contrast, even with the aperture wide open. In fact, I don't see any degradation in quality when...

Image quality is great

Focus is a bit slower.With the D70 and Sigma lens the EXIF data for focal length and aperture are recorded as if there was no converter attached. So, EXIF data saying 300mm at f/4 really means 420mm at f/5.6 when using this converter

Product Specifications

Placed between the camera body and lens, a teleconverter contains a set of optics that will effectively increase the focal length of a lens by a specific amount. Common magnifications are 1.4 times and 2 times, but the Kenko Teleplus PRO 300 AF converter has a 3x magnification. For example, using a 3 times (3x) teleconverter will increase the focal of 300mm lens to 900mm.The Teleplus PRO 300 converter is made with high quality multicoated optical glass supplied by Hoya Corporation, the worlds largest manufacturer of optical glass. The PRO 300 3x is designed for use with lenses of 50mm or above and work best with telephoto lenses of 100mm to 500mm. The PRO 300 3.0x can be used with telephoto zoom lenses as well as prime lenses. However, Kenko does not recommend them for lenses that have a zoom range that starts under 50 mm.KENKO PRO 300 AF Teleplus converters have genuine Gate Array IC (Integrated Circuitry). It means that the converter's unique circuitry maintains signal integrity between the camera body and lens. These converters are designed to electronically operate the same way an original manufacturer's converter would provided there is enough light available.
