Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

Placed between the camera body and lens, a teleconverter contains a set of optics that will effectively increase the focal length of any lens with which it is used. KENKO Teleplus Pro 300 converters are made with precision quality multicoated optical glass supplied by Hoya Corporation, the worlds largest manufacturer of optical glass. These glass elements are designed to match the optical quality of the prime and telephoto zoom lenses (even at the edges). The optical design of the elements and light path is wide enough not to cause vignetting. The PRO 300 family are designed to work best with telephoto zoom lenses of 100mm and above. The PRO 300 can be used with telephoto zoom lenses as well as prime lenses, however Kenko does not recommend them for zoom lenses that have a range starting at under 50mm. Full AF operation with the PRO 300 2.0x is possible when using camera lenses with a maximum aperture of F2.8 or brighter. Please be aware that AF will work properly only if there is enough light and contrast on the subject to activate the camera’s AF sensors. (Manual focusing is required when using lenses with smaller maximum f-stop value than those given above.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent piece of kit 20 April 2011
Colour Name:black|Verified Purchase
Excellent service with very quick delivery.

I've tried this on Canon's 100 macro, 70-200, 100-400 and 24-105 and it works with all of them, perhaps most surprisingly with the 24-105 bearing in mind that it is designed for use with lenses over 100mm. Yes it can sometimes hunt a bit if trying to use AF on some subjects, but fine once switched to manual.

A great piece of kit to carry in the bag all the time, it takes up so little space, ready for use with any of the above should that extra 'reach' be needed.

Highly recommended and a much cheaper way to get a long lens than spending hundreds - I certainly wouldn't be thinking of buying a 800mm lens with its near 5 figure price tag, although I am sure the quality of the images using such a beast would be better. The quality may be reduced a little, but for most users this is not going to be an issue.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kenko 2x TeleConverter 14 Jan 2013
By Martin
Colour Name:black
This is a fantastic piece of kit and is never off my 75-300mm Canon EF lens. You have to accpet that here will be a loss of light and although some say that the AF no longer works once the Converter is fitted I have not found this to be the case. Yes, the AF can take a couple of attempts to 'lock-on' but it cdertainly works, then again, taking pictures of the moon (which is the main reason I brought this) I usually focus manually anyhoo!

A great addition to my collectionn of lenses and certainly easier to afford than an equally performing lens on its own.

5.0 out of 5 stars There's good news and bad news.... 5 May 2011
Colour Name:black
I bought one of these recently and it arrived quite quickly, nicely packed and when I opened it I found a very nice piece of kit. I got my latest camera out (Canon EOS 550d) and popped it on. Then I tried my trusty old EF 28-80mm. Absolutly fine. Clear, secure and tidy looking. Job done.
Then I decided to try it with my EFS 55-250mm. Oh no! It doesn't work with EFS lenses!
I thought I'd better point this out in my review because there has to be someone else out there who hasn't considered this eventuality. Or is it just me?
Well, I then thought I'd try one more thing and put some extension tubes on with the lense and it worked fine in macro mode. No electronic lense functions of course, but I took a crystal clear picture of the tip of my pencil showing the imperfections in the graphite core which further demonstrated just how good a gadget this is.
Now I just hope the Amazon dealer is kind enough to take it back........

5.0 out of 5 stars Accept the limitations and enjoy it 5 Aug 2012
By Dave
Colour Name:black|Verified Purchase
I was a little apprehensive about buying this due to mixed reviews, but it is so worth it if only to give you more flexibility. The optical quality is excellent - although inevitably a little 'softer' than a dedicated lens of whatever focal length you're after. I use it on my Canon 100mm f2.8 macro, and the extra reach works wonders on insect etc. shots. The 180mm macro lens is far too expensive. Focusing can be an issue - just take your time and switch to manual and it's fine - particularly with moon shots (Canon 100-300mm non-IS zoom).

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceeded expectations 21 April 2013
Colour Name:black|Verified Purchase
Couldn't bring myself to shell out for the Canon 2X converter, and took a chance on the Kenko. It has exceeded my expectations, and is a brilliant bit of kit that has performed superbly from its first outing. I'm using it with a 400mm/5D3 Canon combination (on a decent tripod) and printing severe crops of the resulting files up to A3+... The quality is excellent, obviously not quite 'prime lens alone' standard, but acceptably close... This bargain converter has doubled my focal lengths and possibilities for a very modest outlay, and has to be rated an absolute bargain!
Highly recommended, especially if you find the (excellent) Canon equivalent an investment too far...

5.0 out of 5 stars Kenko's 2x pro 300 dgx teleconverter EOS EF fit 27 Jan 2011
By Qman
Colour Name:black|Verified Purchase
Although I had to wait longer than expected as the first order never appeared, it was worth the wait, I have carried out a few indoor experiments with this converter and a couple of different Canon lenses I am very pleased with the results, after reading many reviews I was cautious but now I am pleased I took plunge. I am now waiting for the good weather to really put it through its paces.

5.0 out of 5 stars better than the MC7
I used this with my 70-300mm IS lense to take snaps of the moon and got surprisingly sharp pics. Not as sharp as a dedicated 600mm, but for 195 I can't complain. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Good TC
Combining any TC with any lens will reduce sharpness and incoming light. The Kenko produced great results when combined with 5D MKIII and EF 70-200mm f2. Read more
