About the product

Kenko Teleplus tele converter 1.4x is a high precision manufactured optical device to be installed between the camera body and the master lens. Its purpose is to multiply the focal length of the lens according to its multiplication factor, changing your lens into a tele lens, with minimum loss of resolution and sharpness of the image.

The Kenko HD DGX is a standard series of tele converters designed to fit high-resolution DSLR cameras and lenses, and to perform best results when used with lenses whose focal length is from 50mm or more.

1) Precautions
- Turn off optical correction functions, vibration reduction (VR) and focus aid assistance modes before using Kenko Teleplus DGX tele converter.
- Proper work and accuracy of AF mode only when the lens has a resulting aperture* of f/5.6 or faster. If the resulting aperture is greater than f/5.6 manual focus is strongly recommended. *resulting aperture = wide open aperture value of the master lens x magnification of the lens converter.

2) Better to know
Tele converters can provide plenty of advantages but, like other optical add-on accessories, tends to:
- Shallow the depth of field
- Make your optical system darker as they increase the aperture equivalent value
- Affect the sharpness of the image ( mostly large magnification converters)
 

3) Storage
- When not in use, please remove Teleplus tele converter from your camera and lens and store it separately.
