Sony SAL-20TC 2.0x Teleconverter Reviews

Cameralabs reviews the Sony SAL-20TC 2.0x Teleconverter and writes;
“If you use a 2x teleconverter, both your focal length and your smallest f-number will double. So if you had a 300mm f2.8 lens, it would become a 600mm f5.6 lens.”

Sony SAL-20TC 2.0x Teleconverter User Reviews

Exactly as advertised | Rating: ★★★★★
“This little guy is compact and lightweight. I added it to my G series 70-200mm lens. A few preconceived notions I had were dispelled almost immediately. They said the f stops would need to drop by two by adding this. I thought I would have to make manual adjustments. I did not. When you power on, the lowest two fstops are removed as an option, and even in auto exposure, the pictures are exposed properly. Excellent shots with this fitted behind the G series lens.” – by Aaron D. Daley
