Lens Description: Extending the effective focal length of the Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM OSS lens, the FE 2.0x Teleconverter renders this telephoto zoom as a 140-400mm f/5.6 lens. The dedicated design maintains full communication between the lens and E-mount mirrorless cameras, including auto-exposure metering, autofocus, and Optical SteadyShot image stabilization. Additionally, this teleconverter also features a dust- and moisture-resistant construction, matching the lens, to benefit working in harsh environmental conditions.

Photography Life Review Summary: The Sony FE 2x Teleconverter is an important addition to Sony’s full-frame mirrorless camera lineup. It significantly extends the reach of the compatible Sony lenses for a relatively low financial cost. It is very small and lightweight and proves an excellent companion for long hikes and situations where the size and weight savings are essential. While its best to use it with fast aperture lenses such as Sony’s 70-200mm f/2.8 lens, the converter works quite nicely even with the company’s FE 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 GM lens. There is a noticeable impact on overall sharpness and an increase in chromatic aberration, but the image quality remains quite decent. Overall, the Sony FE 2x Teleconverter is a capable performer, and I highly recommend adding it to your camera bag if you have one of the three compatible Sony lenses.
