Pros: Quality, value for money, compactness, discretion

Cons: Accentuates the difference in yield between the various aperture diaphragms multiplied (but perhaps it is normal)

Opinion: I took it almost for gaming, in a well-known but trusted site, much less than the amazon price shown on the card. Otherwise I do not understand why it's relegated to out-of-production: it's still on the Kenko product page, as "premium 2.0x", while the HD DGX is referred to as "standard 2.0x" and is on the net new and available a little everywhere. Open and tested in the evening at home, on my 200 2.8 L old, for which I mainly took it: so terrible conditions for a first try, a 400 f5.6 equivalent in poor artificial light .. instead, already here and for this reason I immediately gained my favors. The AF is kept fine, certainly with little light and close distances, the AF can lose the bandwidth and make a couple of end of stroke. If the subject is not completely out of focus, focusing is quick and accurate as without the 2x . This is confirmed by the evidence then made in optimum light,Coupled 200 2.8 and 2x telescopes always get well and quickly the distance even close to the minimum, 1.5m, where the resulting 400mm becomes almost a macro. The machine (5d2 in my case) recognizes the lens, as if 2x was not there, but also automatically doubled the diaphragms, 2.8 to 5.6 and so on. RnThis is very advantageous because it means that functions are maintained they assume target recognition (vignetting correction, digital objective optimization, distortion, etc.) but at the same time there is no risk of error in the opening. rn I still could not verify if it actually loses less than 2 stops in true brightness, just I can eventually update it. The rendering seems great! To honestly, by comparing successful shots (correct focus and no microrose) at f5.6, f8 and f11, you can see that the 2x telescope slightly accentuates the difference between f2.8 and two stops following in the non multiplied objective. Result: While the 200 2.8 smooth af 2.8 & egravis; already very good, and gets great at f4 and excellent at f5.6, once doubled with this Kenko the goal becomes good at TA (= f5.6), certainly acceptable in the middle but a little less incisive than the self itself , and a soft thread at the edges, while at f8 and f11 the yield returns really great and excellent as the lens does not multiply, over the entire frame. Already in f6.3 - f 7.1, there is an improvement. In fact, I expect that I will use it mainly at f8, where the bottom off is still nicely, and the blur remains very nice. In contrast to the smooth optics, they dance at 3 speeds: 2 for the relative opening halved, and one for double focus. Inevitable then have to resort to 640-800 iso even in daylight. I imagine that with a stabilized canvas is another life. The Kenko 2x adds just over 40mm of boss and about 200g of weight, so, to say, my "400" f5.6L does not reach 18cm from the junction ( without haze), and is of a pelor under 1000gr without plugs: we are well below the 26cm and 1250gr of the compact yet 400 f5.6 "true". Okay, the current Sigma and Tamron 100-400 stabilized are just a little bigger and more heavy than my 400-kit, and they offer the versatility of zoom and stabilizer. However for me the advantage is in the bag, in addition to the excellent 200 f2.8 L (which renders the above zoom if they dream), if necessary a 400mm f5.6 of quality. All for just over 100 euros (with the 350 spent for the 200 f2.8 used yet I do not arrive at 500 in all ...) and with just 2 more on the bag.rn Chromosome then, and recommended! Ciaorn

Pros: Price, sharpness

Cons: I do not know

Opinion: I bought it without wanting, that is, I was lending in a camera shop and not to make the store owner a problem for a return ..... I preferred to get a duplicator too (and here I did not know) if Not brand. But in the end, I am convinced of the opposite; On another occasion i borrowed two original duplicators of Sigma 1.4 and 2.00, but compared to the Kenko Pro 300 DGX, despite having tried only with Sigma fixed targets, I noticed a sharp abysmal difference and color for the Kenko.rnSoldi expended Well for those who do not want to faint with an original canvas.

Pros: Price, robustness, sharpness ... "Made in Japan".

Cons: ... maybe the fact that it is not tropicalized, but it is asking too much!

Opinion: For the price paid, only positive opinions !!! rnPurchased new for € 128.00 June 2017, including shipping charges !!! rnOctually the end quality is a bit losing but nothing irremediable, if you snap with good light the result obtained is More than satisfactory, so more than satisfied!

Pros: Price, quality / strength

Cons: tropicalization lack

Opinion: I bought and used often with 5d mark III and 70-200 L is 2.8ii and 100 macro 2.8 L. I can not fault it. The ficus great car and the yield very good. In short, as mentioned in contrast, it is not tropicalization but its price is worth every penny and I do not think you could ask for more. I recommend it to everybody.

Pros: see opinion

Cons: see opinion or when sincerely nothing

Opinion: Upon arriving I did a simple test ... I mounted on my 1DS Mark 2 in conjunction with the Tamron 24/70 2.8- PERFECT NO PROBLEM. The autofocus locks perfectly even under difficult conditions today was a rainy and gray and I photographed from the window of the house at full apertura.rnMa difficie we tested, the one that I wanted to più.rnSempre Mark 2 (full frame so) and Tamron 150 / 600- maximum extension for a total of 1200 mm! rncavalletto, mirror raised f 6 Original (hence twice) 1/40 second, I photographed an earthenware pot-holder on the balcony of the house which is one gnomo.rnL'autofocus does not hook, but the light was really little, I's focused hand smoothly iso 1200.rnPostero the photos in my gallery test objectives, for those interested can make us jump, do not know how to put it into this recenzione.rnIL MIO JUDGEMENT AND 'ABSOLUTELY POSITIVOrn
