About Vivitar 1.4x

The Vivitar 1.4x Auto Focus Tele Converter for Sony is an easy way to noticeably extend the reach (focal length) of compatible lenses. The 1.4x Tele Converter can be mounted between select lenses and the camera body to increase the focal length by the power of 1.4x. The new multi layer coating reduces flare and ghost, which is a common problem with digital cameras.

They also offer maximum photography magnification by 1.4 x, without any variation in the minimum focusing distance. Compact and lightweight, these teleconverters convert your lenses into longer focal-length lenses, so you don't have to do a lot of unnecessary footwork.

Auto focus only works with some lenses


from Seattle  -  Semi-pro Photographer

A little disappointed because it doesn't work with my main lenses: DA* 16-50 and Sigma 70-200 2.8 (HSM lenses just keep hunting and flashing) Somebody said don't use tele converter with wide angle lenses, but the auto focus works fine with the DA 18-250mm and FA 24-90mm and don't know why It doesn't work with my FA-100 2.8 (?!)

It Works on Auto Focus; K-5, and K10d


from Brandon, MS  -  Photo Enthusiast

Finally. It took a very old friend "Vivitar" two tries, but this on really works. I do not write reviews but thought this one needed writing. Less than $100.00, great value. Tight fit even on my very used K10d. Two Tamron and one Pentax lens. A little slow finding infinity and focusing first start, Fine after that.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  I'd like to use this with my sony A65 and a Tamron 70-300mm lense. Will this work?
james b  yes it will work but auto focus may not work but works well in manual focus
Shopper  Will this converter work with the Sony Nex7 cameras?
Andrew R  Unfortunately no, this unit is for use with Sony A (alpha) mount DSLRs.
Shopper  Hi 1. Will this TC communicate to my A55 body the the correct focal length of my lens AFTER factoring in the 1.4X change? 2. Will it communicate the accurate apperture? 3. Will this work with the (old) Minolta 200 2.8 lens? Thanks
DENNIS H  Hi, I received this tele converter about 2 months ago and so far no problems. It will be a little bit slower because of the 1.4 mag factor but the auto exposure in the camera will sort that out. If the Minolta 200mm 2.8 works with your A55 it will work with the converter and will be about a 280mm .
