Extend your reach by 1.4X
If you shoot sports or wildlife, sometimes a little extra reach makes all the difference in getting the winning shot. Sony's SEL14TC 1.4X teleconverter is a lightweight, compact alternative to lugging around a bulky extra lens. Attached between your Sony E-mount camera body and a compatible lens, it increases the lens's effective focal length by 40% without degrading image resolution. This converter is currently only compatible with Sony's SEL70200GM 70-200mm zoom lens, and will increase its zoom range to 98-280mm on full-frame Sony E-mount cameras.

Sony SEL14TC 1.4X Teleconverter reviews
I was searching for a device that could give me a little more zoom to my Sony FE100-400mm and came across the Sony SEL14TC 1.4X Teleconverter. I couldn't be happier with the results I got! I did do some reach and the consensus was that the 1.4x Teleconverter is better than the 2.0x Teleconverter. I'm not a professional photographer but rather a dad trying to take great pictures of my kids! My combination of this Sony SEL14TC 1.4X Teleconverter and my Sony FE 100-400mm lens allows me to capture spectacular photos of my children catching waves in the ocean all from the comfort of my folding chair on the beach! If my short review does not convince you that this Teleconverter is a wonderful compliment to your setup, then contact Crutchfield and they will be able to answer all of your questions as they did for me. Forever a Crutchfield customer!
