For sports, wildlife and landscapes, this teleconverter lens can give you maximum reach with minimum gear to carry.Extend the range of your primary lens with the Sony SAL-20TC 2.0x teleconverter lens. Using the SAL-20TC, you can extend the photographic range of your primary lens by 2x, letting you cover more distance and capture more subjects without the burden of extra equipment. This extra range–when combined with the lens’s compact size–makes it a hand accessory on long wilderness treks or while traveling on vacation. Even better, the lens offers a superb optical performance that preserves both the accuracy and the image quality of your primary lens. The SAL-20TC supports the G series 70-200mm f/2.8 G telephoto zoom, the G series 300mm f/2.8 G telephoto lenses, and the unique Sony 135mm f/2.8 STF (Smooth Transition Focus) lens. Note that photographers will have to compensate for their reduced light transmission by opening their apertures two steps with the 2x converter.

Exactly as advertised 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.
