Nikon introduced two new teleconverters with its professional Z 70-200mm f2.8 VR S (B&H Photo Video/Adorama/Amazon) telephoto zoom: The Z TC-1.4x and TC-2.0x teleconverters are designed for Nikon’s Z-series mirrorless cameras and corrected for full-frame sensors. The Nikon Z TC-1.4x & TC-2x teleconverters are now in stock and shipping at major US stores.
Teleconverters are mounted between the lens and the camera body and magnify the image by 1.4x or 2.0x thus effectively increasing the focal length of each lens by the same amount. Unfortunately lenses have to be designed to work with teleconverters and currently the Nikon Z 70-200mm f2.8 VR S is the only lens which can be used with Nikon’s new TC-1.4x and TC-2.0x. But Nikon will certainly add more lenses to their Z line-up in the future which can use teleconverters.
Optimized for the compact mirrorless Z system, the Z Teleconverter TC-1.4x & TC-2x increase the reach of compatible lenses by 1.4x (40%) / 2x (100%) while retaining 100% resolution, AF and VR functionality, minimum focusing distances and weather-sealing. This will be welcome for most wildlife, nature, adventure and sports photographers.
