High-quality focal length extension Nikon Z-mount teleconverter TC-1.4X/2.0x experience

  This article comes from Hummingbird.

   In July 2020, Nikon released two Z-mount photographic accessories, the Z teleconverter TC-1.4X and 2.0x, which can achieve 1.4X and 2.0x respectively. The focal length of 2.0X is expanded, and after installation, there is no compromise on image quality, focus and anti-shake. The teleconverter I used this time is the Nikon Z series “big three yuan” telephoto lens-NIKKOR Z70-200mmf/2.8VRS lens, which is currently the only lens product of the Nikon Z series that is compatible with the teleconverter. .

   After installing TC-1.4X teleconverter, NIKKOR Z70-200mmf/2.8VRS lens specifications Change to 98-280mmf/4, the effective aperture is reduced by 1 stop; and after installing the TC-2.0X, it becomes an ultra-telephoto lens category, the specification becomes 140-400f/5.6, and the effective aperture is reduced by 2 stops.

   It is not difficult to understand the use and demand of teleconverter. If you already have a lens with specifications such as 70-200mm, the longest focal length of 200mm will be too stretched for subjects such as birds, lotus, aviation, etc. that require ultra-telephoto end. The cost of purchasing an additional telephoto lens is obviously much more expensive than buying a teleconverter, and carrying two telephoto lenses at the same time will be more burdensome. Therefore, the teleconverter has become a good choice for using the existing lens in hand to expand the focal length, and different teleconverters can be flexibly selected according to the needs of different subjects.

  Z teleconverter TC-1.4X consists of 4 groups of 6 lenses, including 1 aspheric lens, weighs about 220g, and measures about 72mmx18.5mm. The total length is about 37mm; the Z teleconverter TC-2.0x is composed of 5 groups of 8 lenses, including 1 aspheric lens, weighs about 270g, measures about 72mmx32.5mm, and has a total length of about 50.5mm. After installation and use, in addition to the overall length will be slightly increased, but it will not affect the overall center of gravity and weight.

   The two Z teleconverters make full use of the performance of the main lens in the optical design, while minimizing the various aberrations that may occur when using the teleconverter. Even if the image is cropped, good rendering performance can be maintained. In real shooting, thanks to the optical performance and autofocus performance of the main lens NIKKOR Z70-200mmf/2.8VRS, the use of Z teleconverters TC-1.4X and 2.0x is basically in focus sensitivity, anti-shake performance and image quality No loss occurred.

   In addition, since the closest focusing distance will not change after the teleconverter is installed, the magnification of shooting can also be increased according to the magnification, which brings a certain Distance capacity. The maximum magnification of NIKKOR Z70-200mmf/2.8VRS is changed from 0.2 times to 0.28 times after using the teleconverter TC-1.4X, and the maximum magnification is changed from 0.2 times to 0.4 times when using TC-2.0x.

  When shooting urban scenery, the spatial compression brought by a longer focal length can bring a stronger visual effect and a stronger sense of perspective. When shooting subjects that cannot be touched up close, such as airplanes and lotuses, a longer focal length can capture more details, and at the same time obtain a longer view angle, which greatly expands the focal length of 70-200mm in the hand.

   Generally speaking, in terms of image quality and ease of use, Nikon Z Extended Range The mirrors TC-1.4X and 2.0x are the best choices for telephoto expansion for Nikon Z mount users. It’s worth mentioning again that as of press time, the Nikon Nikkor Z70-200mmf/2.8VRS lens is currently the only lens that can use these two teleconverters. We also look forward to Nikon’s targeting of the Z system in the future. Come with more telephoto lenses, with the extender to bring a more extreme super telephoto experience.
