Has anyone used the Tamron AF1.4X / SP AF 1.4x Pro Teleconverter

Jul 24, 2010
I have the Tamron SP 70-300MM F/4-5.6 Di VC USD and was thinking of getting the Tamron AF1.4X / SP AF 1.4x Pro Teleconverter to use with it. I have the D90 and just wondered if anyone has every used this combination. Or can someone suggest a better combination instead of spending a bunch of money on a bigger lens.

I own both the TC and the lens you're talking about, and they're both excellent.

Unfortunately, though, it's not going to be great with that lens, and no TC will be. Slow consumer zooms just don't do great on teleconverters, and this combo is no exception. You can put it on there in a pinch, but it's not going to be appreciably better than cropping much of the time.

The Tamron 1.4 TC is excellent, though -- and it's about the only option for AF with a non-AFS Nikkor. It's great on both the AF-S and AF 300/4 Nikkors, which are the best ways to get beyond 300mm with a TC.
