Whether you’re trying to capture the look of determination on your kids face at home plate or the fine detail of a Tiger Moth resting on a branch, being able to add that extra 1.4X reach can change how others see your world.
Fujinon XF 1.4X TC WR Features
You may be thinking that at $420 the Fujifilm Fujinon Teleconverter XF 1.4x TC WR is a bit pricey, but being able to add 1.4X to the focal length with just 4.6 oz. added clearly beats having to switch lenses.
The Fujifilm Fujinon Teleconverter XF 1.4x TC WR is compatible with the XF50-140mmF2.8 R LM OIS WR, XF100-400mmF4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR, and XF80mmF2.8 R LM OIS WR Macro.
You won’t have to worry about any loss in the speed of the AutoFocus (AF) when added to your XF lens. The mirrorless cameras have “Live View” Contrast Detection AF, so you can still shoot at the low aperture values. Because the AF is handled by the image sensor, focusing is accurate with a shallow depth of field.
Thanks to its solid metal build, you can be sure it will stay put snuggly. And its design makes it quick and easy to add on; simply attach it to your camera just like any other lens. Your lens then mounts onto the converter. The push-button on the side allows for a quick release.
Weather resistance is maintained perfectly when added to your WR lens, allowing you to shoot in wet or dusty environments where wildlife is found.
The downside to adding a teleconverter is that there is a loss of light. A full f-stop. The Fujifilm X Series indicates this by changing the aperture value in the camera. What this means is that a shot with the 50-140mm f2.8 with the 1.4x fitted, for example, the widest aperture changes to f4. Information is displayed and recorded by the camera to reflect the focal length and aperture changes.
Able to capture colors beautifully, with great contrast with plenty of detail. It would take serious pixel peeping to notice any drops of sharpness.
