    Great starter lens for Sony a7iii

    I purchased the Sony a7iii and it came with this lens. For a kit lens this really surpirsed me. Once you get to know how to work the Sony a7iii camera, you can take some pretty nice and sharp pictures. I even did a decent Macro picture with this lens and edited in Lightroom. I would recommend this as your first lens before you spend hundreds or thousands on a PRO lens.

    Sony 1.4x Teleconverter

    This is a good teleconverter for a few of the Sony lenses. Images produced are still sharp. I mainly use it paired to my 200-600mm lens. It seldom leaves my lens.

    Works wonderfully with the Sony 100-400mm lens

    Pristine image quality for giving your zoom lens the extra "reach" it needs. I recently bought the Sony 100-400mm zoom lens and wanted to be able to zoom in even further using this teleconverter. Although you lose roughly a stop and half of light, the autofocus works perfectly and the image quality shows no loss.

    Great multiplier

    I purchased the Sony 1.4 teleconverter to use with the Sony FE 100-400GM zoom lens. The converter does a great job of extending reach with no noticeable image degradation, although as with all converters, it does cost you on the maximum aperture available on the lens (easily countered with higher ISO settings). My primary use for this is for wildlife but I will also use it at upcoming air shows. Since Sony's longest native FE lens is the 100-400, the 1.4X and 2.0X are necessary to extend reach.

    A little extra range goes a long way.

    A little extra reach goes a long way, as long as you’ve got the light to lose a stop on your aperture. Perfect to extend a 100-400 to a 140 to 560.

    great addition

    Tis is a great addition for my growing Sony camera gear.

    The 1.4x teleconverter is perfect when its necessary to get in close without intruding or spooking wildlife

    I use this with Sony 7RIV and A9 with the FE 200-600 lens.

    Make sure you check Sony product guide to confirm which body/lens combo before purchasing

    Lightweight f2.8 goodness

    Yes it doesn't zoom to 200 and no you wont miss it. 180mm is fine, crop it or walk closer to your subject. No optical image stabilization but I can use it with my A7iii with no issues and appreciate the trade off in weight savings. Image quality? Tack sharp to me but I also don't blow up an image to 300% and look at every pixel. Listen, this len's super power is that it's f2.8 and your average dad with a camera like yours truly can afford this without needing to come up with creative excuses to justify the cost to the better half. Get this, take photos, capture memories and be happy.

    Awesome Telephoto!

    This has been a great lens to have! It's not the lightest...but the glass is incredible. It's been my workhorse all summer, shooting my sons baseball games. over 120k photos and the only thing I have an issue with is with dust...yes, it is sealed, but somehow the dust has got in. It's a pain...but Tamron offers a 6-year warranty and getting it cleaned is free! Due to Covid19 their 3 day turn around time isn't being offered, but I got my lens back within a 10 days. (the lens I sent had some scratches (my fault) but when I got it back...they were gone! Literally looks brand new across the board! I LOVE that.

    Honestly, I've been super impressed with how great the pictures turn out and how great this product is.

    Compared the Sony glass lens, Tamron is light weight, half the price, offers f/2.8 and is easy to use with Sony E-mount bodies. Your hands will thank you, add the Best Buy protection plan and you don't have to worry about paying out of pocket if damaged for select years of coverage.

  • Review by KBahn, 10 out of 10
    Super sharp fight through the focal range.

    I’ve added this lens to my other 2 Tamron fast zooms - the 17-28 and 28-75 f/2.8, so I now own the “holy trinity”. The Tamron 70-180 has a constant aperture of f/2.8 and is super sharp right through the focal range. Although it does not have image stabilization built in it’s light enough for it not to be a problem if you have IBIS in your Sony camera body. I decided to buy the Tamron range and save the extra cost over the Sony zooms as they are plenty sharp enough for all my needs with both the A7iii and the A7Riii - and I invested the savings in some Sony brand primes.... best of both worlds!

    Great Product… Trash Service

    I returned this because I felt that a rokonin 12mm lens had a bit less fish eye and it could also go down to 1.8f… I wouldnt have done this if this thing attached to more sony lenses but sadly it doesnt attach to many of them.

    (Im very annoyed and disappointed with the Best Buy though because they have a re-shelving fee of around %15… I think I’m gonna start shopping on Amazon a lot more)

    Must buy lense if you have a APS-C Camera!

    I’ve been shooting with my Sony A6300 for 2 years. While I love the flexibility of my telephoto this prime lens is game changing. This lens has rekindled my love for photography. And the images that it produces are awesome. The bokeh is so good. But if you don’t need it the sharpness of my images is awesome.

    It is a little on the big side. Which adds weight. Makes the camera not as pocketable like when you use the kit 16-55mm.

    But I debated on purchasing this lens for a while. And it was well worth the wait. If you shoot on a Sony APS-C this is a must have piece of glass.

    Beautiful Bokeh!

    The Bokeh that the Sigma 16mm produces is absolutely beautiful! Since purchasing my Sony a6400 I’ve been looking for a new lens to add alongside the kit lens. I’ve done a lot of research and this one has been at the top of my list. I was finally able to catch it in stock @ Best Buy and pulled the trigger. Without having built in stabilization, you’ll get you’re best video with a tripod or a gimbal if your camera doesn’t have it. The Sigma 16mm takes excellent pictures day or night with the 1.4 aperture. If you’re looking for a lens that’s great for low light and want to add that bokeh effect to your photos, the Sigma 16mm 1.4 can’t be beat for the price.

    Best 35mm AF Prime on the market if.....

    ....if you get a good copy.

    This is my second copy of this exact lens and I just want to warn everyone that these lenses (this one in particular) have a very high rate of decentering due to poor QA from Sony. Most of these lenses will come misaligned from the factory and most people won't notice it, but for $1,600 this is unacceptable.

    Do yourself a favor and get the lens tested and judge for yourself if the high price tag was worth the shotty QC.

    Read More Here:

    "the 35mm f/1.4 ZA lens is very likely to have some tilt with one corner or side out of the plane of focus. Depending on what you photograph this may make no difference to you, or may be a huge issue. But I doubt sending copy after copy back is going to make much difference (you may trade a soft right upper corner for a slightly soft left side, etc.). We’ve taken a couple of these apart and there’s not a ton of optical adjustments that can be made: there are a set of shims behind the front group that can be modified a bit, but it’s a crude and very time-consuming adjustment, so I don’t think it’s generally going to be something that can be fixed." -Lens Rentals

    Excellent Camera

    Great Camera, OK lenses.

    The camera took a little getting used too since I have full frame NIKON that is heavier then a brick, which I hated lugging around.

    This one is a feather weight and does what I want albeit the sensor is smaller then a full frame, the image quality is excellent. I'd buy it again, minus the kit lenses which I replaced the shorter zoom with Sony's Carl Zeiss, Varo-Tessar E 4/16-70 ZA OSS, which works with a full frame mirrorless camera E mount, with the added benefits of it being lightweight and does not need coverage out to the edge of the lens (smaller CCD then a full frame) thus the edge sharpness is very good.

    I’ve had this camera for a year now. I’m still learning with it but I’ve made huge strides. One year ago I was using a point-and-shoot and a cellphone. I am now shooting images like this using manual controls. I really like the versatility of the 55-210 kit lens but I could pass on the 16-50 kit lens - I was never impressed with the quality of photos it took. This particular shot was with a Samyang 12mm lens that I absolutely love. This is a very powerful camera - if you’re on the fence about getting it...GET IT!

    Love it so far!

    So far this Camera is all that I expected it to be. Very Light and easy to move around. I took this Camera out on a 9 mile Hike and never felt burdened by it. If you're looking for a camera for travel this is it.

    Nice camera

    I have used this camera and lens a few times so far. It is just as expected and takes nice clear photos. I have not used it much for video yet. It was great at football games and with the lens you can get a decent picture of the moon. I did purchase the attachments needed to put it on our telescope for the upcoming lunar eclipse in November of 2021!

    Great starter

    Great camera for a beginner, and very easy to learn with a couple of video if you dont understand anything about photography. If you're looking to do videography however I wouldnt recommend this camera as every upgrade from this one has 4k and a mic input

    I am not wanting the a6300

    I love this camera. I was worried about not waiting for the a6300. But I am more concerned with image quality. From my research they mostly the same in this regards. Yes the a6300 seems to show whites better when you pixel peep but this is not for professional use. I got mine open box and could not justify paying more than twice as much for the a6300. Now would I rather have a6300 of course. But I will wait.

    I sold the included lens and got a 35 mm 1.8 and I tried the 18-105 g for a while but sold that also. I just purchased the 18-200 off eBay. We shall see. I also have the Sony rx100 iv. As my everyday camera. Love that.

    Better than expected!

    Got this for my wife (upcoming Alaska cruise) and she has been obsessed. It is by far better than a typical canon and Nikon dsl. We have experimented with some mountain (blueridge) sessions. It is perfect. I don’t think we will ever stay from the Sony mirrorless brands ever again. Definitely recommend for newbies as we are easily learning. Fantastic. It may be a bigger investment but BUY IT NOW! Do it!

    You know you want it

    As I was researching the pros and cons of this lens, many said what I have now concluded: if you can afford it it's worth it. I'm not sure why it's so expensive but I suspect in the years to come I'll remember the quality of the photos and not the price. It's got a pop, an oomph, a wow that makes me feel like I'm heading in Ansel Adams territory. If you enjoy standard photography and aren't trying to push your photographic skills I wouldn't recommend it. But I'm trying to learn as much as I can and with this tool I feel like I can do many fun things. Sorry for the lack of tech talk but you can find that anywhere. I think it's more of an emotional thing.

    Excellent upgrade to standard kit lens on A6000

    I hike with this as my "one lens," with the 16mm (24mm equivalent on my Sony a6000 APS-C sensor) working well for most landscapes, though occasionally I wish for wider; the 70mm end of the zoom and everything in between are great for framing and closeups. It has an excellent bokeh compared to the kit lens (16-50mm) that came with the camera, very smooth background blur with the shape and number of diaphragm blades.

    Excellent Lens

    I truly love this lens, takes crisp photos. Constant f4 aperture is great. Fast and smooth focusing, completely quiet. Build quality is very good, smooth zoom and focusing rings. This lens is on my a6000 90% of the time. I would wait for the occasional sale, I picked this up for $799 on sale, great deal for this lens. This is a great piece in such a small package, very well balanced on any sony mirror less system.

    Initially was hesitant to purchase the lens considering the price and reviews about some of the pieces having manufacturing defects.

    My copy is very good and gives amazing sharp images. Have not tried other sony similar lens , so can't compare it with other Sony lens.

    Completely UnderRated Lens, Bang 4 your Buck A+

    This is an amazing lens that is completely portable, has great color rendition and is extremely sharp in the center. Optical Stabilization gives you the ability to hand hold in low light for razor sharp images. This 16-50 lens condenses down to pancake size when not in use and can be extended up to 100mm with digital clear zoom, while maintaining excellent image quality. This kit lens will give you outstanding results and an extremely useful effective range of 24-75, the perfect mid range zoom. Don't listen to the negative reviews, this is a quality lens, Sony hit a home run and the upgraded lenses are much more expensive for very little gain in IQ. Use this lens, work on your photography, develop your skill set and THEN go look for new lenses. This could very well be the only lens you ever need on the Sony crop system. Happy shooting

    Take Beautiful Closeups and Macros

    First off, the title shows this is a 2x teleconverter, while the description states this is a 1.4x teleconverter. This is a 2x converter. Secondly, I'm using the teleconverter with the Sony G Master FE 100-400mm which results in 200-800mm focal length. Camera Body: Sony A7ii

    So how much light is lost? My camera shows F9 at 200mm and F11 at 800mm.

    I first tried shooting subjects that were very far away to test the limits of the teleconverter. It's quite a challenge to keep the camera steady and get focused, but it's not impossible. Don't try to photograph tiny birds like swallows that are 30 feet or more away. You'd be asking for too much.

    It's much better to find a subject that is well within reach of your actual focal length or just out of reach. That's where the teleconverter really shines. There's no huge penalty for shooting wide open at 800mm if your subject is in the right range. You will get amazing closeups and if you're into macros you will get excellent detail without having to get very close to the subject. If you're photographing wildlife, this is great since you'll be able to get closer shots without getting physically closer and potentially disturbing your subject.

    I didn't notice any major loss of quality in images. Some images came out soft but this is more of a focus issue. You will find it difficult to lock in focus at times. Overall my images were beyond acceptable. When loading up photographs for editing I don't need to do a major amount of post processing in order to make the shots look good. I'm editing just as I would edit any photo without a converter. You won't be spending a lot of time cleaning up quality loss.

    It's a little pricey, but I'm definitely satisfied. If you have the right expectations you will enjoy using it.

    cheaper than a new lens

    I bought this converter for my Sony Gmaster 70-200 f2.8. I was considering buying the Sony Gmaster 100-400 f4-5.6 but ultimately decided on the 70-200 and then bought the 2x converter. hopefully you realize that the 2x converter causes you to lose 2 stops of light so it turns my f2.8 into a f5.6 when i have it on my lens. if you are outside in sunlight it's not a problem, but indoors with good lighting it hurts but is manageable. in the end it roughly equivocates me owning the 100-400 but at only 20% the cost. this is a good option if you don't want to spend the money on both lenses or if you want to turn your 100-400 into a 200-800 but you probably can only use that in bright sunlight. BE AWARE: this only fits these two lenses that i have referred to here! no other lenses work with it!

    Wow! Former Nikon user

    I was a die hard Nikon user and fan. I switched to Sony and no looking back. I couldn’t get a sharp shot with a Nikon 2x teleconverter on my 500mm Nikkor lens but this Sony TC works wonderful. I can even get it to autofocus for Birds in Flight with my 600mm lens for an equivalent 1200 FOV. Unbelievable how good it is when paired with the A9. Sharp even at f/8.
