Tele trou­ble

NPhoto - - Letters -

Sorry to go on and on, but… Why is your mag­a­zine telling Brett Camp­bell and ev­ery­one else that ‘Tam­ron doesn’t make tele­con­vert­ers’..? I have had one for my Olym­pus OM-1 for many years and a short search will re­veal that there are cur­rently Tam­ron tele­con­vert­ers avail­able for Nikon and Canon EOS mounts. (Nikon part no. 230FFN).

While Tam­ron used to man­u­fac­ture tele­con­vert­ers, they were dis­con­tin­ued in Europe around five years ago. As far as Tam­ron’s UK dis­trib­u­tor is aware, the tele­con­vert­ers have been dis­con­tin­ued world­wide, and it is pos­si­ble that the US A has the last re­main­ing stock of this old prod­uct. Be­cause of this, the UK dis­trib­u­tor rec­om­mends us­ing Kenko tele­con­vert­ers. (Of course, it’s pos­si­ble to use one of the older Tam­ron tele­con­vert­ers, if you have one, or one by an­other man­u­fac­turer such as Nikon or Sigma, as long as it’s Nikon-fit and com­pat­i­ble with the lens.)

Turn to page 92 to see how a fast zoom plus tele­con­verter com­pares to a su­per-tele­photo lens for shoot­ing sport.

As Tam­ron no longer makes tele­con­vert­ers, its UK dis­trib­u­tor rec­om­mends Kenko ones
