Kenko 1.4 TC controversy???
Jun 1, 2012

Since the German site, Traumflieger published it's resolution test results indicating that the “lower priced” Kenko Teleplus MC4 AF 1.4 DGX not only bested it's more expensive sibling, the “PRO-300l: http://www.traumflieger.de/objektivtest/open_test/telekonverter/overview.php

There has been much “forum chatter” suggesting that the tests were flawed, & therefore invalid.

If, on the other hand, the tests are valid; the only “sensible” reason would be that the additional lens element incorporated in the “PRO-300” to reduce CA effects is a “trade-off” in which “a degree” of resolution is sacrificed.

Most of the Forum conclusions lean toward the “PRO-300” being unquestionably superior to the “MC4”; but they all appear to be based upon a belief that higher cost always equates to superior performance; rather than any definitive image comparisons!

I wondered if anyone has done an actual comparison between the two, or knows of a link to such a test?
