Tamron 1.4x AF PZ MC4 Teleconverter Test Shots
Got out today to test the tele-converter.
Both shots below are 100% crops, shot handheld with a k20d, DA*50-135 SDM@135mm ,Aperture-priority AE, F2.8. NO Post Processing, converted dng to tiff with Lightroom. Repeat, Sharpening set to Zero, Noise Reduction Set To Zero(best for comparison, shots with sharpening look considerably better).
Used my feet to try and get bricks the same size.
There is a barely perceptable softening with the TC and it cost an f/stop, but I think I am going to be happy using it till I can afford a DA*300 F4 SDM.
Shot 1 without TC @1/160 sec.
Shot 2 with TC @ 1/60 sec.
