Re: Is Kenko 1.5 a Rebranded Tamron?

Hi Ron:

Is it a possibility that the Kenko 1.5 XTC was made by Tamron? I just purchased the Kenko this week as my Tamron 1.4 has been slow to focus.

Today PF member "traderdrew' wrote in regards of the Kenko 1.5X:

It is the same teleconverter branded as vivitar 1.4x. I tested both on a tripod.

That is what I replied to him:

Vivitar Series-1 1.4x is re-branded Tamron 1.4x Pz- with no PZ contacts implemented. The real magnification of both is 1.34X. If you are saying that Vivitar is also identical to the Kenko 1.5x, it means all three are the same re-branded TC.
