Optics and accessories manufacturer Kenko has announced a new pair of teleconverters. The new models, which are a part of Kenko's Teleplus HD Pro series, are a 1.4x and 2x converter designed for Nikon F and Canon EF full frame cameras and lenses.

Kenko says the optical construction of the converters has been redesigned and the converters now contain more elements and improved coatings to reduce internal reflections.

Contacts on the converters support communication between the camera and the mounted lens so EXIF data can take into account the effect of the converters when the focal length and aperture values are recorded.

Available now, the Kenko Teleplus HD Pro converters will cost $249/£219 (1.4x) and $299/£269 (2x). For more information see the Kenko website.
