For those who look to the distance—birders, nature and wildlife photographers, aircraft, sports and action photographers—a teleconverter can be the difference between a hit and a miss. And the difference between a long, heavy rig and a shorter, nimble one. Optimized for the compact mirrorless Z system, the Z TELECONVERTER TC-1.4x increases the reach of compatible lenses by 1.4x (40%) while retaining 100% resolution, AF and VR functionality, minimum focusing distances and weather-sealing.
Use every focus point.
Like so many aspects of the Z system, the Z TELECONVERTER TC-1.4x defies traditional limitations. It can use every focus point of your Z series camera's sensor all the way down to f/11, unprecedented for teleconverters. Quickly acquire subjects at the edges of the frame and track them throughout your view.
AF accuracy may decrease and focusing speed may lower according to subjects and shooting situations.
Forget it's even there.
On a compatible Z lens like the NIKKOR Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S, the Z TELECONVERTER TC-1.4x retains all AF functionality and speed, VR capabilities and minimum focusing distance, with only 1 stop of light loss and very little weight or length gain. The lens' illuminated information panel will even display the correctly converted focal length when using the Z TELECONVERTER TC-1.4x. This is a perfect pairing.
Make a big deal of little things.
The Z TELECONVERTER TC-1.4x can turn a telephoto lens into a macro-style powerhouse. It maintains the close focusing capability of NIKKOR Z lenses while enlarging the reproduction ratio by 1.4x that of the main lens. When used with NIKKOR Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S, for example, you can zoom in to 280mm from just 3.28 feet away to reveal the tiniest details.
