Users of the Nikon Z system have been waiting on a set of dedicated lens teleconverters (opens in new tab), and now they can extend the possibilities of their current Z Mount lenses with the Nikon TC-1.4x and TC-2x Z. 

Costing $546.95 / £549 and $596.95 / £599 respectively, the new accessories are constructed from textured anodized aluminum, for a true pro feel, and are weather sealed, for protection in harsher environments. This will be welcome for the majority of users, who will likely consist of wildlife, nature, adventure and sports photographers. 

To improve image quality, by reducing contaminants, the glass elements are treated with Nikon’s fluorine coat, which also repels dust and water adhesion. This is applied to both the front and rear elements. 

The Nikon TC-1.4x and TC-2x Z teleconverters are designed for optimal use with lenses such as the Nikkor Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S (opens in new tab)Lens (Image credit: Nikon)

When in use with the teleconverters lenses retain full VR and AF features, while the minimum focus distance of the lens is unchanged, allowing higher magnification of objects in the frame than without the converters in place. 

Nikon promise that the optical design of the TC-1.4x and TC-2x Z significantly reduces some of the common aberrations that can occur when placing extra glass between the lens and sensor, thereby helping to maintain the image quality provided by the top level S-Line Z series lenses.
