Digital Camera World Verdict

There’s a lot I like about the Fujinon XF1.4X TC WR. It’s a super-small and lightweight teleconverter that’s well made and delivers good performance. And the biggest pull is that it saves space as well as money, compared with buying an extra telephoto lens.

As its name implies, this 1.4x teleconverter is designed for Fujifilm X-mount mirrorless cameras and has an up-market WR (Weather-Resistant) construction. It aims to be one of the best teleconverters available to photographers and is compatible with some of the best Fujinon X-mount telephoto lenses. If you’re wondering if your lens is on the hit list, check out Fujifilm’s official teleconverter and lens compatibility chart.

The teleconverter comes with a standard rear cap and a domed front cap, the latter to protect its protruding internal section. (Image credit: Matthew Richards)

The Fujinon XF2X TC WR gives you double the magnifying power for greater telephoto reach but with two f/stops of aperture reduction rather than just one.


If you have a medium format Fujifilm camera, rather than an APS-C model, look no further than the Fujinon GF1.4X TC WR teleconverter.
