Extend your reach. Lighten your load.
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.
40% more reach. 100% resolution.
The lightweight, compact Z TELECONVERTER TC-1.4x increases the native reach of compatible lenses by 40%—without any loss of resolution and with outstanding image quality. You might already be approximating this effect with in-camera cropping, but that cuts out over 50% of your image sensor's pixels. With the Z TELECONVERTER TC-1.4x, you can achieve those tight compositions with the full resolution of your sensor by shooting in the native image area of your camera.
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.
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.
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.
Added depth and impact.
NIKKOR Z lenses create some of the most beautiful bokeh effects imaginable. The Z TELECONVERTER TC-1.4x enhances these effects by reducing the depth of field by 30%. This separates your subject from those creamy backgrounds even more, so you can draw attention where you want it to be. Ideal for portraits and wildlife.
Ready for tough conditions.
Teleconverters often need to be taken on or off in the heat of the moment when working in the field. The Z TELECONVERTER TC-1.4x is built for these moments. It has an anti-slip knurling tread for improved grip. It has Nikon's proprietary non-stick Fluorine Coat on the front and rear elements to make cleaning a breeze. And it has dust and drip sealing equivalent to that of an S-Line lens, ensuring your gear is ready for the toughest conditions.
