    Hi
    I was thinking that my SEL50 is the best and fastest prime lens I have. I was wondering if there is a good or very good teleconverter that would allow me to go to 100mm even though I would be losing one or two stops light. That was I would still have autofocus and a reasonably fast tele lens.

    IS there something like that?

    Regards

    I don't know of a TC for this lens. However I am successfully using a Kiron 2x TC with Minolta MD 50/1.7, with good results. No AF but the IQ on Minolta is comparable to Sony, and both the lens and TC sell for relatively cheap.

    You can use the vcl-dh1758 it works on all lenses and you do not lose light and auto focus. I used it for my daughter's basketball games. Check eBay ad it is discontinued

    last one is superb... but still I need to know how good this teleconverter would work with my SEL50. I want to do indoor photography so the 55210 will not work..

    Sorry, I wasn't very helpful in providing samples of this converter on the SEL50F18.
    I just was looking for availability and price.
