    The x1.4 is pretty much always OK and will give good results; the loss of contrast can easily be pulled back in post.
    see HERE and HERE

    The x2 tele is problematic unless you have a really good lens but again contrast can be pulled back in post.
    See HERE

    The lens is crucial and IMO you need a good prime to make them worthwhile.

    Sony teleconverters are compatible with the following lenses.
    Minolta - AF 200 F2.8 G
    Sony/Minolta 300mm F2.8 (SAL-300F28G)
    Sony 135mm F2.8 [T4.5] STF (SAL135F28)
    Minolta - AF 400 F4.5 APO G
    Minolta - AF 600 F4 APO G

    Sony 70-200mm F2.8G (SAL-70200G)
    Sony 70-400mm F4-5.6 G SSM (SAL-70400G)

    They may work with other third party lenses, I can't say.
    Thanks for the advise, I've found a place that lets me rent them so I'll trial the 2x first and see what I think if it, looking at the photo you've attached I'm impressed with the quality.
    I'll probably use the Sigma 2x as I have a Sigma zoom and they are cheaper, but I'll do some homework on both (Sony & Sigma) untis before taking one out for a trial.

    Yes hindsight, those above cars are very rare and have huge racing pedigree in Australia (basically won everything for the next 5 years), in 2001 you could buy one for around AUD$50,000 - $60,000, just before the GFC hit they were selling for AUD$900,000 today they've returned to a more "respectable" AUD$400,000 - $500,000
