View Full Version : A95 and 2x teleconverter

With the 2x teleconverter added, will the optical zoom then be 6x (3x * 2x)?

Sorry if this is a stupid question but I am curious. Also, will there be a degradation in picture quality?

The teleconverter only modifies the physical zoom(the optical zoom). Its like having a more powerful lens, so it won't affect the digital zoom and only the optical zoom.

As my name suggests I do not know much and perhaps some of what I am saying is wrong, but I am sure it only affects optical zoom.

The 2x will make the 3x optical = 6x...BUT...because it's on a barrel adapter, you cannot really use the 2x tele at anything other than maximum zoom. If you have the tele on the camera, and zoom the camera out, you will begin to notice the 'tunnel' around the perimeter of the image. So you can have 1x-3x without the tele, and then maybe 5-6x with the tele on. I hope I'm making sense.
