digital cameras best photo sharing

A $10,000, 400mm f/2.8 telephoto lens is awesome, but awesome + sauce is getting that same focal-length reach from a 200mm lens that costs around $800, or even from one that costs $5700. Teleconverters, which are produced by all the major lens manufacturers and by noted secondary makers, mount on your camera to attach your lens for increased telephoto reach. Except for a few exceptions, they enable either a 1.4x or a 2.0x increase in focal length and, depending on manufacturer and model, they range in price from $50 to $600. There are a few teleconverters for medium format systems that are priced significantly higher, but are still commensurate with the costs of their systems.
