    Will a Kenko pro 300 1.4 Teleconverter work on sigma 105mm macro???

    Ive googled like crazy and cant find an absolute answer. I found a kenko compatibility pdf form http://www.kenkoglobal.com/pdf/TELEP...bilityList.pdf , and has a warning that kenko tel could stuff up the camera or lens if put on the wrong/ non adaptable lens( tammy or siggy). But I have come across posts with people using it with other siggys just not the 105 macro siggy. I have come across one post with someone saying it stuffed up 2 of his cameras ( focusing issues I think ).
    reason Im looking at the Kenko is that it will fit my (future) Nikon 70-200 f4 as well.

    Cheers

    Kenko??? I have enough trouble figuring this out with a Sigma converter for all my Sigma lenses!!!
    Do a Google search on "Sigma 105 and kenko teleconverters" and you get 1000 other answers.

    Certainly, there is a minor issue when using BOTH Sigma conponents, as seen here: http://www.sigmaphoto.com/teleconverter-compatibility

    Can you take your lens to a store and try (gently) to attach it?

    Let us know how you go.

    I use a Kenko 2X converter on my Sigma 150mm Macro lens on my Canon, but I guess that isn't very helpful.

    The Kenko converters seem to have a deeper "hole" on the lens side, so they accept more lenses than some other converters.
    Best thing is try one on at a shop.
    All my photos are taken with recycled pixels.
