    NEX + LA-EA1 + 2X teleconverter?

    Did anyone ever try this combo?
    I've just bought a 70-300mm macro that would become a 210mm-900mm using a 2x teleconverter over the the LA-EA1. One thing is for sure...this would probably be one tough combo to test your manual focusing skills.

    My experience with 2x converters with digital has mostly been you're just as good off cropping vs. using the converter. Even the expensive "matched" converters don't give you much better sharpness vs. cropping, while CA and bokeh are ususally getting worse.

    On the other hand a high quality or matched 1.4x converter can get you ahead (for instance a Kenko pro 300 1.4x)
