XF2X TC teleconverter problem/question

Recommended Posts

Hello XFFs 

 

I use a Fuji X-T2 and I've had the 50-140 2.8 for a couple years and love it.    I recently picked up a used copy of the XF2X TC teleconverter over an internet transaction.   It arrived today, I popped it on the body, mounted the 50-140 and when I turned it on, the LCD started flashing and the camera was clicking.  

 

I was disappointed until I remembered that the 50-140 needed a firmware update to operatewith with the TC, so I downloaded and applied the update (1.00 -> 1.21)  to the 50-140 lens but the problem persists!  In my head I vaguely remember there might have been a need to apply the firmware updates in a certain order, but I'm not sure and web searches have not been helpful. 

 

Did I get screwed on a dud TC by an internet scoundrel? Or am I just missing something obvious?

If it still does not work, the tc is probably defective

 

Confirmed this is the case -- on very close inspection, one of the connector pins is slack.    But the seller agreed to return/refund.  Whew!!    Thanks for replying!

Glad I read this.  I have the 50-140 Zoom which I love, and have been looking for a pre-owned 1.4 TC but have found none for sale (although I've only been looking for a few weeks).  After reading this I think I'll bite the bullet and buy the TC new.  I assume that few that own the 1.4 TC part with it.  I've heard mixed reviews about the 2.0 TC with either the 100-400 or the 50-140 and the 1.4 TC seems to get unqualified great reviews from those that use it.

I got rid of my 2x tc because it made the 100-400 far too soft at the long end. The 1.4x works really well with my 100-400 and also the 80mm macro.
