PLx Extender Compatibility

The PLx Extenders have been designed for AbelCine by IB/E Optics to be compatible with a wide range of PL-mount lenses. This chart lists zoom and prime lenses that have been tested with the PLx2, PLx1.4 and PLx1.4 Mark II. Keep in mind that if the maximum aperture of a lens is greater than the maximum input aperture of an adapter it will need to be stopped down to achieve a usable image.

PLx Extenders are compatible with almost all cameras whose sensor fits within the extender's Minimum Image Circle Projection. For non-PL mount cameras, the appropriate Universal Mount System (UMS) mount will be necessary. The UMS allows quick and easy changing of camera mounts on an IB/E Optics lens adapter.

PLx2 2x Extender

  • Minimum Image Circle Projection: 32mm
  • Maximum Input Aperture: f1.8


PLx1.4 Mark II 1.4x Extender

  • Minimum Image Circle Projection: 34.5mm
  • Maximum Input Aperture: f1.6


PLx1.4 1.4x Extender

  • Minimum Image Circle Projection: 34mm
  • Maximum Input Aperture: f2.8


Below is the list of zoom and prime lenses that have been tested with PLx extenders. It is updated as we conduct more lens tests.

Tutorials & Guides
Recently, I had the opportunity to test the new PLx1.4 Mark II extender from IB/E Optics. Just like the Mark I, it extends the focal length of your lens by 1.4x, and only loses one stop of light in the process. It also has an image circle of up to 34.5mm, which means it can resolve up to 6K, on the RED EPIC DRAGON for example.
