Teleconverters work best with telephoto lenses, but are not brilliant at the best of times.

You could try a 2x converter, but make sure it's a high quality one from a recognisable manufacturer. There isn't a dedicated one for this lens as far as I know.

The difficulty is that it reduces the aperture by 2 stops, so it makes it even more difficult to get the sort of shutter speeds we need for wildlife. You could be much better off using just the prime lens and cropping.

Best regards
