DA* 50-135/2.8 along with the F 1.7x converter?

Hi all,

Is there any Pentax shooters out there who has tryed this combination? I often feel i want more mmīs than 135, but i donīt want to buy the DA* 200 or 300 cause of the money and the fact that they are primes. The DA* 60-250 is far to big and I dont like teleīs who expand when zoomed. Third-part lenses is not what i want, either.

That leaves me with the following questions, will the F 1.7x teleconverter work properly with the DA* 50-135?
Is there anyone here who has tried that combination?

Best Regards, Fredrik

Hi, I have used a x2 Kenco teleconverter on mine, just playing around etc. Lost autofocus because of that as it's is hunting all the time. BUT, the picture quality was still amazingly sharp. Hope my 2cents worth helps a bit. Cheers.
