Vivitar Series 1 teleconverter

Vivitar 1.4x Tele Converter for Pentax VIV-1.4X-P

Does anybody have any experience/knowledge of this TC. I can't find any reviews or information anywhere.

Thanks,

Jeff

I bought one last week.

I was using it for the first half of this set. With the DA L 55-300 it isn't too bad, but the Promaster 100-400 had bad fringing.

This set is the 55-300 + the 1.4

AF slows down a bit at 300, but it works.

cool, does this TC have the SDM contacts? I think that is my main question about it, besides the obvious quality issues.

No SDM contacts. It is very hard to find a TC with SDM contacts and they are much more expensive than this one...

Thanks, figured it was too good of a price to have them, but had to find out.
