I did some test shots with the Revue 2x TC on the DA*50-135 today and was not happy with the results. I'm not even going to share them.
I suppose on a sunnier day I might have somewhat better results...
back to the lab...


What mode did you shoot in? I would try Av and then regulate ISO until I get a decent shutter time. Until that sunny day comes (Please, send some to Denmark in that event!), you could also try some indoor tests using flash.


But don't expect too much anyway: An 'arbitrary' TC and a modern Pentax zoom may well be far from a "perfect" optical match.........

Hey on the plus side you can always use it as a door stop! That's where my $5 Albinar TC resides.

I actually preferred and used manual setting with specific iso vs auto iso (not sure exactly how they are called).

Thanks all the same. I have found that the 67 200mm F4 works much better with the TC in that the F stop loss is negligible. That will be my next thread

I hope you cleaned off afterwards. There's all kinds of crap on the lens or something.

For real... I was scratching my head over that...
I check all surfaces almost all the time.
Must of missed one. Sorry. :S
