The last 3 copies had been sold for 380 US dollars roughly over 6 months or so. This is in deed a good teleconverter unlike the 3rd party ones.

It is reported to perform AF accurately only within near-focus distance. The compromise of image sharpness is a lot less than tamron or keno counterparts.

I wished I could own one but I just do not have the money for this teleconverter...

he he I have seen this one but decided not to bid - good for you and me

I would have gone up to 130... if I went for it... but I don't think I'll be buying it anytime soon... just got a 43mm Limited and can't wait for it to arrive

last few weeks this TC went for more than 150, I have seen it go for 180, highest so far... but I would anticipate it will go higher still
