m80: These are impressive shots. I do not think this is an expensive way to get that focal length because the TC is always free to use on any other lenses too. It is not like you spent that money for only the 85mm.

Good for you for having the guts to experiment--thanks for sharing the results, you have me thinking.

I'll have to agree. My favorite use for that TC is to couple it with my manual Voigtlander 125mm f/2.5, making me a 212mm f/4.25 -ish lens, oh and it's auto-focus then too! Dare I compare its results to some of the best 200mm lenses out there? ...I dare:

I enjoy all the photos. What excites me the most is that my A 50 f/1.7 is coming in 2 days. And I have both the FA 50 f/1.4 and A 50 f/1.7 to play with the F-1.7x TC. I think the A 50 f/1.7 is well suited for the TC as the TC will turn the FA 50 f/1.4 from full AF into partial AF while it can turn the A 50 f/1.7 from MF to partial AF.

The photos are just stunning. You have shown another unknown version of FA 85mm f/2.8.

Thanks,
Hin

Hin, 50mm f/1.7 + FA 1.7x TC = 85mm f/2.8.
