What is also of interest is the macro focusing 2x teleconverter, especially if it is a PKA mount not PK. It is unique because it has a focusing helicopter with if I recall correctly either 25 or 50 mm off extension capability, which turns a 50mm normal lens into a 100mm macro with 1:1 capability,

I have seen it with The contacts for KA mount but I only have the Kversion myself
Oh wow, I totally overlooked that on the list. Lowell is right. That thing is pretty cool. I used to have one, but sold it years ago and I've kicked myself ever since. Pair it with one of those 50mm lenses and you'll have an uber-cheap macro set-up.

As you have plenty of manual lenses you should check out catch in focus. It's like manual AF
Will do, thanks! I don't think I ever stumbled into this feature with my Kr.

I'm pretty curious about this one as well, looking forward to experimenting. As far as I've been able to work out, it's the same piece that this thread is about:

Awesome! It's been my favorite of the bunch so far even just mucking around with my life-support Kr.
