I've gotten some incredible photos with the lens
The images are very sharp. Great job. What body did you use?

The sensor resolution here is the difference but the question really in this comparison is, does the A400+1.4 rear converter on a k5 IIdeliver more detail than the A400 alone on a K3II and does the K5II sensor low light performance outweigh the need to run higher ISO when using the A400 + 1.4x compared to the A400 alone on the K3II
Since i sold my K-5 II to fund the K-3 II, I didn't have a chance to test the various combinations of gear directly.

IME, there comes a point where if you have to raise the ISO too high to accommodate the use of a TC, you lose the advantages of greater detail capture.
