Smcp- da 18-250 tc


Will the SMCP-DA 18-250mm lens handle a 1.5X TC? I'm going to Yellowstone and I will be hiking quite a bit. I don't want to be hauling too much equipment and I want to have my K100D equipped with this lens for shooting a wide variety of subjects. However, I think I will need some extra reach at times and would need a TC for wildlife.

I wouldn't think it'd be pretty. I doubt it would be worth it. If you're looking for reach on the cheap, I'd buy a mirror lens. They're short and fairly light. You can get 500mm for under $200.
