Got the Kenko Pz-AF 1.5x Teleplus SHQ DG. Tested with DA*200 and sdm works fine, but it hunts a bit more with tc. You have to hold the lens very still to get focus. I did some quick tests and it doesn't look too bad. It's definitely giving some extra magnification. Have to test some more extreme situations.


Your combo is actually 450mm in film day ( 200mm 1.5 x 1.5 crop factor). Once you get used to long lens, you be ok

You are sure that yours has got a DG there? Can you check

It should be like this

Yes it is DG. The tc has following text on it: Pz-AF 1.5x TELEPLUS SHQ KENKO DG.
DG is with a different font and golden letters after the lens release lever.

Tried a bit more with the focusing. Holding still sure helps the focusing. :P
Maybe with k20d it works better, but it is in repairs for a while.
