help needed / Ricoh style pin

Hi Folks,

I got an Albinar teleconverter. I am planning to use it on my K20D and DA*50-135mm. I want to make sure that it does not have any pin / contact that will get stuck on the camera. I am attaching a pic of the TC.

Would someone please verify that it is okay to use this on a K20D. If there is a Ricoh style pin, which one is it?

Thanks a lot.

Subho

The location of the Ricoh pin is circled in red.

From your photo, I'm not sure what that is to the lower right of the pin.

Edit: Is it an allen/hex head screw?

Just in case, you need a solid screwdriver; the thin metal ones are a pain to use - unless screws are not too tight, look for something with a big handle. You can even grind off the screw's pattern if you don't do it right from the first couple of times.
