Pentax A 2XL Question

I currently have a Pentax A 2XL rear converter I'm trying to sell in classifieds. Does anyone know if it can be used with auto-focus lenses (retain auto-focus) ? I know it has "contacts for metering" but that's all I know. I personally don't think so, but I obviously don't know. Any help would be greatly appreciated . Thanks, David I.

I have the Pentax A 2X-S and it does not allow autofocus. It does allow auto metering, though. It is easy to tell, you will see a small recessed screw coupling for the autofocus on lenses that allow it.

The 2X-l is not auto focus capable.
And only used with 300mm lenses or longer.
