Another LB addict

I just placed an order for a DA* 60-250mm f/4.0, Kata 467 bag, some ND filters, ...
All this I pretend to use on my trips next year to couple of national parks in Chile and Machu Picchu & lake Titicaca in Peru.

My wife said, I'd better visit a shrink to stop purchasing photogear

But I'd still like to have a good SDM capable 1.4x/1,7x teleconverter.
Any ideas?

She might be right, and it would probably be cheaper! Kidding aside, I am guessing if you're buying the 60-250 it wasn't between the lens or dinner on the table either, so enjoy it thoroughly, like a nice steak, haha.

I'm spending the last bucks of the company's bonus from last year that was paid between June and December this year. That's extra income, I will not have available next year.

There is the Tamron 1.4x TC that is SDM capable, but this doesn't guarantee a reliable AF function with your 60-250. If you can find one in a shop, I'd bring your camera and 60-250 along to test it out with the combo.
