Makinon 2x teleconverter

Picked up a cheap converter the other day, and got the chance to use it over the 4th.

Pretty sharp, I thought. This was about 6 feet away with a 75-205mm lens. The bokeh is odd, somewat, but not unbearably so.

A bird about 60 feet away, same lens. Cropped a bit to shift the bird left.

Not bad. I got the 2x and an M 50mm F2 for $30 shipped. Will sell my spare 50mm and end up with a great deal.
