Small stuff in my own backyard
Lens: SMC-F 50mm f1.7 + Kenko Teleplus 2X macro converter Camera: K-5 
Posted By: newmikey, 07-07-2013, 03:22 PM

Picked the Kenko 2X macro converter up last week in a shop in Innsbruck, Austria, for an incredible 25 (ca. $30) looking like it is NOS - basically new. KAX so full Av or Tv exposure control and it really does a nice job with the 50mm on it. Even with the 2 stops loss, the viewfinder image remains nice and clear, thanks to the basic F1.7 of the 50mm.
