Item Description

Vivitar 2x Macro Focusing Teleconverter, PK mount

This is a great device that combines into one unit a high-quality 7 element 2x teleconverter with an adjustable extension tube.

When used with a 50mm lens, it converts the focal length to 100mm and by turning the barrel it extends to allow you to reach 1:1 macro. With the barrel fully retracted, you still have infinity focus -- much handier than simple extension tubes that you'd have to remove if you want to shoot anything beyond macro range.

It's clean -- just a couple of very tiny marks on the barrel, the engraved text is clear and isn't worn, and the barrel rotates and extends smoothly without being sloppy.

The glass is clear and scratch free, no fungus, no haze.

Both end caps (as pictured) included.

Here are some photos of the actual teleconverter, followed by one shot that I took with this teleconverter and my Pentax-A 1:1.7 50mm.

(Note: it's PK, not PKA so lenses become manual aperture control. For macro that has never bothered me in the least.)

more pix taken with Viv 2x MFTC

Here are some more pix I snapped using this macro focusing teleconverter, with a Super Takumar 50mm/1.4 (using an M42/K adapter) ... all taken with K10D and off-camera flash.

If anyone would like to see full-size versions of these, just let me know and I'll try to find someplace to upload them.
