[SOLD] Pentax F 1.7x AF adapter (New) (Worldwide)

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax F 1.7x AF adapter (New)

Asking Price
US$335

Item Location
Tokyo, Japan

Item Description
Pentax F 1.7x AF Adapter

I have 3 available for immediate shipment.


Item condition:
- Brand new, unused.

I would rate the condition of this converter as mint. This item is un-opened box, never used. This item comes with open warranty certificate, but I'm not sure if Pentax warranty is transferable from the original owner (me). For obvious reasons, I'm unable to supply the original purchase receipt. It would be best to assume that this item has no manufacturer's warranty. I am, however, willing to offer a 30 day money back warranty in the unlikely event that something goes wrong.


Item description:
This converter is suitable for all digital and 35mm film SLR cameras, which has a Pentax K-mount.

This adapter needs no introduction. If you're looking at this listing, you should know all the details already. However, to be fair to the newbies, I will state that this adapter not only works as a 1.7x teleconverter, but it also adapts an older manual focus lens into an autofocus lens. So, in effect, your 50mm f1.4 manual focus lens becomes an 85mm f2.5 autofocus lens!

Other included items:
- This converter comes complete with both front and rear caps, soft pouch, instruction manual (Japanese), warranty certificate (see note above), and box as per original package.

See picture below.

I am a newbie with converter...you're saying that the manual focus lenses will be automatic. Which manual lenses are supported, the A, M or even older lenses?

Adapter itself has an AF mechanism (screwdrive), so the AF works with any lens that has an aperture of f4 or more (I have had reports of f5.6 being OK as well).

One caveat is that the lens will need to be manually focused close to the final point first. The adapter will then AF fine. That is, if you are shooting something that's only a couple of meters away and your lens is currently set near infinity, you will need to shift the focus of the lens closer to minimum focus distance first.

Yes, as Tom spells it out. I bought one off Tom recently, and I find it brilliant. Lens has to be at about F4 but it caused me to hold off selling a couple of M lenses.

I can recommend.
