[SOLD] Kenko 1.5X Pz-AF Teleplus SHQ Teleconverter (NOS) (Worldwide)

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Kenko 1.5X Pz-AF Teleplus SHQ Teleconverter (NOS)

Asking Price
US$149

Item Location
Tokyo, Japan

Item Description
Kenko 1.5X Pz-AF Teleplus SHQ Teleconverter

I have 5 in stock.


Most of you will be aware that this item is no longer in production and that's been the case for several years now. My supply depends on finding merchants that still have old stock. I have exhausted the stock of one supplier and luckily found another, but it's going to cost me significantly more. This is the reason for the price increase. I apologise for any inconvenience caused.


Item condition:
- NOS (New Old Stock), unused but no warranty.

I would rate the condition of this converter as mint. This item is un-opened box, new old stock.


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

- The converter has contacts for auto exposure(AE) and auto focus(AF). It also has contacts for Power Zoom which also powers SDM lenses.
I have read reliable reports that say the SDM lenses works with this converter but I cannot confirm it because I don't own one to test.
- As the name suggests, this converter will increase the effective focal length by 1.5X. For example, if you use it in conjunction with a 200mm lens, then you will get an effective focal length of 300mm.
- Dimensions: 66mm diameter x 23mm long.
- Weight: Approximately 105g.
- As with most teleconverters, it works best with telephoto lenses, both prime and zoom types. Please note that you will loose 1 stop of light when you use the teleconverter. That is, a 200mm F2.8 lens will effectively become a 300mm F4 lens.


Other included items:
- This converter comes complete with both front and rear caps, soft pouch, instruction manual (Japanese), warranty certificate (no warranty), and box as per original package.

See picture below.

Taken without the converter and distance to subject changed to keep the image approximately the same size.



Payment method:
- I can only accept payment via PayPal. Please complete your payment process as promptly as possible to avoid delays in shipping.

- Item will ship from Japan via EMS (Express Mail Service), usually within 2 business days after receipt of payment.
- Item should arrive at your destination in 4~7 days after despatch. However, this is an estimate only and may vary considerably depending on many circumstances.
- I can provide tracking number and web address to check the progress of your parcel.
- Item will be shipped to your PayPal registered address only.

Can somebody who has used this TC with an SDM lens confirm it works? I'm interested in getting one to pair with the DA* 60-250mm I have on order.

Whilst I have no first hand experience with the DA* 60-250mm lens or the Sigma 70-200mm lens, I have had reports back from those that have purchased the teleconverter, that it does indeed work with said lenses.

Works with DA 50-135. Use it more with Tamron 28-75 for near Macro. As good as Tamron 1.4 TC.
