Item Description
Focal 2X MC Teleconverter with Pentax A-style contacts - $15 + Actual Shipping

For sale is a Focal brand 2X teleconverter in excellent condition. Comes with both caps. The front cap has a few marks on it, but other wise the teleconverter itself is in great cosmetic and working condition. Elements are clean and is completely free of dust and haze. The teleconverter has the "A" contacts, so you can use the converter and lenses without having to resort to the Green Button, "stop-down" metering method.

I've used this converter a few times with good results using prime lenses. I'll be honest, I hoped for better results pairing it with my DA 55-300, and I did get a couple so-so images, but the loss of light on a slow lens like that one makes manual focusing a bit difficult. A medium telephoto like the A 200mm or M 150mm is really your best bet for quality and speed. I've had my fun experimenting with this little guy, now I'll give someone else a try!

I believe this model is just a re-branded version of the Tokina EL or Soligor C/D 4 2X found in the 3rd Party reviews. It's definitely NOT the same as the Focal 2X found in the reviews, as that one is physically taller and lacks the "A" contacts.

I'm quite sure you're right -- I added a review for this TC under the Kenko 2X KAX Teleplus MC4 Lens Reviews - Miscellaneous Lenses - Pentax Lens Review Database listing, yet another branding of the same unit. 4 elements, the 6 A contacts plus the Ricoh contact. I find my copy gives reasonable results with certain lenses, and this is also a unit where you can quite easily remove the glass to get a 25mm A-type extension tube.

I never got a response. You're selling to someone else?

You should have received a response to your PMs the same day you sent both of them. The short version is, I was waiting for the first responder to confirm he was fine with the shipping cost.
