Kenko TelePlus Pz-AF 1.5x Teleconverter Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Kenko TelePlus Pz-AF 1.5x Teleconverter

Asking Price

Item Location
Golden, CO (United States)

Item Description
Kenko Pz-AF 1.5x Teleplus SHQ Teleconverter for Pentax K

This one has the contacts to make it compatible with SDM and HSM lenses

This item is used but in great condition (see the photos). It ships in the original box and includes both end caps.

It appears identical to the Tamron 1.4x, right down to the color of the multicoating. I'm not sure why one is marked 1.4x and the other 1.5x.*

I've used this TC on my Pentax K20D, K-7, and K-5 along with my Pentax DA* 50-135mm SDM, Pentax DA* 300mm SDM, Sigma EX 70-200mm HSM, and most recently Pentax DA* 60-250mm f4. It drove the SDM/HSM autofocus on all combos.

Note: I make no guarantees as to how well it will focus with any body, lens, or combo. There were times when using the longer lenses under less than ideal conditions that it would hunt a bit. It would always get close, but sometimes would take several shutter half-presses to lock focus, and in limited cases it continued to hunt. On the lenses I used, I was able to adjust final focus manually if needed. If you read review and comments on this TC, this is a common experience and doesn't necessary indicate a defect.

These teleconverters are increasingly difficult to find. I just picked up the Pentax 1.7x AF Adapter and need to recoup some of those costs.

Shipping to locations in CONUS will be $11, insured. PM me for costs to other locations. Please include city, and country info.
