Pentax 1.7x AFA & Adaptall 140F teleconverters!

Selling the legendary Pentax AF Adapter 1.7x, but if Adaptall-syle manual focus is your thing, I have a 1.4x Tamron 140F teleconverter for Adaptall-2. I've given up using teleconverters in exchange for a Pentax Q to K adapter and the Q10 with 5.5x crop. So, the TC bargains will now commence!


Tamron-F AF Teleconverter 1.4x Pz-AF MC4 and 2x Pz-AF MC7 - SOLD $300


Pentax-F 1.7x AF Adapter - SOLD $365
This teleconverter is legendary not only for its balance between reach (between 1.4x and 2x) and relative brightness, but also because it ADDS autofocus to manual focus lenses! Yes, you pre-focus with whatever lens is in front of it (MF or AF or SDM, whatever) and then the AF Adapter fine focuses from there using your camera's screwdrive! Focus lock, confirmation, and the adapted aperture are all reported back to the camera. Image quality is a tricky subject with this TC because it magnifies the qualities of whatever lens you put in front of it. While this is true in general with TCs, it is double-true for this one! If your lens is of moderate to poor quality to begin with, images will look even worse, but if the lens is great or excellent (I used a Tamron 300mm/2.8) then the images will continue to shine.



Tamron Adaptall-2 1.4x teleconverter 140F - $75
Wait, you prefer not to use autofocus at all? Do you love all things Adaptall? Into macro or fast long lenses from Tamron? Yes, you know the 140F. This copy is a beauty. Pretty much as close to new as you'll find without being new/old stock! Flawless glass and body, with both original caps and functioned perfectly on both my Adaptall 90mm macro (52BB) and 300mm/2.8 (360B). It lowers the reported max aperture by a stop using a mechanical offset, and has very little if any image degradation on these lenses! Well worth being in the company of the above teleconverters.

BONUS!
New/old stock Tamron Adaptall-2 mount adapter for Nikon AI-E - $45 (or $25 if bought with 140F above)
Brand new, in (kinda beaten up) box, with manual and little plastic baggie. Never been mounted to either an Adaptall lens or a Nikon camera. Apparently it will report and control aperture without needing the "rabbit ears" of other AI lenses. Perfect if you've switched to Nikon and still have your Adaptall lenses for (cough) full-frame!

Tamron 1.4x teleconverter

Hi - I wish to buy this: Tamron Adaptall-2 1.4x teleconverter 140F - $75
I have questions:
Can I use this teleconveter with pentax-k and pentax-m primes 35mm, 50mm, 85mm and up to 300mm?
Do you send to Europe, Denmark and how much is the shipping fee?
Please send a paypal invoice if it is yes to all my questions
Kind Regards
Stefano

The Tamron Adaptall teleconverter is intended for Tamron Adaptall lenses which have interchangeable mounts (Nikon, Pentax, Olympus, etc.) only. It will not work with your Pentax primes! See here for more information on the lenses it will work with.

Well, the Tamon Pz-AF TCs didn't last long, but the Pentax 1.7x "AF Adapter" teleconverter is still available, as well as a gem of a Tamron Adaptall converter and mount!
