Tamron 1.4x Teleconverter PZ-AF MC4 for Pentax K mount (4 available)

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Tamron 1.4x Teleconverter PZ-AF MC4 for Pentax K mount (4 available)

Asking Price
$225.00 each USD

Item Location
Twin Cities (United States)

Item Description
I have for sale a total of 4 new old stock Tamron 1.4x PZ-AF MC4 Teleconverters in K mount. Asking price is $225.00 each, including shipping/fees.

Normally I only sell cameras and lenses I have used, however I found these at a local auction company and purchased them for resale (thus I have paid for the market reseller fee this month!). These are new old stock from a rural MN camera store where a bunch of inventory was being sold through the auction. I will post photos of them in their box within the next day or two.

I have checked them all over and they are definitely new old stock - they are all boxed with instructions, leather case, original front/rear caps and wrapped with a silica gel pack. I will be removing them from the packaging to test to make sure they are functioning via the SDM contacts with my DA* 50-135mm prior to shipping.

Please do your research before purchasing one of these teleconverters! From past experience, they will work with SDM lenses in good lighting conditions, but will tend to hunt for focus indoors or darker outdoors scenes. With that said, these are just about the best teleconverters you'll find optically that are available in K mount (here is a link to the review database).

Additional note: I have tested all 4 of the teleconverters using my k-5 and DA* 50-135mm lens. All 4 functioned as they should, and similarly to my past experience with this teleconverter (and my own current one as well). Testing in indoor overhead room lighting did have some focus hunting, with focus lock found after 2-3 attempts - in better lighting (under the LED light I used below in the photos) focus will lock on the first try with good contrast. As stated above please do your research! These are great teleconverters with high image quality, and good AF in proper lighting.

They are rare to begin with (used) and not available new, so getting your hands on these new old stock TCs is a great opportunity! I have recently sold 2 of these on ebay several months ago as well - both sold within a day for 10% more than I am asking here, and the most recent ebay sale was north of $250.

The asking price is firm.

Shipping to the US is via USPS priority mail insured for US buyers (int'l please see below). I usually ship within 1 business day of payment, however it may be a day or two longer if paid mid-week.

I am open to international shipping at actual cost, please send me a PM with your location and I will provide a quote.

Update with photos:













Are you the original owner of the item being sold?
Yes

Selling

Item Condition (Key)
New (old stock)

Shipping Destinations
Worldwide

Note for int'l buyers: I only ship internationally via USPS Express mail - the flat rates are usually 10-15% more than priority mail, however insurance is significantly cheaper and the actual cost is usually less than $5 difference. Express mail is also better tracked, better proof of delivery and twice as fast. I also ship fully insured, and the package value will be marked at the full value after my costs - no exceptions will be made on the marked value!

Shipping Charge
Included (for US buyers)

Shipping Services
USPS

Accepted Payment Types
PayPal

Return Policy & Additional Details
As with my previous for sale listings, I strive to provide an accurate description of everything I sell. Return will only be accepted if the conditions are found to be inaccurate - no returns are accepted for buyer's remorse! I always ship fully insured and in the event of a claim I will work with the buyer as appropriate (I pack very well, never had a claim in several hundred sales here and ebay - same username). If you have any questions please ask!

Please send me a private message if interested in the item!

Both PMs replied, sale is pending for Lauren! Also, at unp's request I will post photos of the teleconverters this evening (and also do the quick test with my 50-135 to ensure they are properly functioning!).
