Item Description
This is a Pentax k-mount rear converter. I had a hard time finding this and I purchased it to go with my DA*200mm lens and it has worked well for me but I am selling my DA*200 so I will wont have any lens compatible with this converter anymore. Comes with front and rear caps, packaging will not be the original but generic cardboard box with good padding. Feel free to ask any questions you might have and thanks for looking,
Grant

I found the combination to be a good fit. I have owned the converter for less than a year and am selling it for two reasons: one I have a 60-250 paired with a 1.7x teleconverter that works nicely and two, I need to raise some cash and have to get rid of duplicate lens setups and the 60-250 is more versatile. Before I bought this converter I was worried about manual focusing and my ability to do it well. I used the DA* 200mm and the 2x rear converter with the "catch in focus" feature you can enable in your camera and found it to work well. I did not use the combination a lot, but was happy with it when I did. Here is a shot I got by sneaking up on a mountain goat. I was hiding behind a basalt outcrop and some dried up bunchgrass (it was February on the breaks of the Grande Ronde River in eastern Oregon).

And by the way Barbarosa, I have the DA* 200mm lens that I used with it for sale if you are in need of one.

it seams OK combination judging by this image. I would gladly buy da*200 but at this moment time is problem, if we agree that time is money so that have to wait a bit.
