Item Description
The Pentax Rear Converter-A 1.4x-L is a professional-quality teleconverter designed for only a small number of lenses.

Features of this teleconverter:
Super Multi Coated (SMC) optics
Manual Focus
Has electrical contacts to support auto-aperture (Tv or P) exposure modes in addition to M and Av
The converter does not transmit focal length and MTF information from lens to camera
Designed to provide superior image quality on tele lenses 200mm and above
Front element measures ~ 3.5cm in diameter and protrudes ~ 2 cm

Supported Lenses:
SMC Pentax-DA* 200mm F2.8
SMC Pentax-FA* 200mm F2.8
SMC Pentax-A* Macro 200mm F4
SMC Pentax-A* 300mm F2.8
SMC Pentax-FA* 300mm F2.8
SMC Pentax-A* 400mm F2.8
SMC Pentax-A 400mm F5.6
SMC Pentax 500mm F4.5
SMC Pentax-F* 600mm F4
SMC Pentax-FA* 600mm F4
SMC Pentax-A* 600mm F5.6
SMC Pentax 1000mm F8
SMC Pentax A* 1200mm F8
SMC Pentax 135-600mm F6.7
SMC Pentax F* 250-600mm F5.6
SMC Pentax FA* 250-600mm F5.6
SMC Pentax 400-600mm F8-12

This teleconverter is NOT compatible with the SMC Pentax-DA* 300mm F4 and the SMC Pentax-FA* 300 mm F4.5 lenses due to the protruding front element.

As you can see in the pictures, there are a couple of engravings on the body but they are very light and don't affect operation at all. Optically, this converter is quite perfect. It comes with both caps. I simply don't need it anymore. PM me if interested.

Well, I'm using it with the SMC Pentax-A 1:5.6 400mm lens with very good results. The lens might be for sale too. I want to get probably a Sigma 150-500mm lens. If your K lens has a big hole in the rear, let's say 20 mm deep , it should work fine.

How about a Vivitar 200mm f3.5 lens? Will it work with this lens?

Frankly, I don't have a clue. Looking at the description of the converter, you see that there is a 35mm wide by 20mm deep protuberance that goes into the lens. If your lens has a similar hole, then it should work. Look at the picture to see what I mean.

35mm wide by 20mm deep
I don't know. I don't have a ruler that will tell in metrics. But measuring it by inches the depth is 1.5 inches.

The depth is 3/4 inch and the width is 1.4 inch.

The rear element on my Vivitar is 1.5 inches deep with 1 3/8 inches wide. So this should fit. Did you read the PM I sent you?
