[SOLD] (AUS) The famous Pentax F 1.7x TC

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
(AUS) The famous Pentax F 1.7x TC

Asking Price
US$450 shipped

Item Description
This teleconverter really needs no introduction. Its quality is legendary, and the ability to turn your manual focus lens into autofocus is awesome (of course, this feature is speed dependant).

For sale here is a used Pentax F 1.7x teleconverter in excellent condition - optically perfect.

You know what they look like, so I won't bother with a photo.

NOTE: I am also considering selling my Pentax A* 300mm F4 lens, so if you are interested in getting them both as a package, make an offer (In my opinion, the A* is as good optically as the more recent DA*, but it is much more compact. The only draw-back is that it's manual focus, but couple with this TC, it becomes auto).

Are you the original owner of the item being sold?

I'm open to offers. This is a rare, and amazing, piece of equipment - would go great with the 70-200mm f2.8 lens that many are buying!

This TC is now available for sale (AGAIN).

Despite promises by the buyer, he has gone back on his word. Upshot: you get a second chance to grab this piece of pentax folklore!

It really is an awesome addition to your kit.

Reasonable offers will be considered.

Thanks, Dave

The TC has its own AF mechanism - so the lens needs to be fairly close to in focus manually (as the TC's autoficus range is limited), then the TC's autofocus mechanism gets it spot on.
It works well on any lens f4.5 or faster.
