[SOLD] Pentax Rear Converter-A 2X-S 2X Teleconverter

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax Rear Converter-A 2X-S 2X Teleconverter

Asking Price
$135 US

Item Description
This is the Pentax Rear Converter-A 2X-S (2X Teleconverter). It's used but in Like New shape (KEH rated it "Like New Minus", and if you know KEH's rating system you'll know this means "freakin new! (with no box)"). The exterior has no obvious marks of any kind. The glass is flawless.

This converter has Pentax-A functionality, i.e. it will keep your auto lenses auto-everything except focus. I intended to use it while traveling with my Tamron 70-200 (to leave the Bigma at home) but I find the MF to be too touchy to get reliable results with this lens.

A couple threads discussing this converter (with samples) are here, and here.

Included are front and rear caps (not original).

Does this converter convey all the camera functions to the lens:
- Aperture setting (auto and manual)
- Screw autofocus
- SDM autofocus

I think it will only do the first, right?

That's correct, autofocus does not function with this converter, but auto aperture does (and manual aperture would too - though I never tried that).

If I didn't have one already I'd pick this up. It is handy to use for focus trap since it is not auto focus. It is good tc especially for focus trap work.

Oh Josh, if only the funds were available.

Just a note to potential buyers: Pentax designed this TC to be used with lenses no longer than 300mm, but I'm sure it works fine with 400mm lenses too.
