Item for Sale
Kenko 1.5X Pz-AF Teleplus SHQ

Item Description


Very nice condition, and works with SDM lenses. A couple of attempts may be required to lock focus, but I've used this with success on my DA*300. There are some questions as to which Kenko TC works with the DA* lenses—this one does.

Thanks for the bump, Russell. I'm selling this to pay for the Bigma I've acquired, but I haven't shot with the Bigma enough to say it's markedly better than the DA*300 + the Kenko. The zoom on the Bigma comes in handy, but the 300 + this Kenko is a good combination. If it doesn't sell, it'll find a good spot in my bag.

How would a tele liek this work with an NON sdm type lens (ie. sigma 100-300mm)
Might seem like a silly question, but just want to make sure the extra contacts would not get in the way

Yes, it works just fine with traditional screw-drive lenses. I believe the contacts that let it work with SDM lenses were intended for the power zoom feature of earlier designs. I think Pentax just co-opted the contacts when the SDM lenses were designed. The TC retains the auto-focus and auto-exposure features of the lens in use. The only thing that doesn't get handled properly is the focal length for the shake reduction. Your camera will see the original focal length of the lens in use, so SR is marginally less effective, unless there's a contact pin that can be taped off to trick the camera into asking you to input its focal length. That's how the Pentax AF converter works, I wish Pentax would somehow let users override the focal length input, it would be handy.
