Item Description

Use only a couple of times, otherwise in mint condition. Comes with front and rear caps and pouch. This has the contacts and works with SDM lenses, although the focus does hunt. Also works acceptably with my DA 55-300, achieving focus quicker than on my DA* 300.

Recommendation & bump

This item is identical in construction to the Tamron 1.4X Pz-AF MC4 except for the 1.7x factor which I presume is in the optical formula.

It DOES have the SDM/PZ pins.

I've found the Tamron 1.4x version very satisfactory on both SMC primes, and DA and Tamron AF lenses but haven't tried it with SDM lenses. Used in combination with the FA 28-105/4-5.6 it gives me results equivalent to a good DA 50-200 throughout the common focal length range.

I'd highly recommend it at this price for someone looking for a 1.7 AF tele-converter.
