[SOLD] Albinar 2x MF Macro converter Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Albinar 2x MF Macro converter

Asking Price

Item Description
Albinar-ADG 2X Macro Converter. I bought this macro converter from a fellow member of this forum for $35. It was a novelty gadget for me, and I do not need it anymore.

If you slap it behind your 50mm f1.4 lens, you will get a 100mm f2.8 1:1 macro lens. I used it on my FA 50mm f1.4 lens for this purpose. Works well. Sharpness is acceptable. The original rear and front caps were in bad shape, so I replaced them with new generic ones. The front cap says PENTAX .

Are you the original owner of the item being sold?

Are you selling or trading this item?

Additional Details
It is manual focus. Probably the cheapest way to a 100mm 1:1 macro.

Please send me a private message if interested in the item!
