[SOLD] Pentax SMC-A 2x L Rear Converter - Like New Condition

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax SMC-A 2X-L Rear Converter - Like New Condition

Asking Price
$245 USD

Item Description
Pentax 2X-L Teleconverter – in “Demo" (better than LN) condition. Includes locking front cap and rear cap, plus Pentax lens bag (S80-120 pouch) and original box. Only the box is beaten up a tad.

Images available upon request - will add them tonight if needed. Several of you know that have bought from me in the past know that I stand by my descriptions of the condition of the items I sell.

Asking $245 shipped. Normally this TC will only works with specific lenses 300mm+ due to the front element protruding - the front element protrudes about 3/4", or ~1.9cm.


"Note: Due to the high-quality design of this converter (6 elements/5 groups), the teleconverter will only fit and work with a select range of lenses. Only the following lenses are compatible:
SMC-FA* 200mm f/2.8
SMC-A* 300mm f/2.8(*)
SMC-FA* 300mm f/2.8
SMC-A* 400mm f/2.8(*)
SMC-A 500mm f/4.5
SMC-F* 600mm f/4(*)
SMC-FA* 600mm f/4
SMC-A* 600mm f/5.6(*)
SMC-P 1000mm f/8
SMC-A 1200mm f/8
SMC-A 135-600mm f/6.7
SMC-F* 250-600mm f/5.6
SMC-FA* 250-600mm f/5.6
SMC-P 400-600mm f/8-12
SMC-A Macro 200mm f/4

(*) Note: Fits, but better performance can be achieved with other versions.

NB: I've used it with my FA* 300/2.8 with no issues, and it's not in the above list. I suspect a few other lenses can be used, but it's a protruding front element on this TC. Your lens' rear element must be recessed enough to allow this. The front element OF THE 2X-L protrudes about 3/4", or ~1.9cm.

Regards,
Marc

Additional Details
The Pentax SMC-A 2x L Rear Converter (also known as a tele-extender) is designed to fit on select Pentax 35mm "long" lenses. The converter will multiply the focal length of the existing lens by 2x, and will cut back the amount of light by 2 f/stops. For example, using a 2x teleconverter with a 300mm lens will effectively increase the focal length to 600mm. A lens set to f/2.8 will now be f/5.6.

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