[SOLD] [Worldwide] Kenko 1.5x Pz-AF Teleplus SHQ teleconverter Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Kenko 1.5x Pz-AF Teleplus SHQ teleconverter

Asking Price

Item Location
Tokyo, Japan

Item Description
Kenko 1.5X Pz-AF Teleplus SHQ Teleconverter

Item condition:
- Used, but practically new.
- No fingerprints, smears, etc. on optics.
- No fungus or fogging on optics. (Internal and external)
- All functions operate normally and smoothly.
- No scratches or rub marks on barrel.
- No visible dust inside the lens, but there may be some if you really look hard for it.

I would rate the overall condition of this converter as near mint. Mechanically and optically sound. This item is virtually mint, used once for testing purpose.

I have described the condition as accurately as possible. You MAY notice other small marks and scratches that I have considered to be insignificant, but please keep in mind that this item has been used and as such, bears the blemishes of its consequences.

Item description:
This converter is suitable for all digital and 35mm film SLR cameras, which has a Pentax K-mount.

- The converter has contacts for auto exposure(AE) and auto focus(AF). It also has contacts for Power Zoom which also powers SDM lenses.
I have read reliable reports that say the SDM lenses works with this converter but I cannot confirm it because I don't own one to test.
- As the name suggests, this converter will increase the effective focal length by 1.5X. For example, if you use it in conjunction with a 200mm lens, then you will get an effective focal length of 300mm.
- Dimensions: 66mm diameter x 23mm long.
- Weight: Approximately 105g.
- As with most teleconverters, it works best with telephoto lenses, both prime and zoom types. Please note that you will loose 1 stop of light when you use the teleconverter. That is, a 200mm F2.8 lens will effectively become a 300mm F4 lens.

Other included items:
- This converter comes complete with both front and rear caps, soft pouch, instruction manual (Japanese), warranty certificate (no warranty), and box as per original package.

I'm new to the forum but not to photography.

I have also started selling some photo gear only recently. Please check my eBay feedback (eBay ID: tom1803). You'll see that whilst I don't have many feedbacks yet, the ones I have received are all positive. My descriptions are accurate and I ship promptly.

I also have a few entries in the Pentax Photo Gallery if you would like to take a look.
