Stuck Teleconverter...

Howdi Folks,

not sure if this is the right forum, but need help!!!

Got a Tamron 2x F System BBAR MC7 TC and the camera liked it so much that it doesn't let go.

When I attempt to remove it, it turns part of the way and remains pretty firmly attached.

Any tips? Suggestions? I am willing to risk destroying the TC (but not the camera - K20D)

I"ve used several of the BBAR lenses with no problems - but not the TC. Just in case the AF pin is getting hung up on the TC, you might try putting the camera in MF mode - that retracts the pin - and then try to remove the TC. Good luck.

Thanks! I did manage to disloge it by fiddling with the pin that was accessible from the top end of the TC! Not sure what to do with the thing now. I have some old SLRs I may try it on.
