Hi tmacdon,

If the teleconverter is faulty, just send it back to me and I'll replace it for you ASAP.

I'm sorry to hear that it's not working well with your gear.

I have the Sigma 70-200 HSMII and the Kenko pzAF 1.5 Teleplus SHQ and can confirm that it does work - sorta. Sometimes it will lock focus quickly, other times it will 'hunt' a lot. Using full time manual over-ride to close focus first helps. Image quality is very good though. HTH

I have this same combination. With my K10d, it does try to AF, but never can lock into correct focus. I winds up a little out of focus. Too much to be usable that way. The TC works great with other lenses including the Tamron 70-200
