Kenko teleconverter

I've only had my k10d for a couple of months, so am learning. I ordered a Kenko 2x teleconverter and received it yesterday. I tried it out on my Pentax DA 50-200mm lens yesterday and wasn't thrilled. Just some quick shots to see what it did. I enjoy doing mostly bird photography on the river. Images didn't seem to focus. So my question -

Am I doing something wrong? I had camera in autofocus, did some manual focusing first. I was just doing hand held photos.

Am I expecting too much? Or should I just send it back and put the money toward a Bigma?

Thanks. Keep in mind that I'm new to this.

Kathy

Hi, Kathy. I think more info is needed: what Kenko, what lens, etc. Generally, TCs come with an IQ price - what were your complaints? I have a Kenko 1.5 Teleplus (AF) and it does well enough but not as well as the Tamron 1.4 or the Pentax 1.7.............

Hi Kathy,
I replied to your thread on the other forum but since you posted here I thought I'd link this thread. https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/pentax-slr-lens-discussion/19694-tamron-t...rter-pics.html

The topic is about a TC with the Tamron 70-300 but it includes lot of useful general infomration about teleconverters as well. I thought you might find it interesting.

Thanks John. Your photos are great. I will definitely be trading my Kenko 2x in, maybe for a Kenko 1.5. I would love to find your Tamron 1.4x, maybe will check out Ebay.
