Yes. That's what I tried first. Changed the EV stops back and forth. Minimum number I get is 6.7
Agreed that it isn't much. But still curious why it happens. Hopefully it isn't a faulty TC. The lens opens till F4.5

Should I flash the firmware again. Just to be sure?
Any one else sees this issue in K5iis? I will try to see if this is seen in other bodies (friend's)

Any idea why? When I paired with 1.4x Pentax with FA*300/4.5 I get max aperture of f6.7. I was assuming I would get f6.3. am I loosing half a stop? Does it matter? Thanks

Guess the confusion is that you had included Sigma 500/4.5 among all APSC gear that you are selling :)
Good luck.

Interesting. But then I too have seen I have to click - to + when mounting Sigma (50-500) after a while. I mean, I had -3 some time back. Recently when I started using it again, I now see i have to use the +5. Not sure if I am making some obvious error somewhere.

Edit: Oops. This is with K-5iis. Forgot it is a different forum.

It is not like there is a lot of demand :) Less supply and lesser demand. So, why the price difference.
As rightly interpreted by @des I meant, even an old Tokina 400/5.6 for K-mount is higher than an equivalent C/N mount :(

The osprey shots are super. So is the flicker. I thought it is some kind of woodpecker, at first.
Which lens is this from? Thanks

Wouldn't a 300+1.4TC get better results at a lower price?
Why Pentax 400 are much more than Canikons?
