I'm surprised. I was expecting more of a price-gouge than that.

If it's really, really good optically, that's not too bad, given how ridiculous lens prices have become.

Price is about the same as Canon and Nikon offerings, so should be expected really.

Will have to be very good to make me get it though, im not happy with the Pentax 1.7x results most the time!

I think in this instance I may order one from Amazon as they have a 30 day no questions asked return policy.

Seems very expensive for about 1" of product...must have cost all of about 40-50 to manufacture.

You may be right, and expecting to pay 4 - 5 times that it should be maybe 250. Even if you add VAT on top of that it's still 70 more than it should be. Let's see how much the price settles at later in the year...

Just to let you know that SRS now have them in stock? Mine arrived this morning - From SRS via Royal Mail.

Looks well made. Stuck it on the DA 300 and the results look good in camera. Ordered back to work, so no time to post anything.

Retired at last - now all that time for photography - you would think: wink:
