HI all. Sorry if this has been covered before, but does anyone use this converter on the Sigma 150-500. Attached to K3-ii. Thanks in anticipation.
Just passing thru

Below is what I initially wrote, but have just checked my TC and it is the Tamron 1.4x Pz-AF MC4 version. I think its much the same converter though.

Well I could do as I have both, but 500mm is more than enough for me not to need a TC with it. Do you wish something testing?
If it's, 'does the focusing works through the TC's power contacts,' yes it does. Can't check with a K3ii specifically though as I missed that variant out but can't believe that would be an exception!
Unlike the Pentax converter, the Kenko doesn't report the adjusted focal length.

Pentax SR isn't any use on long lenses so what it reports is of no use.

Half Man... Half Pentax ... Half Cucumber

Pentax K-1 + K-5 and some other stuff
