Taken with the DA*300 and the HD-DA 1.4x converter. You have got to love this converter, it is superb.

Are you able to compare it with the 1.7 AF converter?

Unfortunately not, I don't have the 1.7TC. I do have a non-AF Jessops 2x though, which is okay.

I think you want a converter to do nothing more than extend the range - this new one clearly doesn't get in the way at all, its a great sharp shot!

Yes and no, I did want an extender that gives extra reach, yet I want to keep the IQ of a good quality one. Thank god that Pentax has delivered with the first one in 25+ years. The Jessops is okay, just, but no AF (bad)

To say I am delighted with the new converter is an understatement. It is all that I have wanted in a converter.
