I have no connection with this company, but I have bought from them in the past and I have found them to be excellent.

They have just taken in a number of excellent condition Pentax K lens, including the "Hollywood" 28 f2 and a 30mm f2.8, some of these have just been listed on Ebay, so may go quickly, but others have not yet made it onto their web site.

Here's the list I received a few minutes ago......

The Pentax KA 2-Xs Rear Converter A. Mint condition, with caps. m- 69 is a good deal.

I have used mine with a DA*300 many times with excellent results - it may not be AF but is that an issue?

IMO the Pentax A series converters still hold up as some of the best quality converters around, okay they are not AF, but the primary consideration is usually quality when trying to increase the effective focal length of a lens

Beautiful images! How is it now? Were you able to use it properly. I'm interested with this camera so I wish I will be able to purchase one in the future. The price is quite high but sure worth ti!

Looks like someone has snapped up the lot, can't see any of them listed.

No - I told him I would list them on the forum before he puts them on the website, if there's anything you're interested in send him an e-mail or give him a call !

I thought it would be advantageous to both him and us to do this! He has listed 2 of the lenses on Ebay (the K28/2 and the K30/2.

The K28/2 has now sold (just as I was about to buy it ) - it's one lens I should never have let go of !

Thanks Lenny, they seem nice folks to deal with.

Don't anyone bother ringing them for that 2x-s converter though

It's a superb converter - not popular nowadays because it's not AF

Hope you enjoy it and I'm glad I could help
