I am looking for Pentax HD DA 1.4x teleconverter to extend my DA*300 when I go on holiday in March.
Does anyone have one for sale or have any experience of this particular combination (I gather that some converters do not match well with particular lenses)

I wouldn't sell mine but as for experience in using the DA300mm and converter I would have to say this lens was the main reason for producing the 1.4x as they are a perfect match IMO.

Works ok on the 60-250mm as well

Hi Egret

I agree with Mike and I have this combination. Please forgive me for missing focus on the Bird's Eye, but I think the image below demonstrates how good the DA*300 and 1.4 TC combination is.

I have sourced a converter, many thanks to all for the helpful suggestions / comments and for the offer for sale.
It is so useful being able to speak to people who have used this kit

Congrats

If you don't mind me asking, how much did it cost you?

The converter I thought I had found turned out to be a scammer (on Gumtree, not on this site I hasten to add)

So still looking
