As in the title im looking for either of these teleconverters. So as not to waste anyone's time. I'm willing to pay up to 140 including RMSD for the 2x version and 210 including RMSD for the 1.4x. I will be paying via paypal using a credit card, so it will have to be for business or services (rather than gift) and i will pay the fees.

Thanks, Neil.

Hi Neil - Are you wanting these for use with a specific lens?

Hi Lenny, yes its for a Tamron adaptall 400mm f/4. After a little research, I believe the protruding element will fit in this model lens, and being a long MF prime ive come to the conclusion, this will be my best option to teleconvert his lens?

Thanks, Neil

I don't have personal experience of the Tamron but I do know that the Pentax A 2x-S is pretty much on a par with the L version with 300mm lenses. If you can pick up an A 2x-S it will be a lot cheaper (I've seen them go for under 50 ) and may well be as good. If I get time (and good light) I'll do a quick comparison of the L and S on my Pentax 400 and let you know what if I can see any notable difference.

That would be brilliant, thank you very much!

I have the 1.4xL and 2xL for my 250-600mm f5.6. I tried the S converter and it's not as good (on this lens at anyrate.). I would probably let the 2xL go as it's more or less unuasable on a 5.6 lens unless the light is exceptional.
