I really like the Kingfisher photo Kjell. Very sharp and great detail.

Those are all great Kjell. I can't believe the results from the 200mm and a TC, I would have guessed those came straight from a * lens alone. The sign is great too.


PS: What 2x TC was that?

Hi Tim!

I have the Pentax Rear Converter A 2X-S. I think it would be hard to find an optically better one. It is fully compatible with A-lenses, but doesn't work with auto focus. I found my on ebay, but haven't seen any for sale for a very long time now.

Scandinavian Photo has it, and it's siblings,listed newat horrendour prices. The siblings are the A 1,4-S (s for short, to be used with lenses up to 300 mm) and the A 2X-L and 1,4-L (L for long, 300 mm and up). I use my A 2X-S with my 600 mm lens without problems. The problem should be vignetting, but the smaller sensor on DSLR takes care of that problem.

I like all of them, but the two bird shots are really well done. The yellow against that light gray background is beautiful!

And I got an opportunity to improve my bird pics - this time bringing my A*200mm and the 2XTC giving me a 400 mm f5.6.

I thought you did not bring in your long glass. 400mm can give you a bit of range. Nice shot of a Kingfisher. We are envious
