Default Dimage 7hi teleconverter

Hey guys....Can someone help me get some information on 2x Teleconverters for a Minolta Dimage 7hi? Do I need a step-up ring or lens adapter (not sure if they are the same thing). Would like to get a 2x teleconverter that doesn't cause any vignetting. If I do need a step-up ring/adapter, could someone direct me to a place online where I could get the 2x teleconverter and the step-up ring please?

Thanks in advance

Default Found some teleconverters...

KCan, I'm not a pro...so please forgive me for all the dumb questions ops: I have a question...

I found this on Ebay...

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...category=30068

Wouldn't that lens work well for the Minolta Dimage 7hi since it has a 49mm mouting thread?

Also, found this....

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...category=30070


Please let me know if I'm not taking into account something important in looking for teleconverters.

Thank you again.

NewbieX,
49mm thread doesn’t mean at all that it will work well with D7xx , It depends on the optics design.
See here for some info about add on lenses tested with D7xx:
http://webpages.charter.net/bbiggers...on_lenses.html

The second product seems to be designed exclusively for D7xx, but I have no idea how “good” it is . But I am pretty sure that you will loose some F stop with that lens.

The Kenko KUT-300Hi has a 37mm mounting thread and will vignette badly at all focal lengths on the D7xx.

I don't know whether that discontinued lens works (Raynox TP-2550), but I do know to avoid that vendor - they list a lot of lenses as D7 compatible that are totally useless on the D7xx. I would not trust anything they said without testing myself.
