Default Pentax APK 2X Macro Telepower

I have the opportunity to buy a Pentax APK 2X Macro for around US$60 but the owner says it has an oil leak. How will this affect the lens / can it easily be fixed / has anyone used this adaptor ?

There is also a Pentax APK 2X TELEPOWER T/C - anyone know anyting about this ? It's going for US$35.

Thanks !
Kevin

I'm not sure about the pentax versions but I bought a secondhand vivitar teleconverter
And it works really nice especially with a 50mm, then you get 1:1

not worth it if it has a leak, it can get on your sensor, and that will cause a who lot of problems. The repair cost may cause it to me more expensive then a new one.

Thanks guys. Think I'll check out the local repair store before buying - I live in China so labour is very cheap !
