Sigma 2X TeleConverter doesn't work with Pentax
In reply to 22codfish, Mar 23, 2012

Well, three recent items of consequence to me are; I ordered a DA*300mm; we had a couple of sunny 25-30C. days (our 2012 summer?); and I found out that the Sigma 2X TC is worthless.

Last year we had some fine weather in April, followed by three months of mostly fog, rain and cold weather. A very good reason to favour Pentax WR equipment.

The Sigma 2X TC arrived at the local Henry's store, but we couldn't get it to connect. The TC glass was in the way. Apparently the Sigma rep. later told the store salesman that it would only connect with a 2.8F lens. Why would you want to put a 2X TC only on a prime 2.8 50mm lens? ☺

I wish Pentax would put their own WR teleconverters on the market.
