2x Teleconverters

Hello all,

Some information required please on teleconverters. I have been looking at some cheap 'genereic' 2x teleconverters on eBay, basically to play around with for now.

In particular, a Sakar 2x MC Mx-AF teleconverter. I am struggling to find any reviews of this item so wondering what experience people have had?

I have seen one for sale at £50. Again, I cant find many on the internet for sale so cannot compare to see if this is a good price. I have seen a Kenko 2x Teleconverter for £150 new.

My lens line up currently is:
Sigma 18-50 F2.8
Sigma 75-300 F4.5-5.6
Minolta 50 F1.7

I realise I would have to use manual focus when coupled with Sigma 75-300.

Any help would be appreciated.
Best regards
