Laowa 60mm Macro + Teleconverter

Does anyone know whether the Laowa 60mm will accepts TC? I have Nikon gear, and I would like to use it with the 1.4 converter, however I cannot find any info online as to whether it will mount. From this photo it looks like the protruding part of the TC might cause problems, but I know that the lens elements move forwards as you focus closer, so it might work at macro distances. Could anyone try if their tc mount?

thanks a lot

The way around this is to add an extension tube inbetween.

Like this? TC, extension tube(s), lens

Thanks! I see how that would work, however you will loose infinity focus, unlike with a TC alone

Re: Laowa 60mm Macro + Teleconverter

surely you'd be using manual focus on Macro lens?

What do you expect the tc to do?
