    Dear all
    I would like to have a 1.4 x or 1.5 x teleconverter for my minolta MD 50mm lens.
    I would like to know if there is something like that and what is the right brand to check for.

    Regards
    Alex

    nothing good came. I guess you wanted to imply that there is no such staff.

    There are such teleconverters but you are not the only one seeking one. 2x teleconverters are generally useless (good teleconverter and good telephoto combination may be ok but not great) but the 1.4 variety degrades image quality much less and is more practical in many cases so they are much more in demand.

    I have a 2x TC by Kiron in Minolta mount (MC7) and the IQ hit is minimal, mostly in reduced contrast which is easily corrected in post. I highly recommend it.
