    I received a Kiron MC7 2X Teleconverter in PK mount today. This particular unit seems to be one of the better multipliers out there, based on reviews, so I thought I'd see what it would do for my longer PK mount lenses. Conditions for testing were deplorable: overcast, steady rain, up under the canopy of a leafy Maple tree. I didn't want to boost ISO past 800, so most of my shutter speeds were between 1/60 and 1/100. All shots were hand held. Some could be sharper, but given the conditions, I'll accept the results. All were taken with a NEX-6. The last 4 were with the MC7 and a Vivitar/Kiron 75-205. All the rest were with the MC7 and a Vivitar/Kiron 70-150. Figuring I was losing two stops of light, both lenses were set at f/5.6. I was in a corner of my house peeking through a window, trying not to spook the animals, so a tripod was not an option. Might be time to invest in a monopod.

    Yes, it's a nice TC. I have it in Minolta MD mount and I don't see any image degradation whatsoever when using it.

    I ordered a Sirui monopod last night, for those times like yesterday when a tripod just isn't feasible.

    Cross-posted from the SMC Pentax-M 50/1.4 showcase. Much better light, much faster shutter speeds, much better results. NEX-6 + Kiron MC-7 + SMC Pentax-M 50/1.4.
