    Found something today at the local camera store I just couldn't pass up, if for no other reason that it looks like it would be fun to use.

    It's a 2x teleconverter.................................

    2x%20wfh%201%20post.

    ........ with a focusing helicoid built into it:

    2x%20wfh%202%20post.



    It basically acts as an extension ring when you 'run the lens out'.

    2x%20wfh%203%20post.

    2x%20wfh%204%20post.

    I have never seen or even known about such a critter. Back in the 70's and 80's, I did have a 2x TC that the elements were mounted into a bayonet system so they could be removed, making the TC into a 32mm extension ring. But I've never seen the same concept since then. This is a close as I've ever seen.
