    Did anyone ever try this combo?
    I've just bought a 70-300mm macro that would become a 210mm-900mm using a 2x teleconverter over the the LA-EA1. One thing is for sure...this would probably be one tough combo to test your manual focusing skills.

    NEX-5n + K mount adapter + 2X converter + 400mm Pentax-M lens works great! Both the converter and lens are very old, by the way!

    Definitely a tripod and mount job I'd think.

    Yes, 900mm is tripod only. With the help of magnification and focus peaking it might be doable; but I don't know if you'll be pleased with the IQ. My experience with 2x converters is disappointing. I only use 1.4x.
