Tamrom lens and 2x converter
I've got a Pentax M-7. I've also got a digital that covers a range of 50mm-150mm. I'm purchasing my first lens for my M-7 after having spent alot of time with friends'lenses.
After doing some research I've decided to purchase a Tamron lens 70-300 mm with an F4 - 5.6. I will also purchase a 2x converter ($250 Canadian).
I figure that this will be a great range of coverage (I love using a macro lens!) between the two cameras at an affordable price. Also, I won't be stuck carrying around a ton of lenses adding extra weight when I travel (which is often).
I found a package that offers the lens and a Manfrotto 714B tripod (which I also need) for $298 (Canadian).
Am I overlooking any other options that would give me such a diverse range without losing photo quality?
Is there anything important I need to know before I purchase these items?
Thank you so much for your input,
