Hi Anybody who knows what causes these lines when I use my pre-owned 1,4 teleconverter? And can it be fixed? I use it with my 200-600mm G lense. Maybee the previous owner dropped it and it has a mailfunction since that?

That is odd. Is it a Sony teleconverter, or another brand?

That looks like one of the elements is out of line, I'm surprised it's working. I would reckon fixing it would be expensive. I'd return it.

I will contact the seller in Japan via E-bay and see what he has to say..

That really stinks; very bad customer service. The price you paid also seems very high for a used teleconverter - I mean it is almost as much as a new one.

Contact Ebay, they will rule in your favour, especially if the item has a warranty of some kind.

Yeah! In my country Norway the TC cost around 750 euro. Almost the same in dollar for us since the norwegian currency is weak against dollar.
