Hallo Marc. I didn't know, that there is a 2Xtele converter made by FED. I do have the
Comura, with quite a mediocre adjustable viewfinder. I haven't used the tele converter
yet, but I don't think optically the  reviews are to good. Mechanically it is well
made  Is the FED converter any better optically? Do you know?
