Hope someone here is able to offer you what you're looking for. However, if the there are no results, usedcamerapro.com has a Minolta AF 2X APO D available in "very good" condition. Their price is $153.64, and if you use the code TAKE5, you can get a 5% discount. Shipping is free in the US, but I do not know their policy for Canada.

I've purchased many items from them, and feel their rating system is on a par with KEH.

Good luck!

I have the original Minolta AF 2x APO D (but without the Maxxum name on it, don't now if the TCs ever had it)
Almost unused so like new, but don't have the cardboard or paperwork anymore.

Live in Sweden so shipping might be a tad high.

PM if still interested/looking for one.

It has the lowest gear ratio ... designed for the original non-HS lenses.

Ah, now I remember, haven't used my A-mount gear for a long time except for the a99 with the minolta 500 mirror lens.

I've seen the difference explained both ways. The opposite opinion is that the original was geared higher and the second version was geared lower in order to better balance the faster native focusing speed of the newer HS lenses. I personally have no idea which is right.

I found this but doesn't help much as it was on an old forum:
"There are two versions of most Minolta TCs. While both will work with the same lens, the high speed version gives faster autofocus with the high speed lens but slower autofocus than the standard converter with a non high speed lens. "

Yes, from the info in the Teleconverter thread and many other posts about them ... the original 2x has a 2:1 gear ratio ... the II and D have a 4:1 ratio so not to drive as fast for the HS lenses that is already faster focusing than the original.
I think that is what it is ...

That's almost nonsensical.

If the gearing is lower in the new TC it will produce slower AF with both old and new lenses than with the old TC.

If the gearing is higher in the new TC it will produce faster AF with both old and new lenses than with the old TC.

As I said, I have seen claims that the new TC is geared lower and claims that the new TC is geared higher, and I don't recall seeing any real substantiations in support of either claim.
