Yes there is definitely hope, but a) we don't have a TC yet and b) don't forget that reach is never enough - photogs will also put the TC on the 400mm!

I believe the TC is coming. I don't think Pentax would have put it back on the roadmap unless it was viable.

I live in Northern Ontario, and I spend a lot of time in the woods. In the winter, sunset is as early as 4:30 to 5:30 PM. At times, even f5.6 is too dark, I have to remove the TC from my 300mm f4 and boost ISO just to get decent shutter speeds. I would much rather have a 300mm f4 and 1.4X TC over a 400mm f5.6 and TC.
