Wonderful news!

But I am missing sealings! I think this TC would fit much better into pentax' product line if it where at least WR, if not of * designation.

So I think(hope) that the pic is a hoax and we will see a weather sealed TC... SOON!

Greetings, Flo

Let's hope that "AW" stands for All-weather?

Correct, AW stands for All-Weather (dust-proof and weather-resistant), as used on the HD 560 and several 645D lenses.

And it only needs a seal on the back, if the front end has a WR/DA* lens with its own seal.  Would be nice and reassuring to see the rear view though... aren't we greedy?
