Alex... then other than potential weather sealing it aint any different than the tamron 1.4 that has been around for years? Why has everyone been crying for a pentax converter when there has been a perfectly good one available?

Just wondering.

Nevermind - just realized it is not longer available in the Pentax Mount...

Availability is not the only issue. The Tamron and Kenko TC's with PZ contacts are not fully compatible with SDM lenses. They do activate focus, but haltingly and not very reliably.
