Looks like jaggies

Lifting the shadows it looks as if the HD was ps shopped in and pixel noise has been smeared and with funny colors looks that look different from the rest of the photo

If you look around all the letters, there are a lot of jaggies from low quality compression. The mottled color around the hd appears to be from the jaggies. It isn't as noticeable on the other letters because they are black and white spilling over onto dark gray. If it were fake, more than the "HD" would have had to been added, as there has never been a DA teleconverter, nor a WR one. The thing that made me suspicious of it was the lack of Ricoh branding.

I imagine it is a rebranded TC from one of the usual suspects. Time will tell if it works any better than the others. The only thing that is certain is that it will cost at least 2x what the others sold for.
