TC is ready and works perfect,good quality,needs no firmware update,cause all IDs are in the TC.

Wait, does this mean that the new TC will work electronically only with known Pentax lenses, and will act like an old dumb converter if you mount a third-party lens on it?

So,no change for old converters.

Figures. This the sort of thing that an unauthorized firmware hack would be good for.

The "hack" should be inside the chip of the third-party lens...

Mmm could be a real can of worms.

If what Asahi man says this time is true then many 3rd party lens that 'clone' valid Pentax Id's will really screw up on it.

Could potentially back fire on Ricoh as far as customer relations go.

A converter that has been 6 year in the promise and then is a crutch half baked solution.!

Irrelevant of the moralistic viewpoint (3rd party and royalty payments) Ricohs customers will not appreciate a crippled solution.
