IMO: If the new HD DA 1.4X TC is in fact true, and it works properly with the DA*60-250/4 and DA*300/4 lenses then I think either of those two lenses is the way to go.

I suggest that you wait until after CP+ in February before making a decision. We are all hoping that the new Pentax 1.4X is announced then (maybe sooner even).

Thanks Ron,

That is a very good tip.

If it really comes out with AF, then, I could also use it with my SMC 200mm f/4 (K serie), which I found to be quite sharper than the DA 55-300 at 200mm.

I guess that this HD DA 1.4X TC with the DA*300 would give 420mm f/5.6, no?
