Given Ricoh has just released 1.02 k3 FW that does not have 'adapter' enabling it has to cast doubt on the authenticity of an imminent TC release

I know what you're thinking but a TC may not need a firmware update and/or the update could have already been there in the original firmware but just dormant until that particular TC is in use.

If that's true, then there is probably no hope for a third party TC ever working with SDM lenses.

Thank you

There may have never been any hope to begin with... However i do believe there are some people who use some PZ capable TC's with some SDM/HSM lenses quite successfully. that shows to me that some combinations or some converters just don't work right and not a generic broad across the board problem with PZ capable TC's.

None of them work right. Sometimes the camera manages to muddle through.
