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...
