Re: My number one hope is for the Sigma 18-35mm to be announced available for sale in k-mount.

If your lens is using the correct ID,so it is no problem to use the new converter;-)

No 3rd party lenses 'use the correct ID'

Pentax does not give ID away and 3rd parties will not pay for them.

Hence all 3rd parties are 'borrowed' ID's

So Ricoh's new Converter will not work for 50-60% of all lenses used on Pentax cameras if what you say is true.

This seems likely to cause much angst, complaint and rejection of this convert 'unfit for purpose' rather than screams of joy

Sorry,don´t need the correct lens ID,it needs af information and the correct aperture information,that´s all.

If the lens use the wrong focal length,the anti shake will work not correct,that´s all.

Wait a little,we will try with Sigma lenses.

With DA*300 the converter is nearly perfect

Quality like the Canon 1,4xIII.

Best regards

Certainly beginning to look like a winner

see the firmware update is back on the cards.

Was thinking AF firmware update woudl have a separate Dev stream to k3 firmware so a recent k3 .0x update indicates nothing with regards to a full lineup .x0 update
