Suddenly, after a week of silence following the failure to deliver as promised, I got a mail last night and Ups express was at the doorstep today. Very fast and free of charge. And yes, Ricoh doés offer the converter relatively cheap here at 399,- euros.
I'll have time to put it to the test with the sigma 500 on monday. Contrary to Ron, that has all the lenses to try it on, I will be confined to just this one lens, but am looking forward to it nonetheless, and also very curious if AF works as Ron described.

Hi Chris,

I will be looking forward to what you find with your's on the Sig 500/4.5 lens. All of a sudden I seem to have trouble with my Sigma 500/4.5 + any 1.4X teleconverter, as I have written at:

I don't remember having that trouble before with my Sigma 500/4.5 lens, so I might just have a problem with my lens now.

I have found an intereting thing with my DA*60-250/4 lens though. Stacking a Pentax 1.4X HD AW and a Kenko 1.5X Pz_AF onto that DA*60-250/4 lens showed enough promise that I ordered a second Pentax 1.4X HD AW to try in place of the Kenko 1.5X. If anyone is interested in this "stacking" of TC's then see the following two links:
