Re: New firmware for the big 1 in sight

... hopefully... my wish for 2018... a 1.5x WR SMC HD teleconverter and fw-update for it so that: one can use it with SR-on, FF coverage for all DA-lenses (so Pentax get even more time to develop their new super * FF lenses)... etc etc.

I'll be happy with that fw-update...

For now and until than i'm using my "Pz-AF 1.5x TELEPLUS SHQ KENKO"; with my 50-135 and 18-135 and (Sigma) 10-20mm on my K-1. Recently i read in a review of the 1.4 Pentax version that i should put SR-off. Helps a bit: faster focus-lock. Noted that the apsc-lens focal lenght is transmitted to the K-1: in my info-screen i have a "focal lenght" item and see the aps-c fl.

I do wonder why Pentax uses a 1.4x factor in stead of a 1.5x. Is it because C*&N* uses this factor? The Pentax crop factor is 1.5 as far as i know; how simply logic i think it would be to design a high qual 1.5x teleconverter? Please do and support us with a fw-update for it...

... is one of my dreams...for now and 2018... 😁😁😁🙂🙂🙂
