You are correct, I just checked and the one I'm watching is still there. But it is listed at $800 so maybe I can resist....

would have thought resistance was futile with that price ? People seem to be shelling out hundreds more

Yes, you got a very good price if it's a good copy. I certainly paid more. Let us know how it turns out!

The lens arrived this morning. I'm blown away by how well made it is and the image quality seems marvellous.
Very struck by the no CA and how bright the view is.
My next question about AF tuning is...
Will the Pentax AF 1.7 TC also detect individual tuning ?

While I have this AF TC, I don't use it much, so ashamedly I can't even tell you for sure. My guess is you'll only be able to tune it with one particular lens, but give it a try if you have it! Just keep in mind that you'll need to set the focus manually on the lens first, and it should be consistently set to the same spot (e.g. infinity) if you plan to fine-tune the AF for it.
