Adam, how is the feel of it? It looks strikingly similar to the Q to K adapter, does it feel similar too?
Wonderful build it that's true.
Was told that it feels pretty solid and durable, just like Pentax WR lenses (i.e. the 55-300mm WR). Apparently the barrel is made of plastic, though.

Oh, I thought it looked like the same kind of metal barrel as the Q-K adapter. A bit disappointing as it would have matched the DA*300 nicely in feel.

Well, we will have to wait until the in-depth review for a concrete verdict on the build quality. These pre-production samples and floor models never really tell the whole story anyway!

My guess the review will center on the Tamron 1.4 and the Pentax F 1.7x Auto Focusing Adapter as to what the IQ of this adapter is.

If it matches the Tamron, great, I have one already.
If it matches the Pentax F 1.7, great I have two already.

If it beats them both, I'm going to be out $600.

I sold the Tamron and I could make use of the WR (AW) in Florida spring fed rivers and swamps.
