New Kenko TCs- They forgot us!

Just saw on DPR that Kenko is introducing updated versions of their TCs, for C*nikon. No mention of Pentax! Especially ironic since the parent company THK includes Tokina and Hoya.

Kenko did make one set of them, which I own. They work fairly well.

Exactly! I suspect it is the same reason that Tokina isn't doing anything new in K-mount. Kenko is affiliated with Tokina on some level. Its a Hoya-Tokina-Conspiracy. The thing is, Pentax doesn't have in AF tc other than possible Vietnam production of the 1.7x AF, no extension tubes of any kind much less AF ones.
