Wow! was quite a long time nothing posted here...
Here's an example of a shot taken on a K-3ii + DA60-250 and the HDTC1.4x, and quite heavily cropped... so lots of potential with this combo... heuuu trio!

That's very nice indeed. I got rid of my K-3II and 60-250mm when I bought the K-1 (I also have the Sigma 100-300mm f/4 so thought the 60-250mm was a bit wasted) but have always regretted doing so. Also with the 1.4x being for a crop sensor it means I very rarely use it these days.

I did try it the other night with the 150-450mm but found the picture was slightly sharper without and then cropping more but it worked well with a cormorant last year on the same lens.

I understand, the 60-250 has often been neglected by myself as well, but rediscovering it with that combo... huuee trio... recently when hiking... I was fedup to have to switch lenses too often with my k1 and primes, or to carry a second dslr. I love taking pics of nature, anything that attracts my eyes.. so quite versatile. Just need a wide-angle + macro close by though...
I am willing to convert it to FF, as it does lots of vignetting on the k-1. I just need to find a good JIS Screwdrivers kit to play with the lens hardware... thos in amazon are pretty scarce or expensive...

Whish they (Ricoh/Pentax) create a similar kit like the 60-250mm in DFA / FF, with a good TC that is FF...
Thinking of a lens focal range like the Sigma 50-500 in f5.6 fixed... that would be awesome !
Or simply the return of the 250-600 even better... :-)
