Stop imagining nonexistent mounts; it's the HD 1.4x Rear Converter shown on the roadmap.

Has anybody saw a Canon made EF mount converter to some other company mount? Or a Pentax made K mount converter to, whatever mount in this world? I didn't.

So, I don't think that Pentax will begin to help Sony to sell his ''lensesless'' mirrorless cameras.

I'm affraid this one will come, but later on ; hopefully assuming it will allow SDM, exposure and diaphragm control.
And it will be adapter, not converter.
The only one reason not to sacrifice all our K-mount FF lenses when Ricoh XG-1 and its pears will appear...

Let's assume we have a Pentax FF camera, a 15mm HD Pentax-DA lens and a 1.4x HD rear converter.

The above combination will result in fullframe pictures as if these were made with a 15mm x 1.4 = 21mm lens.

And that, in a nutshell, is why I think the rear converter is still not available since 2008. They only want to announce one in conjunction with a FF camera

Let's hope this converter will be KAF2, not 3.

Things that make you go Hmmmmmm . . . . .

So we have
  • Rondec saying something might be coming that we're either going to love or hate.
  • Adam saying he thinks CP+ will be similar to 2012 (my take - that was 7 lenses and a controversial mirrorless camera)
  • asahi man saying FF Telezoom and 1.4x TC (and dSLR near-term production capacity filled with K3 demand)
  • Asahiflex explaining the 1.4x TC in FF terms
All credible witnesses.

Simple : read my fore-last speculation.
As stated in another thread, if Ricoh still struggles to find a solution "not spoiling the existing mounts", that's clear.
FF will not be K-mounted, nor Pentax branded.
It will be K-adapter furbished i.o. to try stop tear, fears and angry...

The solution to "not spoiling the existing mounts" is to "spoil" them? That doesn't make much sense, don't you think?

Well, we don't know what is smoke and what is mirrors.
