if it is a 120-400 f/4-5.6 no AF with the TC, no much optical quality to expect out of it when TC mounted neither.
Actually according to Ricoh it works with the DA 55-300 f/4-5.8 with a warning. So I am taking that to mean it will work @ 5.6 in good light. And based on what I've seen in the 300mm plus lens club thread I'm not going to immediately discount the image quality either. Especially since I am assuming the 150-450ish lens was designed to be used with the 1.4xtc making it a 250-600mm lens...............

But this is a rumor and wishes thread so facts are not important anyway, so I'm going with the 150-450 + TC.

Recycling/adapting old 85/1.8 or 85/2 as cheap DA would be welcome

I'd just like there to be a lens or two worth the money. Not this HD 20-40 stuff...

I don't see why it wouldn't work, I have no trouble with a cheap Vivitar Series 1 1.4x and the 55-300. Focusing might be slightly slower, but it works.

And as this is a wishes thread, the "150-450" is actually going to be a rebadged Tamron 150-600.

More hybrid asphericals that delaminate themselves with age?

You mentioned "worth the money" in connection with the DA 20-40.
A solid aspherical lens is one of the quality items you pay for in that lens.

One also pays for sharpness, and the HD 20-40 doesn't appear to offer enough of that for a $900 lens, according to most reports I've read.

I would like to see the FA LTD lenses updated with HD coatings, DC motor drive, & weather sealing. I would also like to see an improved DA* 55mm with HD coatings, DC motor, and improved sharpness at wider apertures.
