I'm especially interested in official Lightroom tethering as that is mostly what I use.
Why don't you use PK Tether to upload images into a folder and then nominate that folder as a "watched folder" in LR?

As soon as an image has been transferred, LR will show it on the screen.

Personally, I'm not keen on native LR tethering as I've seen it to be flaky many, many times.

Yes it has been possible for some years, now.

Hey, different strokes for different folks. PKT may work just fine. But I'm not keen on added steps and added software.
I'd still simply prefer to plug my Pentax into Lightroom (or CO for that matter) and have it work like the Nikon or Canon that I could have bought instead. Just because a "homebrew" workaround exists, doesn't make me wish for actual Lightroom support any less. But maybe I'm in the minority. Still glad to see the 645Z plug-in as it gives me hope genuine support for aspc (and FF?) Pentax cameras may be coming.

Cheers!
