Thank you for sharing about the teleconverters. I have the Kenko Pz-AF 1.5x TELEPLUS SHQ and the Sigma 1.4x APO EX and they both work with my K5IIA and K3. I have tried the Kenko on the K1 with my FA*28-70 but have not downloaded the fees to the computer yet. Will do so and report back here.

As an aside, from all this tele-converter talk, what insurance policy were you using? I have some coverage under home and contents insurance for 'portable contents' that they say will cover camera gear, but have never tested the policy.
These guys - they are great to deal with.

You are always a mine of information and advice Adrian - as well as being a model of prudence. I'm very grateful for the tip about the Rogue Safari - I use it often.

K-1 with Pentax HD D-FA 150-450 and Promaster Spectrum 7 1.7x Teleconverter. The Promaster has the focus motor contacts and works delightfully with the 150-450, although hunts a little in shadier conditions. No evident vignetting - so much better than the Tamron and Kenko 1.4/1.5. This shot uncropped.

The small spider on the rose was a nice addition. I went into the house to grab my my macro lens but it wasn't there when I went back.
