Does anyone know whether it's possible to use the 150-450 with the 1.4x teleconverter on the KP and still have autofocus?

If you mean the HDDA 1.4x TC, I use it with the K3 and AF works (but tends to hunt a bit in poor light). I'd expect it to work with the KP as well. I've also tried the DA55-300 PLM on the K3 with the 1.4x TC and it works, but with an even greater tendency to hunt.

No worries. I originally bought the TC to use with the DA*300 but even though the combination was optically good, the DA*300 tendency to hunt got even worse, and without a focus limiter it was really annoying.

KP, DFA 150-450 W/ HD1.4X TC. 630mm, f/10, 1/1000 @ ISO 640 handheld. backlighted.
Yes, the combination worked just fine on auto focus. Better than the DA*300 with the TC, which I almost always need to manual focus due to the focus hunting issues of the DA*300
