The only one that will do that (I think) is the genuine Pentax 1.7x AF Teleconverter -- it has a moving element of its own that allows autofocus on manual lenses (you are supposed to set the lens to infinity, but it practice you just get it in the ballpark. And of course it is a TC as well -- mostly useful of fast telephoto primes...
