But I can see it on sale on the Pentax Japan web store for 42,000 yen ... Hmmm, which translates to AUD$500. Better to buy off Tom.

What's funny about that? It transformed my manual focus 300mm f2.8 into a 510mm f5.6 semi-autofocus lens.

Makes it sound like it magically adds and AF motor to the lens.
Well it is magic, its just behind the lens, not inside it!!!

In effect, it does, which is what they said. And not a motor, but a drive. (Since the screw-drive AF lenses use the motor in the body.)

Ummm, The Pentax 1.7x AFA does add AF to a manual focus lens, Not magic. Maybe you should read up about this kind of adapter.
