Like to extend the range on my DFA 150-450. Can I use the Pentax DA 1.4x converter on DFA lens mounted on K1?

Yes, see below pinched from SRS's web site, but you may get some vignetting in FF thou

" When coupled with an AF lens, the autofocus operation can be performed by the main lens. This rear converter works perfectly with both the camera-driven AF system and the lens-driven AF system (such as the SDM- and DC- series lenses). The camera’s firmware must be updated to the latest version before using the autofocus function. Compatible camera bodies are: K-S1, K-3, K-50, K-500, K-30, K-5 II, K-5 II s, K-5, K-01, K-7, and K-r. Autofocus is possible with a Pentax lens having maximum aperture of f/4 or brighter "

Because the DA1.4x is designed for a Crop sensor you will get some vignette on images from the K-1 if used in full frame mode. You will of course have the opportunity to crop in post process or Use the K-1 in crop mode.

I've removed the duplicated thread and moved this one to Lenses.
