Given I can't find a Pentax one - anything known of this?

I don't think they make them any more. IQ was supposed to be OK.
Half Man... Half Pentax ... Half Cucumber

Pentax K-1 + K-5 and some other stuff

I have seen a couple on the web. But don't suppose they have all the functionality of a Pen?

A forum member had or has one, he may see this topic, and advise.

I've had an ebay saved search for one of these for about a year. One hit in all that time, and that was quite recently (after I'd stopped wanting one). IQ is supposed to be remarkably good, similar to a Pentax 1.7x apparently, but without the ability to AF an MF lens.

MF - Vivitar CF 28/2.8, Tamron AD2 90/2.5, MTO 1000/11
Stuff - Metz 58 AF1, Cactus v4, Nikon SB24, Raynox 150, Sigma 1.4x TC, Sigma 2x TC, Kenko 2x macro TC, Redsnapper 283 tripod, iMac 27”, Macbook Pro 17”, iPad, iPhone 3G

Thanks Tim - Apart from my Tammy 500 I don't think I have any Manuals left. So it might be worth a punt if I can find it again
