When Oh When A Panasonic 1.4X T.C.?

I have the " Leica" 100-400mm, a nice little lens, but it needs a 1.4X TC. I've mentioned this on a couple of occasions to Panasonic reps in the UK and they agree that it does.

Anyone out there see or hear any news of a TC? I have the Olympus one for my 40-150 but incompatible (surprise?) with Panasonic lenses.

Have you tried the ETC mode? That should give a you considerable extra range.

I tend always to shoot 4K, and the ETC for that, on my GH5, is 1.4X which not bad but another 1.4X via a teleconverter would be very useful.

All the 100-400, 80-400 Canon/Nikkors have the option of a TC or two. Easy enough one would think for Panasonic to follow suit.
