Panasonic 2x telephoto converter
|A telephoto lens that is released with both a 1.4x converter and a 2x converter must be a pretty special telephoto lens. And the Panasonic 200 mm f/2.8 is. If a telephoto lens is delivered including a 1.4x converter, you wonder whether it's worth the trouble of also buying a 2x converter. But it is. Because a photo taken with a teleconverter has a higher image quality than an enlarged image, taken without one. A professional or perfectionist photographer, who wants the best possible uncompromising solution, will therefore head out with the Panasonic Leica 20 mm f/2.8 with both the 1.4x converter.
This Panasonic 2x converter probably also works well with an Olympus 40-150 mm f/2.8 or an Olympus 300 mm f/4 telephoto lens. And that's handy, because there is not yet a 2x converter from Olympus for sale for these two excellent telephoto lenses.
