Last year, I wrote a basic article on the EC-20 with various lenses.

I am thinking about updating the article to include my current and shortly arriving lenses.

I would be testing the following lenses:

Olympus
50mm Macro
12-60mm
14-42mm
40-150mm
70-300mm

Sigma
50-500mm "Bigma"

OM Mount
28mm Macro
28-70mm

All at the min and max focal length. I would also be taking the same images with and without the EC-20.

All would be on my E510 and mounted on a tripod.

I would use bear, ruler and other items as the target images.

Is this of interest, or am I wasting my time?

Nice one John......but you have an agenda.........as well all do.

More lenses.......Even more lenses

I wonder if Olympus/Sigma is willing to give me some other lenses? I doubt it.

Ah well, at least I am independent and have no agenda.

I would be very interested in the Bigma test.I am considering this lens for a trip at the end of May.I do not have the EC20 but do have the EC14 and would be very interested in your results with a teleconvertor.

Hey Andy - you and I both eh...:) Are you considering purchasing this...? If so, then you might want to come along to Caerleon in 2 weeks time. John will have the Bigma there and I am told he's a nice guy...:)

John would love to be there but its a bit far.Have a good time and let me know your impression of the lens.

Yes I am considering purchasing the lens or the Sigma 135-400 but seem to be leaning towards the Bigma.
