Sigma 70-210 with OM 2 x converter

Any body have any thoughts on the combination of an om fit sigma 70-210, f4.5 with an om 2 x converter fitted using an om adapter to an e510. Is it just too much

Re: Sigma 70-210 with OM 2 x converter

Hi Greg I have used a Vivitar 70-210mm F3.5 and a X2 and converter on my E-1 with reasonable results just go for it and see what you get, are the results acceptable to you for what you want to do then you will find out if it is too much or not of course at F4.5 X2 is now F9 so will need a brightish day
