Re: Olympus 150-400 Rumour

I would think an MC20 could only be used on an F2.8 lens or faster, so I don't know what other options besides the MC14 will be coming or not. A 1.2 X TC maybe a typo whereas there are patents for 1.7 & 2.0, but I doubt anything more than 1.4 with an F5.6 long end of the lens (at 400mm) would be worth using, but still attractive at 560mm F7.8 in good light (with Sync IS). But..... it's still rumours & speculations at this point.
