That's quite good - current Wex prices for the 2x Sony full-frame version is £499, with the 1.4 at £549 (, although neither currently available).

I'll be keeping an eye on real-life test results, especially with the 40-150. I've got 2 MC-14s at the moment (both bought second hand from UK bricks & mortar suppliers for under £200) and swapping one for a 2x is a thought. I've got a big safari trip in August.

Amazon was the only place I could find it.

Who is advertising it for £399?

EDIT: https://www.srsmicrosystems.co.uk/ol...converter.html (google shopping is only finding amazon) I'm waiting to the Oly Store to list it and see if I can use a code to get it down to £339.15.

Re: New MC 20 announced.

Don’t forget that there are discount codes available for the Olympus website shop... Rather than publish it for non members to see and use PM me if you want 15% discount!

Re: New MC 20 announced.

No reviews yet, announcements only, many of them containing this almost silly "1200mm equivalent" while omitting to mention the "F/8 equivalent".

It would be good to know the detriment on IQ by having optical resolution measured when used with the 300 F/4. Who knows, maybe Olympus have pulled out a white rabbit from their hat?

Yes, if they get too many orders for what's now quite an old code they may withdraw it. Only the MC14 listed at the moment, but I'll be regularly refreshing the page including teleconverters.

Re: New MC 20 announced.

MC-20 in this (think there might be a slightly more EC-20 orientated one on fb)

But...

Although it makes the lens 600mm, or 1200mm @35mm sensor, the f number will be changed from f4 to f8 by the adaptor, but the 35mm equivalent DoF is f16...

The DoF calculation for a 600mm lens and an image at 30m shows the m4/3 @ 650mm
The DoF calculation for a 1200mm lens and an image at 30m shows the 35mm @ 320mm

Re: New MC 20 announced.

Download link to the above images with the MC-20 and 40-150

https://peterf.photoshelter.com/gall...000UNBaTbetnpY

I had a quick look at the feather detail and it looks quite good in the zone of focus. No Exif in the image, and bearing in mind it was the 40-150, it seems a bit too good to be true, just saying!

Time will tell.

the MC-20 actually quadruples the focal length of its master lens

Anybody claiming more than 4x ?

Re: New MC 20 announced.

Seems the MC-20 defies the laws of physics as it transforms a 300mm lens into a 1200mm.
