wanted EC14 1.4x teleconverter

I'm hoping to buy an EC14, 1.4x teleconverter.

I haven't started looking seriously yet, might even look across the pond, but if anybody here in UK has one they might sell could they let me know please.

Thanks.

You're doing the right thing. Mine is absolutely first class with the 50-200.

Yep Ellie, the EC14 is superb - I have had great success with mine when used with my 70-300mm.

Good luck with your search.

Ellie,

"Across the pond" may well be worth it.

Certain items seem to be much cheaper there and my 1.4x was one - I picked it up from a company called "Tri-State" and they have a shop in New York selling at internet prices.

I picked mine up over there at B&H in New York - very reputable US supplier if you decide to go over there

Regards

Keep a sharp eye on Ebay. I got one a couple of months ago, used, for 150 on a "buy now" deal. Mint condition - I considered it my bargain of the year!

Second that with E-Bay. I got mine brand new for 205 on a buy it now deal. Thought there might have been something fishy at that price but it is is the genuine article and is superb in use.

I think I'd be delighted with one at about 150. I'll have to keep looking.

I think you'll be delighted with one at any price, it is a quality bit of kit. Mine practically lives on the camera only coming off when I want to do wide angle shots.

Re: wanted EC14 1.4x teleconverter

Make me an offer? Mine has seen very little use, as I mostly find the 50-200 plenty enough...

I can point you at shots taken with it, if you want?

It still has box, instructions, whatever it comes with, as new.

I'm known as Catmangler over on fleabay, over 400 transactions, and 100% feedback.

I'm off junction 12, M40. If you're local, try before you buy?

Re: wanted EC14 1.4x teleconverter

I was deeply sceptical of teleconverters after poor results on 35mm (even with Olympus's own 2X-A effort and the recommended lenses).

The EC14 is in a different league. I've had good results from the ZD 50-200, 14-54 and Sigma 55-200 and 135-400. I pretty much always have it in my bag "just in case", as it weighs next to nothing and takes up very little room.

Mine was also a Fleabay purchase from the USA.
