Pros: Quality construction - Economical compared to 2x teleconverters of other brands (Nikon/Canon/Sony)

Cons: Nobody

Opinion: I have been using this teleconverter on various Olympus telephoto lenses for a year and I must say that it gratifies me more than the 1.4x (MC-14). In some ways the photographic yield is even better mostly when used on the top-of-the-range M.Zuiko 150-400mm f/4.5 tele. Precisely on this lens the 2x can be combined with or without the built-in 1.25x teleconverter reaching double focal lengths, from 300 to 1000mm (600mm and 2,000mm if we compare it to full frame). The photographic results are excellent and sometimes it is surprising to see the sharpness with the 2x combined with an OM-1. Used on other lenses such as the 40-150 f/2.8 or on the 300 f/4 the MC-20 teleconverter returns excellent photos. Suffering if combined with the M.Zuiko 100-400 especially at the maximum focal length (400mm f / 6.3) which becomes an 800mm f / 13 (with the 100-400 is to be used only in case of emergency on very distant subjects). Highly recommended in the m4/3 field for those who do nature photography and use M.Zuiko telephoto lenses.

Pros: Well built, small, tropicalized

Cons: Nothing except that I had to update the 40-150 f2.8 on which I intended to use it

Opinion: Now with a contained expense (I found an excellent opportunity) I find myself with a 160-600 mm f 5.6 equivalent, of small size and weight, high image quality, fast autofocus, sometimes undecided but nothing serious for me I went a little beyond the weights and dimensions to which I was accustomed with the micro 4/3 but it was worth it.

Pros: Optical quality is constructive, tropicalized, compact.

Cons: nothing

Opinion: I have always been restìo to use the multipliers as little satisfied previously with the 2x on the white 70-200 Canon. But reading on the net positive opinions I decided to buy it to use it with the 40-150 f2.8 Pro. Well, I am very satisfied. The image quality is still high and the autofocus loses a little speed but nothing striking. I would definitely say better than the two Tamron 150-600 (the G1 and the G2) I've had previously on the D7200 and the 90D. And this is no small thing with half the weight and easily usable freehand. Crazy to get to 600 equivalents at just over a kg. Price in line with the quality it offers. Ps. You have to update the firmware on the 40-150 f2.8 Pro (1.3) otherwise it does not go. This is done from Olympus Workspace and takes a few minutes.

Pros: Build quality, top image quality also at TA, tropicalization

Cons: the same as every 2x, trivially you lose 2 stops

Opinion: Simply fantastic MC20 multiplier. As always, Zuiko multipliers already make the most of TA, since the optics are also designed to work at their best at TA. As a result you can double the 300/4 and use it as a 600/8 without necessarily having to close it. The same with the 40-150 2.8 which becomes an 80-300 5.6. NOTE: I happened to have a specimen of the mc14 a little soft, as soon as the mc20 arrived I noticed that the latter is a blade. Comparing them properly I realized that the screws of the mc14 had loosened over time, compromising the correct slow alignment of the machine body. It was enough to tighten them with a screwdriver to make the MC14 a blade like the mc20.

Pros: Optical quality, compactness, lightness, tropicalization

Cons: compatible with a few optics (but this is more a "against" of optics rather than the multiplier!); qualitatively, none

Opinion: In the past I have used other multipliers (Kenko on FF Canon and still I sometimes use the 1.4x plus 100mm f/2.8 macro on 5D II), but the quality of this little one has left me speechless: associated with the Olympus 40-150mm f/2.8 PRO is really amazing, if you do not look at the exifs, it is practically impossible to understand by the image quality alone if the photo was taken with or without multiplier (and those who know the 40-150 know well what exceptional optical quality you are talking about). What to say: with one and a half years allows you to have a canvas twice as long without loss of optical quality! OBVIOUSLY, doubling the focus, halves the brightness (f/5.6 fixed), but this is physical, not a demerit of any lens. If you really want to frame the subject in the extreme corner of the frame (but who wants to do it?!), it could be useful to close half a stop, but otherwise, even at TA the image quality remains absolute. I've never tried it with the 300mm f/4, but they tell me that the yield is absolutely similarly excellent as on the 40-150. At my own feeling, the AF (on E-M1 mark I, I imagine that on the next one goes even better) remains very responsive, maybe a hair hair slower, but it's hard to understand it. Rating 10 and absolutely recommended purchase for those who want to get to mm "serious" without fainting and/or get a hernia!
