Excellent addition to my kit
Excellent optics. I have used this with my Olympus f2.8 40-150mm lens. It provides an excellent reach without lugging around a lot of extra weight. One thing to note, it will the drop the f2.8 two stops to f5.6. I still have the MC-14 which only costs one stop and I am not sure there is any reason to sell it at this point. I will second the review about the software update (do not have the adapter mounted to the camera). Hopefully the online documentation will be made more clear.Read More
High Quality and Lots of Zoom!
Used this a bit around the neighborhood and at the zoo and it is fantastic! Clear images and adds the extra reach that I need!
Best teleconverter I've ever owned
Recently made the switch to Olympus and bought the M.Zuiko MC-20 to use with my M.Zuiko PRO 40-150 mm f/2.8 zoom. This is a great combination for close up work as well as birding. This is the best teleconverter that I've ever owned. I had some full frame gear in the past and the teleconverters were quite poor over 1.4X. The MC-20 is nice and sharp... focuses fast and accurately. Great piece of gear.Read More
MC-20 SOFTWARE UPDATE
VERY IMPORTANT NOT TO HAVE MC-20 ON CAMERA LENS WHEN UPDATING NEW BODY SOFTWARE JUST HAVE THE 300MM OR 40-150MM LENS OTHERWISE YOU WILL HAVE INCOMPLETE DOWNLOAD
Beautiful image (after update)
Just received this jewel of Olympus lens craftsmanship. One alert for new owners: Be sure you update the firmware of the 40-150 PRO lens (and other compatible lenses) to version 1.3 before you try this out, otherwise you will be greeted with the "Check the status of a lens" message. Has to be done or all you see is a black screen with this message. Once you do, you'll be amazed at the quality of the images you take. The 2x jump in telephoto range is impressive.Read More
