Olympus Zuiko Digital EC-20 2x Teleconverter User Reviews

Worth Every Penny | Rating: ★★★★★
“Used with the Olympus E-3 and the Zuiko 300mm f2.8 lens over the course of two weeks in the field, it performed flawlessly. Autofocus, even on birds in flight, was quick and reliable. I’ve cropped photos taken with the teleconverter and my 300mm by as much as 50% and not been able to find any defects or flaws. The focus is crisp across the image. Because the Olympus System uses Four Thirds technology, with a much smaller sensor than most digital SLRs, the potential for problems is probably higher. I encountered none. “ – by James D. DeWitt

Extremely Pleased! | Rating: ★★★★★
“I just purchased Olympus Zuiko EC-20 2x Teleconverter. I have used it with the Zuiko 14-54mm zoom, the Zuiko 18-180mmm zoom and the Zuiko 70-300mm zoom on an Olympus E-330 with much success. I couldn’t be more pleased. I’m accustom to Nikon film cameras with high dollar Nikon glass, but I am very pleased with Olympus digital products. I have already gotten some beautifully sharp, calander quality, wildlife pics @ 1200mm (35mm equiv) with the Zuiko 70-300mm four thirds digital zoom. Simply Amazing! I have paid Nikon much more for much less. “ – by Joseph Cassles

Not cheap, but worth it! | Rating: ★★★★★
“Coupled with the 50mm f/2.0 macro lens, it’s a boon to close work — letting you get frame-filling images without having to be on top of your subject. For everything else, it can essentially double the number of lenses you own, presuming you plan ahead a bit when you buy them. Buy the EC-20 as your first step up from your kit lens(es), and you’ll save yourself money (and weight!) over the long haul.” – by E. Seale

“Fantastic piece of optics. I am a professional photographer and it’s primary use will be to work with my Olympus 70-300mm zoom, creating the 35mm equivalent of 280-1200mm…WOW!!! Giving up 2 f-stops is no big deal when the trade off is such incredible magnification, short focal distance and cost savings compared to fixed 1200mm lens out on the market.” – by Sy Kaplan

Top Quality, When You REALY Want To Reach Out | Rating: ★★★★★
“The Olympus Auiko EC-20 2X Teleconverter for Olympus Digital SLR Cameras is a wonderful addition to your lens set. Light loss is minimal, (Just the amount associated with doubling image size). Solidly built. Converts my Sigma 50-500 to an amazing 100-1000mm! Great combo.” – by Gary W. Sherwin

Great for adding versatility to lenses | Rating: ★★★★★
“It allows me to be farther away from a subject when using my macro lense and increases the range of my zoom lenses. It’s extremely useful even though it costs 2 f-stops of light. Since most of my macro shots (which is where it’s most useful for me) are done in brighter light, the loss of the f-stops isn’t critical.” – by D. Fogerson

2x converter works very well with the Zuiko 50-200mm lens, | Rating: ★★★★★
“I recently bought a Zuiko 50-200mm lens for my E-520. This is an excellent fast lens that takes sharp clear photos even at full extension of 200mm. I added the 2x convertor (Olympus says it will work AF with center focus) and was amazed to find that even at the 400mm maximum, the photos are still mostly sharp and generally just fine with a little Photoshop treatment.” – by BfloBen

The range and quality I wanted | Rating: ★★★★★
“Meanwhile, the EC-20 was just sitting there waiting for its chance. One day, frustrated, I thought, “What the heck!” and put it on the E-30 with the 50-200 mm lens. Everything changed: autofocus became quick and reliable, the number of keeper images increased dramatically and I got some fantastic shots. I do mostly bird photography and that extra distance can, many times, be the difference between getting and not getting a shot. But a 2x teleconverter making this much of a difference in relation to a 1.4 teleconverter, well, it makes no sense.” – by ubat

Oly EC20 teleconverter | Rating: ★★★★★
“This works surprisingly well with the 50-200. Fine detail, seen under magnification is lost, but coarse detail, which gives the impression of sharpness at normal viewing distance, is contrasty. The combination is handholdable with IS on.” – by S. Barnett
