Product Highlights
  • 1.4x Teleconverter
  • For Four Thirds Format Mounts and Lenses
  • High Grade Series
  • Dust & Splash Proof Construction
  • Fits All Zuiko Digital Lenses

When you need more telephoto in a smaller package, the EC-14 1.4x Teleconverter from Olympus is an ideal choice when using Olympus Four Thirds mount cameras and lenses. With only 1 stop of light loss the 1.4x converter still provides fast super telephoto capability for sports and nature photography. For instance, turn your Zuiko Digital 300mm f/2.8 into a 420mm f/4.0 (35mm equivalent 840mm f/4.0). The EC-14 is compatible with all Zuiko Digital lenses, and is fully multi-coated to retain the high lens performance you expect and built to be drip-proof and dust-proof.

Teleconverters are best used with longer telephoto lenses and are not recommended for lenses wider than 50mm, e.g. 28-105mm (35mm format).

        Comments about Olympus EC-14 1.4x Teleconverter:

        I used this teleconverter with my Olympus 50-200 SWD telephoto lens, and got some fantastic results. The teleconverter is small and neat, and with it, my telephoto lens becomes a 70-280mm telephoto, with a loss of only 1 f-stop of light. This makes for a pretty powerful and pretty fast telephoto combination. The teleconverter is weather sealed, as is the the camera (OM-D E-M1) and the lens, so it is a great combination for wildlife photography. I used recently on a boating trip, where I was photographing Osprey and Bald Eagles, and I got some nice really shots.

        The lens does not appear to degrade the optical performance of the lens in any way -- it is still a very sharp lens with the teleconverter.

                  Olympus Zuiko optics are the best on the planet, I would say better than Canon and Nikon. It´s impressive what comes out of their glasses! I did not see any deterioration on IQ coming out of this EC-14 combined with my Zuico 50-200mm SWD. Really impressive! The reason I send back is simple. My passion is to shoot birds flying. These glasses with my Olympus E-3 did not cut over my prefered subject. Lost so many awesome oportunities.I have a Canon EOS 1D Mark VI and an EF 600mm f/4.0L IS USM and that combination is a killer when shooting birds flying. I am waiting for the EOS 1D X to come out! I am seriously considering selling all my Olympus equipment for the reason that Olympus is not really showing signs of Coming up with a Pro body that has a pro autofocus system. Great optics with slow autofocus really does not cut to the Pro market...Too bad...I had hopes all these years that Olympus would have come with a killler pro body, but unfortunately looks like that's just a dream...

                    Comments about Olympus EC-14 1.4x Teleconverter:

                    I originally bought the EC-14 to use with my High Grade 50-200mm lens. I already have the EC-20, but that combo had some problems focusing in low light and I had even more trouble controlling camera shake when using it hand held.

                    With the EC-14, aside from the loss of one f/stop, I have not noticed any drop off in performance with this combo. No loss of sharpness, detail, or overall image quality, and a significant reduction in the camera shake problem. Focus is fast and accurate too . . . even in low light.

                    However, as pleased as I am with the EC-14/50-200mm combo, The tele-converter may actually spend as much or more time partnered with the 40-150mm kit lens that has been gathering dust since I acquired the 50-200. The 40-150 is significantly lighter and a great lens for the price, but lacked that extra little bit of reach I wanted for shooting travel photos.

                    I'll still use the 50-200 for birds and wildlife shooting, but I have a hunch the EC-14 coupled with the lighter weight kit lenses will be just the ticket for a long day of sightseeing.

                      I use the EC-14 1.4X teleconverter with an Olympus E-3 with 50-200mm zoom. This lens is extremely sharp and with SWD very fast autofocus. the lens is normally 400mm and used mostly for Wildlife. With the EC-14 The lens extends to 560 mmm with no loss of sharpness or speed in autofocus. You do however lose 1 f stop. The Photos are still tack sharp and has an etched look to it.

                      Use it with my 50-200 for wild life and extra reach paired with low impact on visual quality, works as a charm. Providing there's enough light (and not much is really required) it works well even with the 70-300! Can't imagine a better quality 840mm lens for less money.

                      At 4/3 normal-zoom lenses, ~50mm is slightly short to the object, sometimes. Whereas, ~150mm or ~200mm lenses is too long for daily use when it is set to the minimum length(40mm or 50mm).

                      This item make it possible to extension your all lenses' length easily. 2x Tele-converter has more magnification, but also some reduction of lights and picture details, I heard.

                      It is a powerful tool for 4/3 user to supplement the interval of the distances of their lenses, and enlarges the photographer's equipment flexibilities.

                        Allows me to get those shots that were too far away to capture. Fairly fast focusing.

                        A little slow to focus in very low light, but other than that I have no complaints.

                          This piece is about the same size and weight as the EC25 extension tube. I have owned the EC14 for about a week now, and have mixed emotions. I have not used it as much as I would like to have at this point. Some shots of flowers and seem to have a halo blooming effect when this is in use w/ my 50-200mm f/2.8-3.5 SWD lens and my E30.

                            I am not yet able to purchase the 50-200 that I do intend to add to my gear one day. I bought this as a less expensive alternative to get more range for my 12-60 and 18-180. It works flawlessly. It is a well made piece of gear, solid, but not too heavy. Even with the lower end 18-180 the autofocus is smooth and quick. The loss of one stop is not an issue, as my photography is primarily nature based. One day it will be a great way to extend the range of the 50-200.

                              Effective way to extend your lenses range while remaining lightweight. Works great with 12-60 and 50-200 zooms

                                Exceptional optical quality as is the norm with Olympus. I opted for the 1.4 converter vs. the 2.0 for the drip/dust proof capability of their hi-grade series. Gives my 50-200 zoom a maximum reach of 560mm (35mm equivalent), with only one stop loss. For the combined price/quality, hard to beat.

                                  This TC in its little pouch goes always in my bag. Works well even with 3rd party lenses.
                                  It is also dust and splash proved and very well built.

                                    I am pleased with my purchase to a point. Yes it brings better clarity to my wildlife photography but I feel it lacks true zoom for shooting beyond 30 yards. But the price was fair and I love it on my 50-200ED.

                                    Based on the recommendation of Rick, one of the technicians at Olympus I also ordered the teleconverter when I ordered the 50-200mm f2.8 lens. He was right on with his description of the results I could expect. Of course it works with my other 4/3 lenses but this combination can't be beat unless of course I wanted to spend $7000.00 for the 300mm lens. The quality of the Olympus lenses is 2nd to none. I own an E-30 but when this combination was used with my new E-5 the results were remarkable. Thank you Olympus.

                                      Comments about Olympus EC-14 1.4x Teleconverter:

                                      I am a wedding and sports photographer.
                                      I shoot a lot of hockey and HS football. I have in the past rented the 90-250mm and the 300mm f2.8 lenses, but that adds up to a lot of $$$.
                                      I own the 35-100mm f2.0 and with this converter I can now get in tighter during hockey, even football. Sure it stops down to a max of f2.8, but there is no image quality loss because of it. Even on the 50-200mm it drastically improves the range. I used this paired with the 300mm f2.8 and it gave me after the 2x crop factor a focal length of 850mm which was incredible.
                                      The only cons in my opinion is 1)The price is up there as is all olympus gear. 2) The construction, while solid, when mounted to the E3 and the 300mm is the weak point and I can see it becoming loose down the road.

                                        I am using this teleconverter with Olympus E300 and E5 cameras. With a 140% extension of the focal distance on Olympus Four Thirds SLR digital camera lenses, this is a powerful kick, especially for telephoto lenses!
                                        The photographic results are superb!
