Olympus MC-14 1.4x Teleconverter Reviews

Stopping down helps sharpness

By Timothy
Rated 5 out of 5

This is a nice addition to the 40-150mm f2.8. The MC-14 used wide open at f4 on this lens - the images are sharp but there is sometimes a halo effect on the edge of hightlights. When stopped down to f5.6, this combo resolves noticably more detail and without the highlight halo effect. Attached is a photo at f4 showing the halo effect.

Excellent teleconverter

Works perfectly with the 40-150mm f2.8 PRO lens for a 35mm equivalent of 112-420mm f4 with no loss of image quality or AF and focus functionality. I did experience some AF and focus loss when using with the ED 100-400mm f5-6.3 IS lens but for more stationary subjects this combination is excellent. Image quality is still impressive at 1120mm f9 (35mm equivalence). This is a great accessories for your compatible Olympus/OM System lenses.

I bought this to pair it with my 40-150 and my MC-20 . People talk about how soft the 2x is but I don't see that drastic of a difference. I see zero difference with the 1.4 Ad's just enough reach where the 2x is a tad more than I want/need. Glad I bought it.

Glad I have this for my 40-150 Pro lens. Took it for a spin on the shore and it was great!

Works well with my M.Zuiko 100-400 Zoom Lens.

I bought this teleconverter lens to go with my Olympus OMD M-1 and Olympus 100-400 Zoom lens for a little extra reach for bird photography. I have used it for about a week now and am very happy with the extra magnification and quality of the photos. I kept it on the lens all of the time so far. I would probably take it off in low light situations because you do loose some light, but is fine for most situations.

Works well with Olympus 300mm F4 Pro

Purchased for use with an Olympus 300mm F4 Pro lens. Works well, image quality is still very good. Focus does seem a slight bit slower with the combo, but not enough to be concerned about. Happy with the results for static subjects; haven't tried it with flying birds yet.

Adjust your expectations

Given my disappointment I was pleased to see a recent video by an O ambassador who showed the limits of using this item on Olympus 100-400 and 300. I thought I had a bad copy but I guess it's just the limits of what a TC can do. I no longer use my teleconverter because, IQ wise, it's not worth carrying or taking the time to put on an otherwise fine lens. If image quality doesn't matter to you you'll probably like the extra range (although you might as well use a digital zoom instead).

Works well with 300mm F4 Pro

Purchased the MC-14 primarily for use with the 300mm F4 Pro and occasionally with the 40-150mm F2.8 Pro lens. Very pleased with the performance when paired with the 300mm F4 Pro. I'm not a big-time pixel peeper, but the image quality looks fine to me. Auto-focus works well; I'm sure there is some impact but it's relatively minor. The additional size and weight is unnoticeable. Haven't tried it with the 40-150mm F2.8 Pro yet but anticipate it will work well with it as well.

Is this compatible with the Leica DG Vario-Elmarit 50-200mm f/2.8-4 ASPH. POWER O.I.S. Lens?
Asked by: Ellen M
Actually yes it is fully compatible with the Leica DG Vario-Elmarit 50-200mm f/2.8-4 ASPH on both Olympus and Panasonic cameras. To answer the second part of your question, a POWER O.I.S lens such as the Vario 45-175mm f/4.0-5.6 would not work because it can not physically take any sort of conventional teleconverter.

question

Will this work on a Panasonic GH4 body?
Asked by: Larry
Yes, the Olympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL MC-14 1.4x Teleconverter (B&H # OLMC1414X) will work on the Panasonic GH4. The teleconverter is only compatible with 2 Olympus lenses, The M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 40-150mm f/2.8 PRO and M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 300mm f/4 PRO. Keep in mind that when using Olympus lenses on a Panasonic camera you will not have image stabilization because Olympus has the stabilization in the camera and Panasonic has it in the lens.

question

Any reason why this can't be used with a 4/3 lens and the MMC3 adapter?
Asked by: Anonymous
See how the front element protrudes from the body? It fits into the Pro M.Zuiko Pro 40-150mm f/2.8 but hits the rear element on any other shipping lens. I believe it will fit the (not yet released) M.Zuiko Pro 300mm f/4. You can probably find an EC-20 2.0x or EC-14 1.4x Teleconverter used and use that with your MMC3 adapter.
