Panasonic DMW-TC20 Reviews

Works with more than just the 200mm!

By Jonathan

I'm not sure why Panasonic lists the 200mm lens as the only one compatible. The PL 50-200 f/2.8-4 lens works perfectly with this teleconverter. I purchased the two together and am very happy with the combination. When you put this 2x teleconverter between your lens and camera you immediately lose two stops of light. So, in my case, I get a 100-400 f/5.6-8. That's a bit slower than the dedicated PL 100-400 f/4-6.3. However, I didn't want to buy the 50-200 alone and still be wishing I had the reach out to 400mm, only to have to turn around and buy the 100-400 anyway. All lens functionality works, and the metadata is accurately portrayed (pictures show 400mm when taken at maximum focal length, etc). The biggest downsides are: loss of 2 stops of light, softer image quality when compared to the lens alone and price. The first two are expected with any teleconverter. The third... well, keep your eyes open for deals and bundles. Overall, I'm happy I got it. It's allowed me to get up close and personal with some of the small birds that regularly call my yard their home.

Fits Olympus 300mm f/4

It does fit the Olympus 300mm. The auto focus and exposure are working properly. I have not critically evaluated the picture quality, but have high hopes because lens and teleconverter seem to work quite well together. Olympus and Panasonic continue making compatible products that work well together.

Partial compatible with Olympus

I had previously said it works with Olympus. It does, but the image stabilization does not recognize the teleconverter. The 300 mm lens gets IS for 300 rather than 600 mm. It still works well, but you do need a higher shutter speed.

I finally received the lens and was able to use the teleconverter. All that it said it was and more!
