Designed to be attached between a compatible lens and a Micro Four Thirds mount camera, the Olympus MC-20 M.Zuiko Digital 2x Teleconverter doubles the magnification of an Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm f/2.8 PRO Lens or an Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 300mm f/4 IS PRO Lens. This provides the effect of an 80-300mm f/5.6 and a 600mm f/8 lens respectively, dramatically boosting the apparent focal length of those lenses with a minimal increase to the size or weight of the camera and lens combination.

Olympus MC-20 Overview

Designed to be attached between a compatible lens and a Micro Four Thirds mount camera, the Olympus MC-20 M.Zuiko Digital 2x Teleconverter doubles the magnification of an Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm f/2.8 PRO Lens or an Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 300mm f/4 IS PRO Lens. This provides the effect of an 80-300mm f/5.6 and a 600mm f/8 lens respectively, dramatically boosting the apparent focal length of those lenses with a minimal increase to the size or weight of the camera and lens combination.

Electronic communication between an attached camera and lens is supported, maintaining autofocus and image stabilization, including Olympus FAST AF as well as 5-Axis Image Stabilization features whenever possible. Inside this teleconverter, nine optical elements including one HR lens, in four groups with Olympus's ZERO coating help to ensure clarity and color fidelity while reducing ghosting and flare.

Sealed against dust, moisture, and the effects of freezing temperatures, this teleconverter is constructed for dependable weather resistance. When used with the Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 300mm f/4 IS PRO Lens, this teleconverter also enables tele-macro photography with up to 0.96x magnification as well as up to +5 EV stops of image stabilization with the Olympus OM-D E-M1X Mirrorless Digital Camera.

Lens Compatibility

  • M.Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm f/2.8 PRO (with firmware v1.3 or later)
  • M.Zuiko Digital ED 300mm f/4 IS PRO (with firmware v1.4 or later)

Is there any AF or AE or OIS functionality with ...

Is there any AF or AE or OIS functionality with this converter using a Panasonic lens? Am I correct to assume, at least, that the converter will attach to any MFT lens and camera allowing manual focus and functionality?
Asked by: William
This teleconverter will generally not work with Panasonic lenses, and it only works with a few select Olympus lenses, including the 40-150 pro, 300mm pro, and the new Olympus 100-400 lens. The front element of the teleconverter sticks out, which prevents its use with most lenses. I have the Panasonic Leica 100-400 lens, and the teleconverter will not work with it. If you have a Panasonic lens with a recessed rear element, it might work. I do not know of such a lens, but others might.

Will the mc-20 work on a Panasonic g7 Camera ?
Asked by: David
Olympus MC-20 M.Zuiko Digital 2x Teleconverter will work, on a Panasonic micro Four Third mount camera, Olympus or Panasonic. The lens that is connected to the MC-20 must be an Olympus lens. Not all Olympus lenses will work using the MC-20 Teleconverter. The MC-20 is compatible with three of Olympus' professional telephoto lenses: the 40-150mm f/2.8 Pro, the 300mm f/4 IS Pro, and the upcoming M.Zuiko Digital ED 150-400mm F4.5 TC1.25x IS Pro.
