image of Olympus 2X EC-20

(From company literature) The ZUIKO DIGITAL 2x Teleconverter EC-20 is an ultra-compact, high-performance lens capable of doubling the focal length of the master lens. It can be mounted on any ZUIKO DIGITAL lens, dramatically extending lens performance and putting more subjects within the photographer's range without affecting mobility or ease of use.

Complementing the already available ZUIKO DIGITAL 1.4x Teleconverter EC-14, the EC-20 adds new versatility to the ZUIKO DIGITAL line-up, providing a convenient, cost-effective solution to the demands of telescopic shooting, as well as wide-angle macro and ultra-high-magnification shooting.

The ZUIKO DIGITAL 2x Teleconverter EC-20 will be available in December 2007. Estimated Street Price: US$479.99.

    Great image quality
    Af can be a litle slow

    This is a very lovley piece of glas!

    I uce the EC-20 with the ZD 50-200 SWD for tele and with the ZD 12-60 SWD for some macro shots.
    There can be some hunting, but once it is locked on target, the AF is fast and precise.

    The image quality of the EC-20 is great
    (sample link below) and i will recommend it to any one who asks
