    Looks like it might have a bit of heft; nice size. Looking forward to seeing some results from this little beauty.

    Confess this is really going to have me jonsing for an mEC14. Don't suppose there's any chance of that, but Oly certainly knows their way with teleconverters.

    Cheers,

    I think Oly has the best (picture quality and brightness) lenses in the market already now. Both lines are very attractive - mFT and the original FT. With the up-coming 40-150 mm f2.8 and the 300 mm f 4 (or similar) lenses shown on the road map, the mFT line looks attractive soon, too. And all lenses focus in AF mode with E-M1 as well as E-5 used to do. So great!

    One question remains, though. Is there going to be any teleconverters in mFT system, too? Or could I use my 1,4 x TC with mFT lenses, too?

    I know the original FT teleconverters work with the combo of E-M1 and original FT lenses (with an adapter) and with good AF speed. But how about the mFT lenses with any TCs?

    You can't fit a FT teleconverter behind an mFT lens due to the difference in lens mount register.
