    Got curious to see how well it worked, specially compared with the mechanical Olympus 1.4X teleconverter. I paced the distance to the subjects to be about 100'. Shot hand held at 200mm focal length with the 50-200 ED zuiko 4/3 lens. I'd say it's not bad at all... :biggrin:

    Wow! I didn't know WERA was still around. I raced with them in the late 70's.

    Oh, yeah, nice shots and the digital zoom does work better than just cropping.

    I was just going to ask whether it was superior to cropping. Does the camera digitally crop the image?

    as far as I can see using Aperture the digital tele only works on the JPEG - if you shoot RAW plus JPG, then the RAW image is the full frame and the jpeg is a crop that has been up-resed and processed to the same pixel dimensions as the RAW.

    its not at all bad - its just you are left with less PP latitude afterwards

    I am curious as to how it can be better than just cropping, and somewhat sceptical as to whether it actually is.

    It's the same as crop plus upscale.

    Is there a difference in metering? Does it meter on the cropped image or the full image?
