Lens Extenders for Panasonic ?

    Hi,

    I've just taken some handheld shots of the moon with the 100-300mm lens on a G3 (see https://www.mu-43.com/f80/panasonic-100-300mm-f-4-5-6-image-thread-7871/index10.html#post147196).

    I am now wondering if there are any branded lens extenders for Panasonic M43 (like there are for the Canon DSLRs) so I could multiply the focal length by say 1.4X or 2X.

    Looking on the Panasonic website I see there lens mount adapters, but there don't appear to be any native M43 Lens Extenders -- do they exist ?

    I don't believe so. Oly makes TCs for regular 4/3rd, so you could perhaps pick up a 4/3 telephoto with TC and use an adapter on a micro 4/3 body. I don't know if it would AF, though.

    You can achieve pretty much the same thing with EZ zoom/extended tele conversion
