    Has any one tried the EC-14 on a pen ? In my case an E-PL1
    It would be nice with my FT 70-300 for a little extra reach.
    Any Cons ?

    Thanks in advance

    The cons... you'll loose 1 stop, will have softer focus and harder to focus.
    The pros... you gain reach 1.4x, small size, cheap.

    But these are my experience with a Nikon DSLR setup.

    i have used that combo with my EP3. it gives acceptable results but requires good light so you can hit the higher f stop range. in dim light i was not happy with the results. i have not mounted it on a tripod because i worry about the weight of the lens on a PEN. did not want to invest in a special tripod mount. the EC1.4 is really nice with the 4/3 50mm. i do use manual focus with both.

    others may have different experience.

    Thanks for the reply's Redridge and fdifulco
    My E-PL1 with the FT 70-300 is not the greatest in low light
    So I Will scrap that idea
