    Hi, does anyone tried a teleconverter for 45mm?

    I see someone tried some olympus tc, but c160/c180 are not very cheap, and difficult to find.
    Is there something cheap and easy to find, that also gives a 2x without loose too much sharpness and light (at max. 2.8)?
    yes, I know a dedicated lens would be better, but 35-100 or 75mm are too expensive for me, and sigma 60 2.8 is too short.

    Unfortunately they are all difficult to find cheap, now that many know of their usefulness. Pretty much the only ones in good condition you will find cheap are because a) nobody noticed (if it is one known to perform well) or b) it does not perform well... I've never heard of a decent 2x teleconverter except for specially designed rear mount ones, 1.nx ones are okay.
