A very handy device

Basil, B&H Photo
22 June 2014
  • Excerpt: I used this teleconverter with my Olympus 50-200 SWD telephoto lens, and got some fantastic results. The teleconverter is small and neat, and with it, my telephoto lens becomes a 70-280mm telephoto, with a loss of only 1 f-stop of light. This makes for a pretty powerful and pretty fast telephoto combination. The teleconverter is weather sealed, as is the the camera (OM-D E-M1) and the lens, so it is a great combination for wildlife photography.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Improves Function, Lightweight

It Does What It's Intended To, And Does It Well

majormagee, Ebay
4 May 2014
  • Summary: I'm using this 1.4x tele converter with the Zuiko Digital 70-300mm lens to extend the range without as much light loss as the 2x tele converter would bring. I'm been using it for birding and flower close-ups where you're not allowed off the trail and it works quite well. I did a side by side test with and without the tele converter and the image quality nets out about the same after doing a crop to equivalent field of view because of the ISO boost needed to keep the...

Solid, optically outstanding performer.

  • Summary: I got this to give my Zuiko 50-200mm zoom a bit more reach. With the EC14, the long end is 283mm (566mm effective focal length). I've used this combination on an Oly E-30 and an OM-D E-M1. When I have it mounted on the E-M1, I connect my sling at the lens' tripod collar. It balances nicely and takes any strain off the m43 adapter. It also alleviates the 50-200mm's tendency to creep. I have not noticed any real degradation in image quality with the adapter attached.

EC-14 1.4 Teleconverter

William, olympusamerica.com
10 April 2013
  • Summary: I bought this Teleconverter to shoot nature shots at Florida's wetlands using my Zuiko 50-200 SWD lens and my Zuiko 70-300 lens. The Teleconverter focuses super fast with the 50-200 SWD lens, and it focuses just fine with the 70-300 lens. The quality of the shots are not degraded in any noticeable way when using the Teleconverter in moderate to bright light conditions. I would definitely recommend this product to any one needing a little more reach.

Excellent complement.

  • Summary: I got that high grade teleconverter to use it with my 70-300mm zoom lens, I'm more than happy with the results. At 420mm, equivalent to 840mm in 35mm cameras, I still get sharp and crispy pictures even in macro mode. I strongly recommend it as a sure value for all serious photgraphers.

A welcome addition to complement my Zuiko lenses

Roger, olympusamerica.com
4 April 2013
  • Summary: I purchased the EC-14 early this year after acquiring seventeen of the Zuiko lenses for the four thirds system. I have used this lens with the 18-180, 70-300, 50-200, 35-100 and 150 millimeter lenses and have been very pleased with the results. You will loose a stop of light, but when dealing with lenses as bright as f/2, that is a small price to pay to get closer to your subject.

works well with 50-200 SWD lens

mjohns, olympusamerica.com

  • Summary: Picked this teleconverter up for a trip to Tanzania to extend the reach of the 50-200 SWD telephoto lens. The added reach made a big difference for birds and distant animals. No visible loss of IQ. Great addition for a great lens.
