Well, then, I stand corrected. Sorry I mentioned it.

Guess I'll just haul around the 14-54, 50-200 and 150 f2 ZD with my EC-14 and live with the 75mm being a single focus length, not to mention the 45 and 25...and 12.

I'll turn it back over to the pros...

Sounds like you just need an MMF-3.

Uh, that was the inference, 14-54, 50-200 and 150 f2 ZD's on my OMD. Have the MMF-3. It would be nice to use a m4/3 1.4 TC with my micro 12, 25, 45, 75, 12-35 and soon to have 35-100, and yes, even my slow 7-14, 12-50, 14-45, 45-200, 75-300 and 100-300 "day lenses".

Guess I just don't buy into digital 2X. Tell me it's not just a crop. Sure looks like a crop...

It is a crop, then a re-sample, albeit an extremely sophisticated one, back to full resolution. 2x filters are easy to implement especially with high pixel density, the more data the better. I don't think anyone has figured out what type of 2x filter is being used but it's easily one of the best implementations out there. I can tell you now it is far better than the Bicubic filters in Photoshop.

...and this is what makes it different from the Panasonic Ex-Tele converter. The Ex-Tele converter does not re-sample.

I get really good results with the Ex-Tele converter (set to 1.4) with the 100-300. Atmospheric haze is the limiting factor, not IQ. The resultant focal length is reported in the EXIF.
