Teleconverter comparison images: Panasonic LT55 vs Nikon E17ED
2 months ago

Hey folks. Just wanted to do a quick and dirty comparison of these two while I owned both of them, using real-world shots rather than test charts. It was a fairly overcast afternoon with steady lighting. I used a tripod with the self-timer set to take 3 shots after 10 seconds, and picked the best of each group of 3 for this comparison. I used RAW, and all shots were processed the same for uniformity.

First, two images from the FZ200 with no TC attached:

FZ200, no zoom

FZ200, 24X zoom

The house on the other side of the lake is roughly half a mile in the distance, according to google maps. Let's zoom in with both teleconverters.

LT55, 24X zoom

E17ED, 24X zoom

This wood duck box is about 100 yards away:

LT55, 24X zoom

E17ED, 24X zoom

This Canada goose is about 40 yards away:

LT55, 24X zoom

E17ED, 24X zoom

And finally, this tree is about 50 yards off to the left:

LT55, 24X zoom

E17ED, 24X zoom
