Using the teleconverter setting on the X100s without the teleconverter?
1 month ago

I'm looking at getting an X100s and one thing I'm curious about is the teleconverter frame lines. It wouldn't be unusual for me to want to frame a shot with a 50mm lens, but am unsure about how necessary the 50mm lens would actually be for me.

Considering I'd still get somewhere around 12MP just cropping the standard shot to a 50mm length I'd be happy doing this, but am wondering if the setting for the teleconverter does much else apart from change the frame lines? Would my images end up looking odd because the camera will be trying to correct for a whole bunch of distortion which isn't there? I went to try it in a store today but I guess their display cameras had old firmware as there was no teleconverter option.

Is someone able to give this a quite try for me maybe?

Thanks.
