It s for technical reasons , yes ?
3 weeks ago

Hello everyone

I have a simple question. I wonder why there is not in the Olympus or Panasonic catalog a 2x converter lens like Olympus used to have in its 4/3 lens catalog . Such a product could be very useful especially for some high end tele lenses ( like the 1.8/75mm which would become a very reasonably bright 300 FOV)

I have to assume that the absence of a mirror makes this impossible , yes ?

Can anyone confirm if this is THECNICALLY imposssible on a mirrorless

Thank you for your input
