GH2 ExTelConv funtion - great! Does any other camera do this


I have attached still photo examples of the Ex Tel Conc funtion in the GH2, using my 100-300mm lens at 300mm .... interesting, the 1st shot was in RAW, and the exif data showed the ExTelConv effective length to be 707mm - I thought it did not work on RAW? all shots are 1-1 aspect, no cropping, iso 640. PP in PS3 for sharpening at 125/1/1 settings. The first shot was RAW, 12.3meg, 12"x12"; second M file size setting, 4.5meg, 13.5"x13.5", third shot S file setting, 2 meg, 9.75"x9.75".

so here is my question - this is incredibly useful, expecially for my long shots during kids sports; it allows the GH2 user to expand way past the native lens focul length!

Does any other camera do this? What a great feature!

What use have otehrs made of this function?
