For some time now I have been extolling the merits of the Oly E-M5 Digital Teleconverter Function (DTC). I believe it is basically poo-pooed because as others have correctly pointed out, it only applies to Jpeg files, and can also be accomplished in post processing.

However, I have found it to be very handy in that it allows in-viewfinder composing, requires no extra processing effort, does not change lens aperture (as does an optical TC), and produces amazingly detailed/high quality images.

I have my FN1 button programmed to toggle it On and Off.

You have indeed, IIRC you advised me in the Summer.

I used it for the first (and only) time at a conference in August.

The good news is that, as well as the jpg, the camera records the RAW file. However, I find that the jpg increases the sharpness and contrast slightly more than I, ideally, would like. These changes, of course, cannot be reversed.

There's no point in putting up side by side images here, as the changes made by dpr to images are greater than those I'm trying to show.
