Thanks Lars. I have seen the Siocore on Amazon.de, so I guess they can ship it to Spain. The problem I see in your picture is the size of the tele extender. If I want to carry this size I may as well take my NEX 7 and a tele.


Hi Enrique,

I agree with you, if you also have a NEX or a m4/3 there is not much sense in getting the tele converter. The size and weight of it is comparable with a changeable lens (though might be cheaper).  This is especially true since the 200mm is a fixed focal length (no zoom).  I got the G1X since I wanted to have a small quality camera for scuba diving, where it has the most affordable casing.  For pure land use I would probably get a m4/3 (newest generation) with the 600mm zoom (35mm eq.) and a pancake zoom.  That would fit my usage in wildlife/nature (hiking/climbing) and city travel best.

Have fun hunting photos!!!
