Re: Why no m4/3 tele converters like Nikon/Canon others?

Really the only current lens that would benefit from one is the 35-100 f2.8, however it isn't that sharp wide-open (it's okay, just not stellar, and you need a good starting point). Hence with the loss of sharpness of an extender really all you could have is a 1.4x shot at f4/f5.6 giving f5.6/f8. Should be okay in good light I guess. I'd rather have a 250mm f3.2 though...
