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

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

Once Pany or Oly come up with reasonable fast long primes, like a 2.8 15mm and a 4 300mm, they might think about optical teleconverters.

I expect most people would be screaming about the prices of those primes, and scream even louder once the realise that a good converter will not be cheap as well.

As someone already did in this thread; look at Canikon prices and forget about long primes being cheaper for M43. The long primes can be a little (not much!) smaller and lighter, but will be pretty much the same price if we are lucky. Or we might pay more because of the smaller numbers sold...
