Re: Grabbed the x2 Oly tele converter

I don't have the 2x so can't comment on that. I do have the 1.4x which mostly lives on my 300f4, happy with that but agree that the longer the focal length, the higher the risk of photographer shake issues. I don't pixel peep, but your squirrel shots look fine to me.

I had no plans to buy the 2x, but if Olympus' future is rather less certain now, I might consider it while still available. After all, even if the company ultimately disappears, the cameras and lenses should still be workable for years to come and the current advantages of MFT remain. Like many here I am already strongly invested in MFT and I don't see an alternate system that attracts me, quite apart from the cost issues. I still have some of my old Zuiko lenses from film days that get occasional use.
