but still have a few shots using ETC (Extended Tele Converter: an in-camera cropping feature of Panny without resizing back to full resolution) from a trip to Spain a few years ago.

I don't use DTC often either. It is cool sometimes with the 75-300mm II though zoomed out to 300mm to get a pseudo 1200mm-efl. Pretty wild. Nothing I would have imagined years ago shooting film.

I never combined ETC with Digital zoom which could give me 8x zoom effect and in full resolution,

The following is taken with GX7 & 45-150 f/4-5.6, Picture size = S, under ETC (so 2x zoom effect) = 600mm eq AoV of FF. It was taken on Mirador de l'Alcalde on the hill overlooking Barcelona. The Spanish equivalent of The Gherkin London was some few miles away.

The haze on that day of taking that image was quite bad... Some contrast be adjusted.

Actually, that looks pretty good.
