Digital TC + High Res Shot = not bad for Macro (4X magnification)

For extreme macro work this is not bad:

EM1.3 + 60mm macro + digital TeleConverter + high res shot downsampled to 25 MP

With this combination it's possible to get the equivalent of 4X magnification (in FF terms) with around 20 MP resolution (80÷4=20), and maybe 10MP worth of detail

Of course with digital TC you have to use ISO64 and HIGH noise reduction and downsample it to 25 MP to remove more noise.

Otherwise the noise will be very amplified at 80MP and no noise reduction.

a simple pen as a test subject. The point of this pen measure 0,4 mm. Let's see how much we can magnify it.

4X full frame equivalent magnification. 2X in m43 standards. f/4 is the sweet spot. At f/8 the image becomes soft.

Has anyone tried this with the LAOWA 50mm macro ? with that it's possible to achieve 8X magnification.
