Re: 187mm x 2 = pseudo 374mm

Hi Henry:

I was panning at various focal lengths and did not have time to change.

About 6-7 months ago, decided to try out the digital teleconverter on the G9. While the 4X doesn't appear to be worthwhile, the 2X when using the PL 100-400 provides up to a 1,600mm field of view. Anyone else try this? Here is an example. For me it works to get shots that may not be possible.

I notice that you shot your 100-400mm at 187mm so with the 2x DTC that is a pseudo 374mm. I am wondering why you didn't just set the 100-400mm to 374mm without the DTC, which, of course, would have been much higher quality and easier to boot?
