Re: G9 Digital Teleconverter

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 had the same experience as you, except with the PL 50-200mm lens. I wanted to see how good the DTC was on my G9, so I set up test shots, first with no DTC, then with 2x DTC and then with 4x DTC. I was surprised at how good the images were with the 2x DTC. Almost as good as with no DTC. However, the images from the 4x DTC were pretty bad. You definately should not use that. But the 2x DTC with the PL 50-200 is more than acceptable and very sharp.
