I'll start off by asking you what kind of camera are you talking about?

Hi Pat

You may be able to just use the Oly teleconvertor with any 4/3 lens with your E500 but I could be worng and it may only just work with the Oly Zukio lenses.



:O :?

For the E-500, the ONLY teleconverter you should use is the type that goes between the lens and the body, and that means the only teleconverter available is the Olympus EC-14 which is a 1.4x.

You DON'T want to use one of the teleconverters that screw onto the end of the lens...the lens isn't designed for that much weight on the end of it, and you will damage your lens if you do so.

If you are using OM lenses with your camera, you can use an OM teleconverter (but again it goes between the lens and the body).
