Nice ones smac. How this panasonic converter compares to the tcon-17? I Know it is more expensive. I used to get good results with tcon-17 on my fz1.

Well having never had the Tcon-17 I can't make a direct comparison. But based on everything I have read the Panasonic is opitcally the best of the bunch. All I know is that the Panasonic is the only teleconverter I have found that maintains f2.8 throughout the entire zoom range. That's what made me decide on that lens. I learned a long time ago that with both telescopes and cameras, more light makes a better image. You can always cut down on too much light. But it's really hard to gain light that's not there.

It was worth the extra bucks to me.
