This would be nitpicking, but I would guess rubber weighs a bit more?

Greg, why can't you use the 75mm f1.8 in RAW. "even if I have to shoot JPEG"

The in-camera 2x tele-extender mode I might try is only active in JPEG mode. If you turn it on and shoot raw, when you download the images you only get an uncropped raw file in Photoshop.

The few files where I have tried the 75/1.8 for fun with the digital TC turned on, it really is.

So the M5 has a built in digital extender? I did not know this.

The Pen E-P3 does too, but the much better sensor in the E-M5 (and no doubt the newer Pen models) makes a big difference in the final image quality.

I tried it a time or two with the E-P3 but did not really like the results. On the E-M5 I now have the FN1 key coded to enable Digital TC on demand.

Is it much different than regular old "digital Zoom " though? Even so, I'm sure it still looks fantastic.

Yes, that's exactly what it is. After two periods, looking at the images captured so far with the 75/1.8 using the digital TC, 1/3200 second at f2 and ISO 1250, they're pretty impressive. I'm using the 75-300 at ISO 4000.

Greg, you just have too much fun. Knowing how much you like hockey, I'm happy they are back. Me, I'm excited the Rangers are about to start.

I once was about to try digital TC on the P3 but have not done it, expecting it to be pretty much tha same as on the older cameras.
