Like the title says I used a TC-E17ED on this shot and thats what I use mostly...I do have TCON-17 also...haven't used it yet though...

Someone awhile back found some NIB TC-E17ED's and had them listed on Amazon...I got a couple before they were gone...the are expensive when and if you can find them...

LTZ,
Thanks for clarification.
I saw your other posts with Olympus and thought you were using the same here.
Do you collect all these different cameras and lenses as a hobby?

If you put a 1.7 teleconverter on the FZ100 at 24x - does the lens make it a 40.8 zoom?

Yes...Clint...thats correct

FZ 40/100:
  • 24X x 25mm lens = 600mm
With Nikon TC-E17ED added:
  • 14Mp - 24X x 25 x 1.7 = 1020mm
  • 10Mp - 28.4X x 25 x 1.7 = 1207mm
  • 7Mp - 33.8X x 25 x 1.7 = 1436mm
  • 5Mp - 40.5X x 25 x 1.7 = 1721mm
Also this multiplies your f/stop:

At f/5.2:

5.2 X 1.7 = f/8.8 I think Mark or Dustin could help us out here...

Yes, I use them at different times on different trips...some of these items go obsolete and they stop manufacturing them so for $70 I buy a TCON17 and stick it back in case they do...the TC-E17ED's was sheer fortune brand new in the box...made out like a bandit...they go for as much as $600 used...

Dang CMOS sensor is driving me nuts. I take over 100 pictures and get about 5 keepers. Shoot the same area a few times - some are focused, some aren't. Some darker some lighter. I'm beginning to like the CCD sensor a lot more. I was at 95% gray hair - now I'm up to 97%.

Clint buy a Canon 7D and interchangeable lens...soon as you get out shooting you will see it takes a lot to shoot decent shots...i have been out with the 7D all day and get home and have maybe 10 good shots if that...yes the CCD is much more user friendly and consistent...the CMOS can be a wild card at times...

I've tried my best to approximate or copy your shot but this is the best I can come up with.

I surrender.. I think its your TC Lens that make even the faintest craters visible without distortions.

From FZ35 without any lens, the most is 35.2 X optical zoom at 3mp size, so it's not bad.
I tried as well and even though it's not as good as LTZ, I'm satisfied with what this camera can do stock.
