First pics with Tcon 14B. Just a simple subject test to check out sharpness etc. Thought I'd share the results. (Taken at ISO100 - only resized, no PP.)

Very sharp and impressive. Even the digital didn't appear to lose much detail or get pixelated.

To my eyes the TCON 17 is not as sharp as the 14B and has more CA.The 17does havethe advantage of 1.7 magnification over 1.45 of the 14B, but I wanted the sharpest lens with the least amount of CA that I could find without spending the $450.00 for the Pana.

Thanks Haroshi, very sharp pictures. Trying to make a decision on teleconverters myself.

I plan to get a teleconverter in the next 3 weeks or so as well. I've been looking around and found the Canon TL-55 mentioned as a good lens for the FZ's. Does anyone have any input about that lens?
