These were with the fz5 in manual mode at 1/320s and f4.5. My original intent was to demonstrate the superior quality of the minolta act-100. NOT. It didn't do well at all. Theoft discounted oly c-210 (frequently seen on ebay for $10)wasmuch better. I took alot of shots with the act100 but it never would act right. All are 100% crops.

FZ5 w/minolta act-100 1.5x



FZ5 w/ ricoh tc200m 1.5x



FZ5 w/ olympus tcon17 1.7x



FZ5 w/ olympus c-210 1.9x



For size comparison only, here is the FZ5 at 12xwithout any tele converter. The soft focus is due to some cloudyness that moved in after the other shots were taken.

Fred,

Very interesting. I thought it was just me but I found very similar results on my moon shot tests. The Ricoh was all right, but a little soft on focus. But the Oly c-180 was much sharper, and of course a little be more powerful. With the dark background you don't even need to worry about vignette on the Oly lens.

Thanks for your test results.

The best way to get a moon shoot is:

F8 and 1/125, 1/100 and 1/80

Look at my pic of the moon!

Edit: All the pic were made with the Olympus B-300 aka Tcon17(x1,7)

I also love my B-300 aka Tcon17

I bought a Oly B-300 and a A28 (Wideangle x0,8 tread only 49mm)

I pay 62 US dollersfor both (Incl. shipment)

(400 dkr or 54euro)
