    Olympus are advertising their new mZuiko F2.8 40-150 Pro lens bundled with a new design mZuiko TX14 x1.4 converter for 1500 via dealers and Amazon UK.

    Would the converter work with this lens M.Zuiko ED 75-300mm f4.8-6.7 II | Olympus ?

    Hi There Karlheinz. It seems unlikely to be worthwhile, the 75-300 isn't that great at 300 - making it 400 seems to be pushing your luck!

    All the best

    I agree with Jono. I also have the 100-300 Panasonic which IMHO is a far better (and faster) lens. In fact I am thinking of negotiating a PX deal for the 75-300 when I purchase the 40-100 Pro plus mTC14.

    No. It is matched only for the NEW 40-150mm and 300mm lenses (and possibly other new Pro teles in the future.)
