    I would like a TC

    To date, Olympus (m43) appear to be the only one to have made a TC for a mirrorless camera system.

    What seems to be the constraints for the E mount? Is it the E (cropped sensor) and the FE line of cameras?

    I have set some plans in motion to make a "proof of concept".

    Looks like Sony is doing the 28mm with matched front converters for wider angle. That's a good concept, to me.

    Does it have anything, anything at all, to do with a teleconverter?

    Many APS-C E lenses already (nearly) illuminate the full frame. It just needs a ltitle nudge to cover it.

    Vivek, I've been wondering about this as well. Every type of TC you could want for a-mount, none for e-mount. Why?

    Right, Tom! Especially now they have advanced to a metal mount and even SSS is available, it time!

    Oh. You're specifically interested in Teleconverter. Didn't catch that. I see the word teleconverter applied to both wide and tele front converters all the time.

    I'll finish my coffee now. ;-)

    I wouldn't mind a fast FE AF 300mm, say f4, first. Then a TC.

    We need a reverse speedbooster aka focalbooster.

    Have you tried the aps-c crop 1.5x or clear image zoom 3x?

    I have asked Dr. Caldwell (the man behind the Speed booster) to look into this as well as Zeiss (fat chance they would).

    I don't follow?

    The idea is to cover the whole frame instead of crop or digital gimmicks.
