glad I used it first on the old camera as I can wrap my head around the effect of the TC from a known point of reference. I think. hey I never claimed I knew what I was doing and don't but a bigger lens is still a year away but for $400 I can make due for now.
1.7 take it away. these aren't great but they don't suck. the TC cuts down on light but the light wasn't good to start with. had fun never the less.
