Century Precision Optics 0HD-20TC-EX1 2X Teleconverter?

Wondering...truly worth the investment by those of us who own an EX3?

When I see the words "offers partial zoom through capability" in the description...my gut reaction is "no".

However there's a side of me thinking I might be wrong.

Re: Century Precision Optics 0HD-20TC-EX1 2X Teleconverter?

John,

I have the Century 1.6 teleconverter for the EX series and I wouldn't trade it for anything. If I could find a decent price for a used 2.0, I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

My lens is tack sharp, especially after I sent it into Schneider for some warranty repair. They quickly fixed a focusing issue and had it back to me in a very short time.

I think the "partial zoom through capability" should actually refer to being able to zoom out. You get vignetting at some point -- can't remember exactly where is appears with my lens -- but I didn't buy it for wide-angle shots. It's a telephoto lens and that's what I use it for.

Phil

Can't thank you enough for the info Phil.

I value those who have real hands on experience with gear I'm interested in.

Just reading the "tack sharp" comment has me getting ready to buy myself a Christmas gift...after January 1!

Thanks! ;)
