    You would be stretching it with a converter on those lenses.Grin Actually you would lose auto-focus. You would be much better off taking the photos without the TC and cropping in to enlarge the subjects.

    I believe the G5 has the same sensor as the OM-D, which I use, and I find that cropping still leaves a good resolution image, even when using 800 ISO.

    There`s nothing stopping you Smile

    But there`s no long telephoto`s for M4/3, so no tele converters, legacy will be the best option.
