Olympus MC-20 (High-res)

Olympus has released the M.Zuiko Digital 2x Teleconverter MC-20, doubling the focal length of the 300mm f/4 IS PRO lens, plus the 40-150mm f/2.8 PRO lens. The teleconverter will be available from early July, with an RRP of £399.


From Olympus: London, 19 June 2019 - Olympus today released their 2x Teleconverter unveiled in January 2019 and announced firmware updates for their professional OM-D camera line-up.

The new M.Zuiko Digital 2x Teleconverter MC-20 doubles the focal length of the master lens and features excellent portability as well as Olympus’ acclaimed weather sealing. It can be attached to the M.Zuiko Digital ED 300mm F4.0 IS PRO as well as ED 40-150mm F2.8 PRO lenses and will also be compatible with the ED 150-400mm F4.5 TC1.25x IS PRO lens currently in development. It will be available for sale from early July at a RRP1 of £399.99.


M.Zuiko Digital 2x Teleconverter MC-20 Main Features:

  • Doubles focal length of master lens while maintaining its imaging performance
  • Dust-, splash- and freezeproof
  • Sophisticated construction with 9 lens elements in 4 groups
  • Compatible lenses: M.Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm F2.8 PRO, M.Zuiko Digital ED 300mm F4.0 IS PRO, M.Zuiko Digital ED 150-400mm F4.5 TC1.25x IS PRO (planned for 2020)

M.Zuiko Digital 2x Teleconverter MC-20: More freedom with handheld super telephoto (macro) shooting at 1200mm (35mm equivalent)

The new M.Zuiko Digital 2x Teleconverter MC-20 maintains the excellent imaging performance of the master lens while doubling the focal length for higher magnification. Extending the lens to double its original focal length makes it possible to capture intense shots of subjects that are usually difficult to approach, including small birds or other animals. When attached to the M.Zuiko Digital ED 300mm F4.0 IS PRO, handheld super telephoto shooting at 1200mm (35mm equivalent) is possible, as well as close-up shots near actual size at 0.96x (35mm equivalent) at the maximum shooting magnification. This makes the MC-20 ideal for telemacro photography (with blurred background effects).

A 9-element, 4-group lens construction helps to suppress various types of aberrations while maintaining the excellent optical performance of the master lens. The design also helps prevent ghosting and flare for superb imaging performance. Same as every M.Zuiko PRO lens and all professional OM-D bodies, the MC-20 features a dust-, splash- and freezeproof construction to withstand even the harshest weather conditions.
