    So you can assume it won't work with anything else or they would have said.
    But they haven't announced the other lenses, just as they hadn't announced the future 300 f4 and 150-400 when the MC-14 was introduced that 'only' worked with the 40-150 f2.8.

    So, have Oly specifically stated the new PRO zooms will not work with MC-14 & MC-20?

    I see that Olympus have announced a new x2 tele converter, the MC 20. It will work with the 40-150 f2.8 Pro and the 300mm f4 Pro lenses.
    And Olympus have announced that it will work with the 150-400mm F4.5 Pro lens currently under development.

    But have Olympus declared whether (or not) their teleconverters will work with either of the planned PRO telephoto zooms shown on their 'roadmap'?

    Pro lenses, with their ball park ranges according to the new lens roadmap map, are as follows:

    • Wide Zoom Lens (9-30mm)
    • Standard Zoom Lens (10-40mm)
    Telephoto Zoom Lens (48-210mm)
    • Telephoto Zoom Lens (60-250mm)
    I can't recall seeing this discussed anywhere. If the 150-400 is far to expensive, if one of the above was compatible with a converter it could be a much more affordable alternative.

    Thanks Mark, yes I like it so far and no little metal chips either with this!

    Here are a few of the locals in our garden yesterday basking in the sun. All shot with the 40-150 and MC-20.

    Yeah, & likely a juvenile Satin Bowerbird as the mature male is black. Not our blue peg though. One could say we don't need to buy pegs because the bowerbirds collect them for us. So long as it is blue. Also, the males (& those learning) do thieve from each other too.

    Here is a chance photo I was lucky enough to be pointing the camera at when trying out the 40-150 with the newly acquired MC20.
    This is the resized full image
    (F5.6, 300mm, 1/250 sec., ISO 2000).

    And this is a 100% crop (but it will appear large here).

    It is a little grainy because of the high ISO.

    100% crop is a fragment of the full size image where 1 pixel of the image is 1 pixel on your screen (no resizing). Usually used for pixel peeping or checking image quality at full resolution of the original image - because we usually don't have monitors big enough that will show the full image at 1:1 pixel resolution! The others, I think you are right.
