Put a 10.900$ lens on the Panasonic G2!


You are not going to see such a combination very often. “Mister Le” has taken some image samples with the Panasonic G2 (which costs $799.00) and the über-expensive Canon EF 800mm f/5.6 L IS USM Lens (£11,099.00 on Amazon UK)Canon EF 800mm 1:5,6L IS USM Lens (12.568,98 on Amazon Deutschland!)Canon EF 800mm 1:5,6L IS USM Lens (12.568,98 on Amazon Deutschland!)Canon EF 800mm f/5.6 (EUR 12.434,99 on Amazon France!)Canon EF 800mm f/5.6L IS USM Super Telephoto Lens (over 10.00o$…Click here to see it for yourself !!)Canon EF 800mm f/5.6L IS USM Super Telephoto Lens (over 10.00o$…Click here to see it for yourself !!)

The funny thing is that he used a 2x teleconverter on it…that makes 800mm x2 (converter) x2 (FourThirds) = 3.200mm!!!

    800mm focal length is still 800mm on micro 4/3. However, only half the image circle is used. The magnification is 32x over the “normal” 25mm focal length of micro 4/3. With the 2x teleconverter, the magnification is 64x. Saying that the focal length is 3200mm is misleading, as this implies 128x magnification. Anyway, still cool.

    Would love to see a moon shot with this combination.

    No, no, no.
    Thats putting the G2 on a 10,900$ lens.

    And when you finish, you can store the G2 inside the lens hood.

  • Incredible result on the combination. The question is how much editing needed on the original photos?

    However, this is like witnessing Mini Me drive a Hummer.

  • Mister le

    No editing just a little straightening .
