Let's try the long refractors stopped down a bit. I wasn't quite consistent here, and forgot to shoot the Zuiko 600 stopped down without the teleconverter.

Tamron 300/2.8@5.6Zuiko 300/4.5@8Zuiko 600/6.5@11
  • Tamron 300mm ƒ2.8, ƒ5.6
  • Zuiko 300mm ƒ4.5, ƒ8
1.4x
  • Olympus 1.4X-A teleconverter, Tamron 300mm ƒ2.8, ƒ5.6
  • ƒ4.5, Olympus 1.4X-A teleconverter, Zuiko 300mm ƒ4.5, ƒ8
2x
  • Olympus 2X-A teleconverter, Tamron 300mm ƒ2.8, ƒ5.6
  • Olympus 2X-A teleconverter, Zuiko 300mm ƒ4.5, ƒ8
  • Olympus 2X-A teleconverter, Zuiko 600mm ƒ6.5, ƒ11
And in detail:

  • Tamron 300mm ƒ2.8, ƒ5.6, CROP
  • Zuiko 300mm ƒ4.5, ƒ8, CROP
1.4x
  • Olympus 1.4X-A teleconverter, Tamron 300mm ƒ2.8, ƒ5.6, CROP
  • ƒ4.5, Olympus 1.4X-A teleconverter, Zuiko 300mm ƒ4.5, ƒ8, CROP
2x
  • Olympus 2X-A teleconverter, Tamron 300mm ƒ2.8, ƒ5.6, CROP
  • Olympus 2X-A teleconverter, Zuiko 300mm ƒ4.5, ƒ8, CROP
  • Olympus 2X-A teleconverter, Zuiko 600mm ƒ6.5, ƒ11, CROP
The Tamron is STILL a dog, and the Zuiko 300/4.5 still beats it easily, although the Tamron again cleans up nicely with the teleconverters — the opposite of what we're always told.


What's really interesting is that the Zuiko 600 doesn't look any better at ƒ11 than it did wide open. I'm liking this lens more and more!
