ZS20 with Stacked E15ED and E17ED Teleconverters

I used this stacked combination on a tripod for the image of the nearly full moon shown below.


Above:  ZS20 at 480mm with stacked E15ED and E17ED; f/6.4, 1/100s, ISO100.


ZS20 with Stacked E15ED and Olympus C180 Teleconverters

These are some images of birds taken hand-held with and without the stacked TCs. Below is a pair of Pacific Black ducks taken from a distance of about 35m, at 480mm FL (equiv.), without any TC (14MP):

Below is the same pair of ducks from the same distance with the stacked TCs (full image 14MP):

This is a crop from the above image:

Below is is a a 100% crop (shown at the left) of the image without TC upsized to match the magnification of the stacked TC image, compared with a 100% crop of the stacked TC image:


Above:  100% crops compared, with the stacked TCs image at the right


As can be seen in the crops, there is considerable gain in IQ and in the amount of detail captured by using the ZS20 with the stacked TCs compared with using the ZS20 alone.


Below is a shot of a male Darter, taken with the stacked TCs from a further distance than the ducks:

Below is a shot of a Little Black Cormorant taken with the stacked TCs from about 45m:

Below is a shot of a pelican taken with the stacked TCs from a distance of about 8m:
