Features


Super-telephoto shooting up to 1200mm (35mm equivalent)

The MC-20 utilises the high quality of the master lens to double the focal length. When paired with the M.Zuiko Digital ED 300mm F4.0 IS PRO, 1200mm (35mm equivalent) super-telephoto shooting is possible.

Superb image quality

A lens configuration that suppresses aberrations

This lens configuration uses 9 elements in 4 groups, including an HR lens. While maintaining the high optical performance of the master lens, aberrations including chromatic aberration are suppressed.

ZERO Coating

ZERO coating (Zuiko Extra-low Reflection Optical coating) is used on many lens elements to reduce ghosts and flares.

MTF curve

  • M.Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm F2.8 PRO + MC-20 MTF curve at 80mm, F5.6
  • M.Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm F2.8 PRO + MC-20 MTF curve at 300mm, F5.6

High reliability

Fast AF

Fast AF lets you capture the right moment. There is virtually no drop in AF speed compared to using the master lens on its own when the MC-20 is attached.



Powerful image stabilisation

Even when the MC-20 is attached, the powerful image stabilisation of both the camera body and master lens remain effective. This design makes it possible to capture high-quality hand-held super-telephoto images.

Compact and lightweight

Weight when combined with OM-D E-M1X+M.Zuiko Digital ED 300mm F4.0 IS PRO+MC-20 is 2,622g (including tripod base plate)

This 2x teleconverter features a compact, lightweight, 150-gram design. It is highly mobile, making it perfect for super-telephoto photography in any kind of scene.

Dustproof, splashproof and freezeproof

The superb splashproof, dustproof, and freezeproof design means that it can be used in even the most punishing shooting environments.


A sophisticated, integrated design

Rhythmic lines that take inspiration from the M.Zuiko Digital ED 300mm F4.0 IS PRO master lens lend an integrated, sophisticated feel to the design.
