    Both teleconverter and extension tube will increase of magnification

    Teleconverter will increase the focusing distance however extension tube reduces the focusing distance.

    Extension tube is cheaper due to there is no len element ( hollow ).

    Depend on your need, if you are taking something e.g. animal, bird, landscape, etc far away, you need a teleconverter. For nearby distance like flower, butterfly, an extension tube is good enuff.

    not forgetting that the teleconverter will introduce some quality loss in image.

    take a look at the old thread on apr Oly expedition:
    http://forums.clubsnap.org/showthread.php?t=128973 (moved to world of nature?)

    i have pasted a 100% crop for the ZD150, one with tele & one w/o. u will notice some drop in details.

    megaweb has highlighted a very important point: what r u shooting?

    i think the answer to this qn will give u the final purchase decision.
