E-PL1 and Oly TCON-14 Teleconverter?

Any ideas on how the images might turn out with this Oly brand 1.4x teleconverter? It'll be on a 46mm to 40.5mm step down adaptor ring.

Many thanks.

I wouldn't try this - the lens (assuming it's the Pen's m.Zuiko 14-42 standard kit zoom) won't stand the weight and bulk of the TCON-14 stuck on the end of it. It won't focus for a start and you risk damaging the lens, seriously.
