Olympus TCON-14 with E-PL1?

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.

To those that don't know, this is a screw-on teleconverter that fits to the front of the lens. It has the advantage of not losing light, but I think it's more of an optical compromise with some lenses (although when matched to a certain camera or lens, like the old E-10 and E-10, can work very well). The other disadvantage is the weight and bulk.

For that reason I would not recommend using this on a Pen E-PL1, especially on the 14-42 kit lens. You would probably break the lens in two!

So be very very careful.
