MC-14 + Panasonic 100-300mm

Has anyone had any experience using the MC-14 with the Panasonic 100-300 lens? How compatible are they regarding sharpness. I have a great copy of the Panasonic lens - super sharp at all apertures and was wondering about image degradation with the MC-14 converter.

The MC-14 is designed to work with the 40-150 & 300 PRO lenses. I don't think it will fit the 100-300.

There is a protruding element from the TC which goes into the lens. It will only work on the 40-150 and 300 Oly "Pro" lenses. There are also extra pins.

Thanks for the information. I sort of suspected there was some type of incompatibility there but was not sure specifically.
