Very Nice Converter
I have had my micro 4/3, MC-14, 1.4 X tele converter for about a week, and it works very well on the 40-150 Pro lens. I get a reach of 210mm (420mm on a 35mm system), which gives a good image size at 40 to 50 feet. With my 50-200 and its 1.4X converter, at the same distance, a squirrel fills the frame about 35 or 40 percent; so this should result in the squirrel filling maybe 30 percent of the image frame, which would allow for a good composition. I’ll wait for a warmer day to put peanuts where I want the squirrel, and then wait for that magic moment. Image quality of everything I have shot thus far has produced very sharp images. I just have to adjust ISO high enough to get a faster shutter speed (if shooting in “A” mode) or select a faster shutter speed to compliment the focal length. When trying to be mobile, I like the feel of the set-up of my E-M1 with the 40-150 Pro and the MC-14, both with and without the HLD-7 battery grip; but definitely WITH the grip is better. Using a faster shutter speed still, say 1/2000, really helps when shooting a long lens hand held. (the lens and your converter make up your focal length) The only problem I find is, my MC-14 converter is Very tight when mounting to my E-M1; it is really difficult to remove. I do Not see how Olympus’s Quality Control or Engineering Design Team could miss tolerances so much on the MC-14, when they have the MMF-3 unit to go by, for example.

A high-quality teleconverter
I was pleasantly surprised with the image quality I get with this teleconverter. I definitely recommend the M.Zuiko teleconverter!

Solid construction - excellent boost and quality
I'm using this on Olympus' M.Zuiko 40-150mm f2.8 lens. You lose one stop of light sensitivity (f2.8 becomes f4.0 automatically) and gain substantial zoom. The MC-14 teleconverter is just as well built as the PRO series lens it attaches to. When you see its size you'll realize how easy it is to travel with via pocket, carry pouch or small camera bag spot. In use, photo quality remains excellent. It will only work for the lenses specified by Olympus (40-150mm f2.8 PRO & 300mm f4.0 IS PRO (late 2017) - don't experiment and risk damaging other lenses).

Great way to add some reach to the 40-150mm f/2.8!
Bought this to add a bit of reach to my 40-150mm f/2.8 Pro, and I'm very pleased. First impression was how tiny it was! I used the EC-14 on the 50-200mm f/2.8-3.5, so I haven't recovered all the reach I had with that lens, but for extended walks this is a much more comfortable solution. The optic performs superbly, and the fit is excellent both to the body and the lens.

Useful teleconverter
The only lens I have that is compatible with this teleconveter is the 40-150mm f/2.8 and I can say this combo works very well. The weather-sealing is maintained, the optical penalty is minimal as far as I can tell (as has been shown in technical reviews), the fast focus speed is maintained, and the size and weight increase is minimal. Highly recommended!
