to attach it i glued a 58mm step down ring onto the teleconverter and screwed it to the front of the mpe

I just got my teleconverter yesterday. I don't have mounting hardware yet, so I've only experimented with handholding. I noticed that the focus distance changes with the distance from the MPE to the teleconverter. The greater the distance, the closer the focus, so with a different mounting setup, I think it should be possible to increase the focus range.
