I have a Raynox DCR-500 0.5x converter. How would it work on 14-140? Anybody has this combination? I have tested it on some compacts and I find it pretty good. Some corner softness but with distortion correction it is less of a problem, and I still have very wide FOV.

I couldn't find any info on the DCR-500 but there's a DCR-5000. That has a mounting thread of 52mm whereas the 14-140mm has a 62mm filter ring. You'll need a step down filter but even then, it'll most likely vignette heavily.

Check out this thread where I attached a Canon WC-DC58B to my 14-140mm. At least that's one option although it's only 0.75x.
