image quality with the conversion lens looks very good. There is some obvious blur in the outer corners, but CA and distortion seem well under control.

I guess quality would be even better if you remove the UV filter; for many WA converters it is VERY important that they are as close as possible to the front lens.

If you are afraid of damaging the lens, first try with a clean sheet of paper or plastic between the lenses and cautiously mount the converter. You can see they are going to touch before any damage is done.
