Which wide angle converter for Pano 14mm f2.5: Pano DMW-GWC1 or Sony VCL-ECU1

Apparently Sony wide angle converter (VCL-ECU1) can be used with Panasonic 14mm f2.5 to make it a 10.5mm.

Which converter is better with 14mm f2.5 : Pano DMW-GWC1 or Sony VCL-ECU1?

Has anyone used Sony wide angle converter VCL-ECU1 with Panasonic 14mm f2.5? How is it attached? Any issues?

If there are no issues in attaching it, Sony wide angle converter has the following advantages over Pano DMW-GWC1 :

1) $20 cheaper

2) Little bit wider than Panasonic, so 14mm becomes 10.5mm instead of 11mm (0.75 magnification as oppose to 0.79)
