I'm not so sure the converter is going to make gold out of glass.  Faster yes,  but there has got to be a downside.  More CA, more distortion... If you could make cheap glass great, why make expensive glass?

So far a 0.7x focal reducer worked very well on APS-C, bringing it very close to the level of FF in speed and resolution, there are many sample photos posted. The problems were mostly with fast telephoto lenses with large output pupil. The 0.5x focal reducer for m4/3 is more difficult to do and that's probably why there isn't one for sale now, but that may change in the nearest future.
