Was there a decent 1.4X FD teleconverter for lenses < 300mm?

Hi,

I'm contemplating buying FD lenses to use on an APSC  mirror-less system.  I've been browsing the net to look for a 1.4X Canon FD teleconverter but I'm not seeing anything suitable for use on lenses shorter than 300mm.  (I'm thinking of the 80-200mm f4L, and I'm not looking for a 2X).  The only Canon 1.4X seems to be designed specifically for the long L telephoto lenses 300mm and up.

Does anyone know whether the FD 1.4X will fit and work on that lens anyway?  From pictures, it looks like the elements might collide.  If that's not feasible, is there an independent brand FD 1.4/1.5X that FD users recognise and recommend highly?

Thanks in advance.

Regards, Rod
