R1 Tele-converter?

Hello all,

I have recently purchased the adaptor and tele-converter for my R1. Although I have been more than happy with the lens' range to date I am off to Africa soon on safari. Does anyone have experience of using this monstrosity on their R1 and what IQ can I expect from this glass? Will dust be able to enter between the lenses? I will be using it with a monopod as a tripod will not be practical on the move. If there is any well informed advice out there I'd be interested to hear it.

I am fully aware that it only give me 210mm approx focal length but I like my R1 too much to go down the SLR route yet as I don't see any massive advantages yet, only massive costs!

Thanks Bav.
