Did anybody try the W and tele converters on PanaLeica 25 mm/1.4 on Oly cameras? Like those:


Is IQ acceptable? In WA case, does it really become something like 11mm f/1.4? Does IBIS work properly with them, and do you need to set something manually after attaching the converters?

IQ isn't even acceptable with my high quality 0.75 Wide converter Sony VCL-ECU1. The Sony does very well on the 14/f2.5, but not on the 25/f1.4  Here are two photos I just took:
