Without mechanical changes on the Metabones it cannot fit, because the Oly 1.4 has a special form to transmit additonal informations from the 4/300 for ex. to the body on its side to the lens. So you would have to mill off (with a Dremel ) a part of the Metabones to use it in that way. Than the combination works, but it is only a bit better than with a Canon 1.4 converter in combination with the 5.6/400 L.

I see a projection and an extra couple of contacts inside the MC-14. Is that the part you mean?

Yes ! Therefore it is unusable.
