Panasonic DMW-LT55 vs Olympus TCON-17?

It looks like I'm going to be ordering a Lumix FZ300 shortly and I'm planning on adding a telephoto conversion lens to extend the zoom range (mostly for birding). I'll be getting the DMW-LA7 adapter (55mm thread) and although the Nikon TC-E17ED looks great, the price and limited availability is a downer. I'm torn between the Panasonic DMW-LT55 vs Olympus TCON-17. The Panasonic is less expensive, but I've had good experience with the TCON-14B on my former FZ50.
I'm interested in any comparisons, comments, or recommendations to help make my decision. Is the TCON-17 worth the extra price or is the LT55 "good enough"?
