[OM] Question about EC-14 teleconverter

Subject: [OM] Question about EC-14 teleconverter

I just bought the EC-14 teleconverter for my E3 (sometimes one needs  
the extra focal length to get closer to the señoritas...). In reading  
the instructions, I see that Olympus says to put the converter on the  
camera, and then mount the lens onto the converter. To remove,  
reverse the procedure.

On my Canon outfit, I always mount the lens on the converter and then  
mount the whole thing onto the camera. Is there any reason why  
Olympus recommends a different procedure? Will I harm anything  by  
first attaching the lens to the converter and then attaching the  
combo to the camera?

And a second question: what will happen if I put my 100mm Leica lens  
(with adapter of course) onto the converter? Is there a risk of  
damaging anything? Intuitively it should not matter, my 100mm Apo  
Macro 2.8 should just turn into a 140mm f4 lens with manual focusing  
of course.

TIA,
Nathan
