In my fairly extensive experience, including real-life shots and test charts, 
the best focal reducers and tele-extenders are pretty much invisible, allowing 
the qualities (or lack thereof) of the underlying optics to shine through.

The converse is also true: a crappy focal reducer or tele-extender will make a 
mess of the finest lens.

I used to be a skeptic. "How can 'adding glass' make things any better?" But 
then I got out there and shot with numerous combos of focal reducers, 
tele-extenders, and lenses.

I think the inverse power law applies: whichever one is "worse" is going to 
dominate.
