That’s what’s nice about using a native telecon on an adapter.
The MC-14 also protrudes considerably, which keeps it from working on all but a
few “Pro” micro 4/3rds lenses, but with an adapter, it will work with ALL OM
With the 350/2.8 (at least), I see no difference in results from the OM 1.4X-A
or the MC-14. (I’d say the EC-14 is slightly below these two.)
The only practical difference is convenience. I often keep the OM 1.4X-A on the
350/2.8, and so don’t have to mess around with “double changes."
