Default HS10 with TC-DC58x

After reading intensively about many reviews and comparisons here, it's likely my choice will be HS10.
As my works in forests and nature need a massive zoom, HS10 has already incredible zoom though, I'm considering to order a tele-converter also.
I don't want to use step-down ring (for TCON-17). So the options are between Canon's TC-DC58 (1.5x), TC-DC58C (2x) or one from Sony.
Any opinion? Does anyone have any experience with those converters?
Also considering the DC-58C's large dimension and heavy weight, will it affect the HS10's lens, performance and IQ?
Thanks in advance

I have the Sony 1.7x converter from when I bought the Sony 12x H1 camera. It was a perfect match. Later, I used the lens with the Panasonic FZ20 and the Canon S2 and I also obtained great results. The converter is excellent, very light and sharp producing very very little to no PF. The only negative is the fact that it does not have front thread so no filter can be attached to it. I have no experience with the Canon converters. You might also consider some Raynox converters. They are excellent. I have a Raynox DCR-6600 PRO WA and find it to be awesome. So, I'm sure their tele-converters are just as good.

With exception of the raynox 2025pro; it causes pretty strong fringing.
