if you are looking at a screw on teleconverter, you will not be able to find on that will work on the oly properly. The screw on ones for bridge cameras are design with for a much smaller image circle then what a 4/3 camera needs. I was looking for one for my epl-1 thinking the contrast base AF will be able to obtain focus with the aperture lost, and tried many different brands. And they were all out of focus away from the center of the frame.
