Lens converters for EX1/EX3

Has anyone compared, or seen a comparison, between Schneider's Century .75X HD Wide Angle Converter ( .75X W/A HD CONVERTER EX1/EX3 - Schneider Optics ) and 16x9 Inc.'s EX 0.75 Aspheric Wide Converter ( 16x9 | Distributor of Film & Digital Products )?

Is anyone here using either of these converters on his/her EX1/EX3?

Good question. I have been wondering the same thing myself. I see ZGC sells both.

I would be very careful evaluating any HD Wide Angle adaptor product. My experience was Century was a bit better optically than 16x9 product for XLH1. No guarantee that the results will be the same for EX series. I did feel that Schneider evaluated their own product more critically than 16x9.
