tele extender

I'm in need of a telephoto extender for the EX-1. There's been a lot of discussion on this site in the past about poor performance from the Schneider/Century wide-angle adapters, and (I believe) those negative comments have been extended to the tele adapters as well. I don't want to drop a bunch of dough on a poorly-performing product, but I really could use a bit more length on the lens. Could folks chime in again as to whether or not the Schneider (or any other) product is acceptable? I don't need perfection, but I do need something that's decently sharp and reasonably fast.

mine ...

I have a tele-adaptor for my DVX 100 from Century Optics and it's clean with good clarity. The problem is vignetting up to 49 % at zoom, so, you get a usable lens from midway to the end of zoom.
