20mm f2.8 canon with 2x kenko

Hi there,

I have a Canon EOS 500 film camera that I fixed up, a 20mm f2.8 Canon lens lying around and a 2x mc7 kenko converter. I just like to know why it is not recommended to use a converter on a lens wider than 50mm? The 20mm lens will be 40mm f5.6, I can understand IQ could become soft and edges even softer.

I just want to use the camera and lens for experimenting with.

Thanks
Grant

If it's only for experimenting with. Go for it!
