Sorry for a late answer, but I joined the forum only a couple of days ago.

Yes, I have used the Soligor 1.6x teleconverter with my Z3.

The quality is acceptable for my taste and sufficient for documentation. Chromatic aberations, already noticable at the long end of the Z3 lens without converter are enhanced. A tripod is essential. I made a quick test which you can find here:

If you have further questions, just ask.

Jorg I am impressed with your test shots, the converter and Z3 work well together. I particularly like the last 'cat' photo.
