Using 2x convertor with Minolta dimage z3

Just returned from using a 2x convertor on my Minolta Dimage z3 for the first time. Purchased it on e-bay for about 25 and first impressions are good. The photos seem quite sharp at the centre though they lose it at the edge. As this usually gets cropped it's not a major worry though.
The convertor steps me up to 24x optical or 840mm equivalent. All photos were taken hand held but using the anti shake mode on the camera.

I hope you're still around

....but it doesn't look good.

What kind of teleconverter was it? I've scoured high and low and I haven't found anybody who has had any luck with a teleconverter on a Z3.
