I just picked up the MC20. I've had the MC14 for a while. The MC14 is okay (seems to work better on the 300 than the 40-150 for me), but the MC20 seems noticeably better than the MC14 so far. I just got it yesterday so I haven't done much testing, but the quick shots I took yesterday looked really good. I plan to get out this weekend and shoot some comparisons.
Okay, after a "slight" delay, I remembered this thread and have a couple of comparisons to post. Be sure to click through and zoom into the full res photos. I think I cropped them a little differently but honestly can't remember at this point. All taken with the E-M5.2.

Shot a moonrise recently, sharing 2 of it here. All shot with E-M1X. Both used with Topaz Denoise to clean up the noise levels, mounted on my Leofoto Tripod and a hybrid geared head. Singapore Flyer in the frame.

Found this photo op at a local wetland over the weekend...

...kind of a bummer as a tight crop shows that the pelican is hooked from it's gular pouch to it's foot. It doesn't seem to be any worse for wear at this point so hopefully it pulls through...

Just an initial test shot of a house finch at the bird feeder (got a used copy of the lens a few days ago). So far it's good fun, though certainly larger than I am used to.

Gave the lens a bit of a workout today. Certainly a good performer.
