Lens for Macro TC/Raynox

I have just bought a KAX Macro Teleplus MC7 2x Teleconverter which I plan to use with my FA43 initially, but I am also looking at trying a Raynox converter too on top of that.
A lot of people recommend a cheap 50mm K/A lens to use with the TCs.

I gather with the MC7, with a 50mm Lens it gives 1:1 magnification, and maybe a little more with the FA43?

And you get vignetting at any wider angles <50mm with both the T/C and Raynox converters?

Has anyone used both a 2x Macro T/C and the Raynox 150/250 together with a ~50mm lens? What sort of results have you got?
