Luckily I can use the ZD 150 F2 with the 2x converter for a 300 F4.0 long lens, but a dedicated prime at this length would be incredibly wonderful for me.

How does IQ compare with 1.4X and the 2X vs no TC?

I haven't done extensive testing on any M4/3 gear, but I know that when I tested it on my old E-5, I couldn't really notice any loss with the 1.4x TC.  The 2x TC degraded things a bit, but it didn't keep me from getting some great shots with that setup that held up to a fair amount of cropping.
