... When using a TC with my current camera and the 4/300IS, AF is only useful for stationary subjects (slow, lots of hunting and 'overshoot'); for moving subjects I have to use MF because AF would never lock ...

Just to mention:
7D + EF300f/4L + TC1.4xII was quite bad. But not as bad as you say, as I understand on 450D.
5D3 in same combination is still worse than without TC, but a big improvement compared 7D + EF300f/4L + TC1.4xII. I expect 6D works also acceptable in the mentioned combination, since at least it's central AF is very capable. Of course, as long as you can keep the central AF on the subject in tracking.

Hope to have been helpful to you.
