Re: Ditto 'hawk's comments... I'll second that motion...

I shoot with a 1.4x a lot on this lens, and I'd much rather have a fov of a 157mm -448mm f4.0 than f5.6 any day. I don't look at performance graphs for lenses much, I look at photos from the lenses instead. Any lenses I buy I test at the store, head home, see many shots on the monitor from the lens and then decide if I like what I see. If I don't like what I see, sometimes I'll try a 2nd example of that lens. Without the 1.4x on, I frequently go wider than f4.0 because in some situations I have to. There's no subsitute for a fast lens!
