Canon 70-210mm f/4 with a 1.4x extender?

Firstly I'd like to say hi to everyone here as this is my first post

I was wondering if the lens in the thread subject (yes its the discontinued 1987 one) was compatible with the canon 1.4x extender, as i was considering buying one.

On the canon site, it gives a list of compatible lenses, however with the 70-210 being discontinued in the 90s it may not appear on there. It does give the advice that it will not be compatible if the max aperture will be over f/5.6. (It should be just on 5.6 right?)

It would be great if anyone offer any advice as to whether it will be compatible, or if anyone has the lens lying around and could test it.

If it helps, im using it with a 1000d/Rebel XS

Cheers, Dave
