Close use versus far use

I heard the 1.4 converter wasn't very good on the 200-400, well your
image blows that out of the water...

I never had an issue with the 200-400 at or near minimum focus distance even using any of the converters. I only have issue with the lens as the distance increases. The hummingbird example is one that show this effect. That image had to be taken at or near the minimum focus distance of the lens.
