A zoom with a 1.4x? No thanks.

Putting a 1.4tc on a DA*60-250mm or Sigma 100-300mm isn't that bad is it? Sure IQ suffers a little, but results don't seem to be that bad. Of course everyone has different standards.

Jens has a Tokina 80-400/5.6. He made good use of it at the Wanaka air show, at f11.
At F11 it was at least as good as my FA*400/5.6.
I can understand the popularity of a cheap f5.6 zoom.

The FA*250-600/5.6 though. I bet they sold under 500 of them. and they sell for 1.1m yen new? Not what I would call "a good place".

See your point, though, but both are bit more high end still.
