Price for the EC-14 and EC-20 is almost the same, why not to buy just EC-20 instead of having both ?, usually a TC is needed to increase focal length, so 2.0 is better than 1.4, I am not an expert, so maybe my analysis is not correct, thoughts?, thanks

Hmmm, you are right. The EC-20 has come down since its release (it used to be $100 or so more than the EC-14).

One minor issue is that the EC-20 is bigger than the EC-14. I have 2 or 3 bags which I can just barely fit an E-3, EC-14, and 50-200mm (non-SWD), and when I last was looking at the EC-20 1-2 years ago, I could not fit the combo in the bag, because it made it too tall.
