Own a 70-200 f/2.8 mkII rent a 100-400 or a 2x tele

I have a 7D and a 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS USM mkII lens.

I shoot birds in my backyard and wind up cropping a lot of images and losing detail.

A local store rents equipment and the Canon 100-400 f/4.5-6.3 L IS to rent for $35 and a 2x tele (mk1) to rent for $25.

I called them up and they said I'd get better pictures with the 100-400 so thats what I have reserved for next weekend.

The thing is... I'm not sure I would buy it though. I'd be more inclined to buy a 2x tele because of the price.

I'd just hate to fall in love with the 100-400 because I'd have to sell my 70-200 if I wanted to buy one.
