probable slight loss of light?

I'd like a 1.4x and 2x TC just as the other shooters have available, despite the probable slight loss of light.

C'mon Steve,

Probable? Slight? Do you know how a teleconverter works? I suppose if you consider losing exactly (not probably) 50% (1.4x) or 75% (2x) of your light as "slight," then I'll consider myself enlightened.
