I support every word Rick and Adrian have written above. You won't loose any reach with the 40-150. Maybe under perfect condition a little bit, but in non-perfect conditions the 40-150 is much better. You will gain many new opportunities like f2.8 or Macro.

Before I bought the 40-150, I struggled with a similar question as you do: 75-300 versus 50-200.

I posted sample images for 75-300 and 50-200. As the 40-150+TC is very similar in IQ to the 50-200+TC, while it is not exactly what you were asking for, it might be allowed to reference the old comparison:

Read it and replace 50-200 with 40-150. You will get a rough impression ...
