Has anyone done some test to compare the Olympus 75-300mm II at 300mm, against the 40-150mm f/2.8 + 1.4x teleconverter at 210mm cropped to match the former?

I currently have a 75-300mm II and I'm looking to replace it with a faster lens. I have the budget for the Olympus 300mm f/4, but I think the 40-150mm f/2.8 can be more useful for me overall. Just when to know what I should expect from the 40-150 + TC, and if I would really lose any reach.


How lucky that I was wandering by. That is exactly what I did.

My Review: 40-150, vs 40-150 + TC, vs 75-300.
