Why offer a 1.4x Teleconverter ?

Why offer this little piece of hardware instead of providing the functionality on the lens? I guess just to keep the lens cheaper? Or have more mag with out carrying another lens?

Is this hardware as good (or close to it ) to having an addition 1.4x lens?

Just very curios about this piece.

When looking for a lens should I think... Hey I can save some $ and buy a bit less magnification and use my teleconverter piece? Or is it just a gimmick?

Thanks
