An Alternative to the Pana Leica 200 2.8 is...

It's late in the afternoon, so forgive me, but if I took a Canon 200mm F2.8 L II USM and threw on a Metabones Speedbooster Ultra I'd effectively have a 400mm F2.0 Equivalent, correct?

This combo would cost about half of the Pana Leica 200 and WEIGH about half of the Leica.  You would give up weather sealing but the main question is would the CAF on something like an EM1ii be good enough to capture BIF, wildlife, or surfing?

Hmm.  Thoughts?
