Using Sigma, Canon telepconverter and Fringer adapter on Fuji bodies

I just discover that the following combination works very well:

Fuji X-T20 body

Fringer EF-FX (mk I) adapter (to adapt Canon EF/ EFS lenses to Fuji X mount)

Sigma 70-200mm f2.8 OS (Canon mount)

Canon 1.4X extender mk II

First thing first - the teleconverter fit onto the 70-200 (there is enough recess at the rear of the 70-200 to accommodate the protruding component of the Canon 1.4X II)

Second thing is - everything work properly on the Fuji body: autofocus is quick and accurate (even in dim indoor light). OS works quite well (probably not as well as without the teleconverter (I did not do a proper "number of f-stop gain" test), and the image quality is actually very good and definite more than decent (though not as good as a Canon prime lens such as 300mm f4, at the same f-stop). However, the canon 300mm f4 IS is definitely lighter and more compact than the 70-200+ 1.4X.
