The only downside to the 100-500 + TC is you have to extend the lens to 300mm before adding the TC. Not a problem while shooting, but you can’t fully retract the lens to carry or store unless you remove the TC.

David, I’m very confused by what you are describing.  I’m reading this as, lens is fully retracted but I can’t attached the TC to the lens and unless I turn the zoom ring to 300mm.  Then the opposite you can’t retract the lens all the way with the TC still on?

This is so different that the EF 100-400 and EF 70-200 with a 1.4.
