Tamron TC1.4 + tripod mount, nearly same price as Sigma 150-600!


I love, adore, my tamron 100-400. I felt a 1.4TC may be nice, and the optional tripod ring if shooting at 600mm. It works great the lens on my XT3.

I noticed though:

Tamron 1.4x TC: £449 (i cant find a used one)

Tamron tripod ring: £109

Total = £558

used sigma 150-600 c, like new: £ 749

The used Tamron 150-600 G2 id prefer, but its a bit more (£829, for only good condition)

I thought id just quickly "pick up" a teleconverter. Didn't realise it was nearly £500!

Is anyone else surprised at this? part of me would still like the TC, as its lighter than the 600mm, and I can keep my trusted 400mm. Has anyone got first hand experience of the Tamron TC?  I don't expect many people own a 400 and a 600 lens, both seems excessive.
