RF 1.4 extender worth it for 100-500?

I am finding it hard to find examples of the RF 100-500 with 1.4 extender. I am going to order the 100-500 i already decided on that point, for my R5 but now I am debating whether i should also pick up the 1.4 extender. I used to have a Nikon D500 and 200-500 and with that combo i was around 750mm with the crop factor. It was a great setup but i was tired of juggling two systems, nikon and canon because I had the R. So i consolidated it all into the R5. I sure did love that 200-500 lens and the constant 5.6 was great. But it was a big honking beast of a lens too. Any thoughts if it is worth the $500 to grab the 1.4 or should i just stick with the 100-500?
