70-200/2.8 GM II with Teleconverters vs. 100-400 GM
1

So I know everyone here has seen most of the reviews that claim the new 70-200/2.8 OSS GM II is super sharp and fast focusing. One key comment (at least for me) was one made by Gerald Undone that he thought the new lens with an existing 2X teleconverter could equal the performance of the FE 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 OSS GM. For me that could be huge allowing me to purchase the new version II and then sell of both my existing 70-200/2.8 version 1 and my 100-400. That would actually make the new lens relatively affordable I think.

Just wondering if anyone picked up on this and has heard anything more about this?
It would make it real easy to decide which lens I took with me. Would never have to choose again. Let us know if you have heard anything more about this. Thank you.
