150-600 vs 70-300 + 2x TC

I have the 70-300 w/ 1.4 tc and am very pleased with the output. The new 150-600 looks like an amazing $2k lens, but I wonder whether the 2x TC, which turns the 70-300 into a 140-600, with roughly identical apertures (taking account of the loss of light due to the TC) for $449 new makes sense for the non professional. Lighter, smaller, a bit more than half price all in. Anybody else thinking along these lines?
