The 2x converter will fit the current 40-150mm F2.8 and 300mm F4 lenses as well as the new 150-400mm so that's one good point. I'm thinking of getting the 1.4x some time but will wait for the tests...

It certainly looks like the 40-150mm F2.8, though the lenshood is not the standard issue. Could just be the photographer's own lens with a different hood (the original has come in for some...

Well, I'm not aware of either possibility, so that's why I phrased it as a question - I could just have easily have done it the other way round! As the 'colon' is a first port of call for BA and...
