Yep, shouldn't be a problem. The Kenko pro300 series are the ones to go for... and personally I'd stick to the 1.4x rather than the 2x, the latter really does put the quality of lens to the test and would be better off with high quality prime lenses rather than zoom lenses. Either way, you will need some good support for your set-up.
AF will still probably work with this lens + 1.4x teleconverter, but it will be slow and pretty unreliable in all but best light... you may be best to switch off AF and just use manual focus.

cheers,
Andy

Funnily enough, I was wondering about the exact same thing this weekend.

Thanks Andy, and thanks to Jace for asking.
