Be careful when trying to use TC's with the 70-200VR. I have heard the 1.4 does not perform well with it, and I know the 1.7 does not. You have to either stop down the lens considerably, or lay off the zoom to get the lens combination to be sharp. This sort of defeats the purpose of the fast 2.8 and adding the TC for length.
