Would love to see it in the 70-200 2.8 and I imagine it would sell quite well. That is my current telephoto setup, the 70-200 2.8L (non IS) and 1.4xii extender. But adding and removing it is a minor annoyance and boy would I love to have it built in. Doubt I could afford it though, as I bought the non-IS because I could not afford the ISii.

Now if they arranged it so you could buy the lens by itself, and have the TC as an add-in module which you could switch in and out of the path without opening anything to dust then they'd have a real killer; You could decide which one to use and install it in a clean environment and not be stuck with it permanently.
...Then again I'll probably see a left-threaded jar of pickled chicken lips before that happens.
Grat idea, swing in extender. I guess it would be an extension tube when swung out
I think there would have to be some permanent elements to adjust for added distance to the focal plane, then the swing in elements.
