the 135L isn't the sharpest partner for a 1.4x TC:

The 1.4x TC is a much cheaper (and lighter) option than the 70-200 II, but if you can afford it and don't mind the weight, the 70-200 II really is something else.
5D II | 24-70 II | 70-200 II | 100L | 40 | Sigma 50/1.4 | 40D | 10-22 | 17-55 | 580 EX II | 1.4x TC II
