FA* 300 mm f4,5 with Tamron 1.4 TC Users PICS PLEASE

I recently bought a FA*300 and like it a lot, i used a Promaster 1.7 TC with it but find that it takes to much light from the lens (AF is ok), so i have been searching for alternatives and found the Tamron 1.4 TC, which seems well regarded. Nontheless before buying the TC i would like to hear your opinion about this particular combination and if possible see some Photos taken with this combo.

Thanks a lot in advance

You'll end up with a 450mm f/6.3 lens which I think is too dark for focusing accurately for something as hard as birding.
