I already have a FA* 300 4.5, a FA* 80-200 2.8 and a A* 200 2.8, so I guess I am not willing to pay the price the Tamron 300 2.8 goes for right now since I don't see it giving me any sharper images than I get now. I also have the AF 1.7 TC and it works fine with all my lenses, but I can see a slight loss of sharpness with the TC on all my A* primes, but supply and demand sets the price and they are not making any more.

I have had most of my FA* and A* lenses since my PZ-1 and MZ-S film days, so I got them at a reasonable price and even the A* 200 2.8 I got from a different forum member in Holland for a great price. Personally I would not spend the $800-$1,000 it will cost for the lens, and TC's, but then that is me.
