Tamron 1.4 X TC with Tamron 28-75 , any experience ?

This is my verry first post .
I already own the 1.4X TC but I'm considering getting the 28-75 . So I was wondering how this combination works in picture quality ?
Thanks

Welcome to the forums. I have both but have never used them in combination as I have another lens that covers the same range and would be faster than the combo. I'll give it a quick test for you but my experience with the 1.4 and my Sigma 70-200 f2.8 has been very positive (fast focus, good IQ and sharp) and would expect the same from the 28-75.

I'm in Japan right now, my 28-75 is my main lens. But i'm also looking for the 1.4 TC. I can't find it anywhere in Osaka. All i can find is the 1.5 Kenko, and it produces very soft images.

Seems the image IQ did not deteriote that much with the 1.4TC. Is it possible for me to download the actual images so that I can pixel peep on my pc?
