EC-14 for Walkabout

Hi everybody,

I have just read the recent thread about the EC-14, and would like to ask another question.

If I am going out with a specific photo shoot in mind, I always take all the equipment that I might need. However a lot of my photography is done in "walkabout" mode where I take a camera but do not have a specific target. I like to travel light and I usually carry a small bag with just a body and the 14-54, spare BLM-1 and CF.

I sometimes find I would like more reach than the 14-54 gives, but in circumstances where the 40-150 and 50-200 are at home, because they are too heavy.

I was thinking that an EC-14 would fit in the small bag and give useful extra FL. It can also go with the 50-200 for birds and sport.

I do not want the EC-20 as I do not want to lose 2 stops of speed, Also it is bigger and heavier.

Has anyone else used the EC-14 with the 14-54? How well did it work?
Was there any effect on focus speed?

I would appreciate hearing of anyone's experience of this combo.
