I would be wary of using it with the 70-300, which I think has a max. aperture of f5.6 (at the long end). With the EC-14 your max. aperture becomes f8, so it must be dark for viewing and a challenge for the focussing. This is partly why I am thinking of an EC-14 rather than an EC-20, with my my 14-54 and 50-200 I will get a max. aperture of f5.6, rather than f8...

Thanks for your comments.
