All the specs I've seen show a built in 1.2 converter, similar to the Canikon lenses of this type, with the ability to use an external converter as well.

So its a 150-400 with inbuilt 1.2 giving 180-480 out of the box and the ability to add a 1.4 or a 2.0 converter if you're so inclined!

Looks pricey though - and Hooooooge!
