Which 1.4x on 70-200mm f4 L? Need advice - Photography

I just purchased a 70-200mm f4 L Zoom lens. Finally a lens I like as well as my old Nikon 300mm f4! I am using it on a digital so it's like it's a 320mm. I have owned a lot of Canon tele zooms, the 100-300 USM, 100-300 L, 75-300 IS, the very nice 100-400 IS which was great but too big and my previous favorite, the old 70-210 f4 EF AFD.

    Default Which 1.4x on 70-200mm f4 L? Need advice

    I just purchased a 70-200mm f4 L Zoom lens.
    Finally a lens I like as well as my old Nikon 300mm f4! I am using it
    on a digital so it's like it's a 320mm.
    I have owned a lot of Canon tele zooms, the 100-300 USM, 100-300 L,
    75-300 IS, the very nice 100-400 IS which was great but too big and my
    previous favorite, the old 70-210 f4 EF AFD.
    Anyway, I didn't intend to post a review, sorry.
    My question is about adding a 1.4x teleconverter.
    I once owned a Sigma and didn't much care for it, but that was years
    ago.
    I have read good things about the Kenko Pro, but wanted some first
    hand information, if possible.
    What do you use with your 70-200 L and what kind of results do you
    get?
    Also, does the Canon EF 1.4x II work on this lens and is it worth the
    difference in price?
    TIA

    With the Canon 1.4x there is practically no image degradation.
    >Also, does the Canon EF 1.4x II work on this lens
    Yes, the Canon 70-200 f/4 L has the recessed rear lens element, so all the
    Canon tele-converters fit.
    > and is it worth the difference in price?
    You have to decide that one for yourself :)
