Can you get decent images using a 60D + 100-400 + 1.4 TC? Some swear you can, some swear you can't. I don't want to buy a TC if it's a total waste. Any feedback from people who've tried it?

I'm posting this question after reading this article in which the author says it's a really, really, really bad idea: Arguments for not using 100-400 with TC

That article IMO is not worth the bytes it wasted.

Your problem with the 60D is that you will not get AF unless you use a non-reporting TC or tape pins on the TC to make it non-reporting. Even then I've heard it can be flaky on some cameras; not sure about 60D. IQ however, is very good and there is a recent thread on this with examples posted. On my 1D IV I use 100-400L + 1.4x TC quite often and am veyr happen with IQ and even AF performance is quite good in normal light.
