SRA said:I carried a 28-70 all over Europe this summer along with TC-20EII. They gave me great flexability with my baggage limitations. The only drawback I had was that you cannot move below 50mm with the TC attached.
Otherwise I highly recommend the combination
What happens if you zoom below 50mm?
How did you control the urge to zoom out when the opportunity arose? I'd think it would be like playing golf, and trying to stop right in the middle of your backswing.
What kind of results did the 28-70 deliver with the TC-20EII dragging it down?

I believe that's the point that Bjorn was making. It stops because the rear element of the 28-70 is banging into the front element of the TC-20EII. I don't think the increase in reach is worth risking a $1500 lens, particularly when the result yields marginal images.
