Canon FD 300/4 : LUSENET : Ask Bob : One Thread

I own an older manual Canon A-1 and am interested in getting a larger used lens (currently have a 70-200). I frequently see Sigma, Tokina, and Vivtar 400/5.6 lens for sale and also Canon FD 300/4. My question is woiuld I be better off with a 400/5.6 or the Canon 300/4 with a teleconverter. Iknow there are tradeoffs (good quality prime lens with a loss of some sharpness due to teleconverter vs. well I really haven't heard anything very good or very bad about the Tokina/Sigma/Vivitars. Any help is appreciated.
