Which teleconverter will work with Canon EF 85 f/1.8?

I am considering the Kenko Teleplus Pro300 DG 1.4x - but I don´t know if AF on the Canon EF 85 f1.8 will work with this teleconverter om my 20D.

If the answer is NO - which one will then do?

I know that the cheapo Tamron 1.4 will do - but I don´t want to buy the cheapest and poorest TC just to make my lens work with one. It´s in my opinion also a matter of IQ.

Who can help me?

I was thinking just the same... until I read this:

Thanks a lot for the link, kabl.

I think I´ll go for the Canon EXtender, which will be perfect for Canon 200L f2.8 II, as I can see, this Canon Extender 1.4 is pretty close to real lens performance - and because of poor results with other TCs I don´t want to use any TC on the 85 f1.8.
