Stacking..is it possible to stack two (2) 1.4x Teleconverters on the Oly Digitals? Would you actually lose 2 stops? I've seen it done on Canons, but i am not really experienced in this department. I am interested in getting my 50-200mm able to reach a bit further without spending a grip of cash on a 300mm...one of my other thoughts is to buy an OM converter and place the OM 500mm f8 mirror on my E500...but i haven't been able to find a whole lot of examples of this lens' abilities...any help is truly appreciated..

No, you can't do that since Every zuikoes and EC is chipped and can communicate with the body. Stacking 2 TC or TC + EX will be refused by the body and lense. This is firmware matter.
