Here's the offical word from Chuck Westfall. Your 35-350 does take a TC.

To quote:

Canon EF Extenders are compatible with all single focal length L-series lenses from 135mm to 1200mm plus the EF 70-200mm zooms, the EF 35-350mm zoom, and the EF 100-400mm zoom.

>>they have a notch in the mount preventing their use with other lenses<<

Not so. However, the front elements of Canon EF Extenders protrude slightly beyond the front of the lens mount, so the lens to which they will be attached must have a recessed rear element to accommodate the protrusion. In some cases, it's possible to use a short extension tube between the extender and the lens to create the necessary space, but this method is not guaranteed and it impairs the ability of the primary lens to focus at infinity.

Chuck is great, isn't he? He's also made some posts which correct the manuals about which IS lenses can work on a tripod with IS on. I think I saved that one somewhere.

Sigma makes lenses which fit Nikon, Canon and Sigma mounts. I wouldn't go with the sigma mount personally. Not enough support from 3rd parties.
