You might want to consider a Tamron SP 180/2.5. Typical selling price is around $3-350. Very nice lens. And the ED glass should improve on the 180/2.8's color fringing issues. But I don't think the 1.4x would work there. You'd have to use Tamron's BBAR 1.4x.

I'm a relatively new owner of the 85-250/5. I find it useful for one
lens only trips but it is dark and hard to focus with the #1 screen and
too long to use without bracing it on a tree etc. if you don't have a
tripod. I got it to fill the gap between 135 and 300 but now think I may
get a 180 or 200 prime instead.  I'll give it some more time, it's a
nice lens but might not fit into my style. Anyone have a 180/2.8 and
1.4x to trade?
