I own option 1 and use a telephoto multiplier if I need to go out to 400. The image quality and low light capability of the Canon 24-70 and 70-200 are remarkable.

I own option 1, too. But, lately, I tested option 2 and feel unsure about my current option. No offense, the truth is that the multiplier seems to drop the quality of picture, especially light and sharpness. My recent trip to New Zealand showed the zoom limit of 70-200 F2.8L IS.
