I want to thank everyone that took the time to provide me with your feedback. I've pondered long and hard and when the stars aligned and the cash was in hand it was an easy decision. The 35-100 will be ordered tomorrow. Even though I only asked about the EC-14 it appears I will probably go for the EC-20 since the purchase of the 35-100 means there won't be a 50-200 in the bag for a long time so that little extra reach will be nice to have.
