Nikon 5400 + Tele Extender - worth it?

I have a 5400 (great camera on the whole - built like an F3)

OK, I can understand purchasing this for the 5700.. as you get up to
400m (?) however it only extends the 5400 by 50mm (to around 170mm?)
or so - is it worth buying?

I guess this was intended purely for 5700 owners and Nikon released
the tele-adaptor ring for thre 5400 to make a quick buck

It gives the same multiplication in either camera, 1.5x

5400: 1.5 x 116 = 174 mm
5700: 1.5 x 280 = 420 mm

The question is do you need a the additional 50% in focal length? It's a
good piece of glass.
