That's what I figure. If the IQ diminishes even 10% or so, it still might be worth it, given that you can find these TCs for $100 and under...even combined with a new purchase of a 55-210mm lens, the total expendature for 350mm+ of stabilized optical reach is under $500! I'd accept a slight reduction in IQ for that budget, for sure. And if the light is decent, at least by my eye, it doesn't suffer even that much degredation - except for corners.
