Re: TC-20III edges out the TC-17II in IQ.

I have TC-14II, TC-17II and TC-20III (recently upgraded from the II model). I use them with my 400mm f/2.8 and 70-200mm VRII.

I find that the TC-20III actually is equal, if not better IQ when looking at 100% crops. So much so that I generally use the TC-20III, as it gives me maximum magnification.

I have all three as well.

I find on the 70-200 I use the TC-20III all the time as it seems to have the same IQ as the TC17 and I find I often want more reach.
On the 200/2 I only use the TC-14II but even then only occasionally.

The awkward 3rd child the TC-17II is collecting dust. This post made me realize I should just try and sell it. OP are you in the Bay area I could meet you it's in mint condition (hardly used)!
