The topic gets discussed endlessly. Certainly to the extent that sensors are packed tighter and lenses do not quite keep up, the usefulness of the TC becomes less and less. Along the same lines, I put a 40-year-old 50mm lens on a Q and came up with a super-sharp result. That's about the same as putting a 3x TC on a K3. Bottom line, if you have a very sharp lens (at least in the central area), the TC can be useful.
