f your lens is f/5.6, a 2x teleconverter requires manual focusing, Unless you focus correctly, you won't get a sharp image.

If so, wouldn't focus peaking perhaps minimize that drawback, at least for relatively stationary subjects?

Peaking helps with things like this but at such small apertures the contrasting lines would be much less visible, which is what peaking is based on.
