Asessment of FZ40 IQ to FZ200 IQ at max zoom with 1.7x extender?

Anybody out there who used the FZ28 or FZ40 with the Panny 1.7x tele extender for birds? I have used both (mounted on a tripod). Does the FZ200 give anything better?

Looking to upgrade (but) not wanting to upgrade and then realize that the IQ was no better. 200 gives constant 2.8, (nice) 28 and 40 give 2.8 to 5.2 (not bad). 200 has max shutter at 4000 (good for birds) 28 and 40, not as good. limited to 2000?

This setup is strictly for the "birds".
