The real baseline test of a teleconverter is "Is it better than cropping?", and on the 300 f4 it is much better than cropping. See photozone's test here: http://www.photozone.de/nikon--nikkor-aps-c-lens-tests/228-nikkor-af-s-300mm-f4d-if-ed-review--test-report . But, as you correctly note, there is also an impact on autofocus and available shutter speeds with a TC.

Good point, Jim.  I don't have direct experience with that pairing; not enough funds in the bank account for the best Nikon glass.
