Nikon 1 or Teleconverter?

This maybe sounds like a strange question, but why not use a Nikon 1 instead of a Teleconverter?

Since the CX format gives a 2x crop, it is essentially like having a TC20E on it. Or is it not?

I can get a Nikon 1 V1 with a 10/2.8 for a little over 300 euros. That is less than a brand new TC20E from Nikon.

I actually got offered a lot of money for my Nikkor 180/2.8 and I had to sell it today. I LOVE the lens but this was a deal I just could not skip. For the money I got I can almost buy a brand new AF-D 180/2.8 (mine is the older AF).

So now I am almost certain I will buy a used AFS 80-200/2.8 for the same amount of money I sold the 180/2.8 which works great with any Nikon Teleconverter (the 180/2.8 did not).

What do you guys think?
