FZ70...SX50...or FZ200 with teleconverter ?

Hi all, I'm contemplating buying one of these.

I want to fulfill my quest for even longer telephoto reach.

Tempted to buy a FZ70 for around $220.

Would mainly use it for the zoo, or birds.

Don't think I would use the wide angle much at all.

Would love the 1200mm reach , though

I could add a teleconverter to my FZ200...but my past experience with them, are not good, with lower IQ as the result. Recently tried a Oly 2x teleconverter that screws onto the FZ200 lens (risky, I know), but images are too soft

So...any thoughts on this?

SX50 seems really good at the long end, and might be an option.

Thanks in advance.
