has anybody experience how much the 2x Nikon teleconverter will reduce the sharpness of the Nikon 70-200 f4?

As I only rarely need 400+mm, I am a little bit reluctant to invest in the Nikon 80-400mm or Tamron 150-600mm.

Also as this just additional weight to be carried around on hikes etc. and probably it's only used once in a while.

Kind regards Borg

I have the 70-200/f4 and the 2xTC.  After some brief experiments, I decided not to use the 2X with that lens - the degradation was clear-to-the-eyes and just too much for my taste.

My tests were done on my D800.

Hope that helps a little at least.
