2X TC vs 200-500 I own 70-200 VR III


I'm having 70-200 2.8 FL ED VR or VRIII lens which I use with D750.

Now I need extra reach for still/video of animals and birds in forest.

Should I go for 2X TCIII or 200-500 5.6

TC pros over 200-500

much smaller, lighter, I will get little wider 140mm vs 200mm, also less expensive

TC cons - less telephoto 400 vs 500, some quality and focusing issue though as per reviews though not sure with new 70-200 2.8 lens and TC III

My question is to real life user of both of these.

TC III (less weight/handy/less price, extra wide)


200-500 IQ (sharpness, colours, contrast), focusing ??

Does IQ and focusing of 200-500 is worth to take it over pros of TC ?
