Using the 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR with TCs

Hi all,

I recently purchased Nikon's latest 70-200 to replace my Tamron G1.  I'm seeing very definite improvement in AF accuracy and consistency, and most noticeably this thing is tack-sharp at long distances at 200mm.

Given the rather excellent performance at 200mm I am wondering how far I can stretch this with a TC without significantly compromising IQ or focus performance. I realise that it wont get me the reach of the 500mm or 600mm zooms but it could be a lazy man's alternative that would fit my pocket and my shoulder-bag better.

So I'm wondering if anyone has real hands-on experience with the 70-200E and the newest Nikon TCs ?
