Re: Wondering about tc with 70-200 f4 on d500

First of all, the 70-200 f4 is one of my favorite lenses.  The issue that always comes up with these questions is are you better off just cropping and I've seen it answered both ways.  You are going to pay some penalty using an optical solution - a stop of light at best, and maybe some IQ (although not much with the TC1.4 - and the 70-200 is pretty darn sharp to start with) as opposed to some  resolution with cropping.

Is losing a stop of light worth it for gaining 80mm or reach?
