Tele lens for Z6 and teleconverter

Hi guys,

Last year I sold off my D500 and 200-500 lens as i found i just wasn't using it as it was big and heavy to carry around unless it was a dedicated birding trip.

I now own a Z6 and am looking for some affordable tele options. As good as the 200-500 is, i just know i'd be leaving it behind due to size and weight. So i've been looking at choices and think (within budget) a 300mm F4 PF might be the one, but would appreciate anyones take on this combo that's used it, especially in perhaps the 10mp DX mode. Does it give good results.

With the lens being so small and light, i can this this going with me everywhere, but would also need to extend its reach on occasions so i guess a teleconverter is a must. So, two further questions. Is the TC14E the one to go for or does the TC-17E yield very good results. If the former, does it have to be the newer mark III version or will the older MK II version suffice ?

Many thanks in advanced.
