Hello all, would anyone happen to have any real world comparisons between the 500 Reflex and a 2x TC 200mm?

If I'm correct the 2x would only be a F5.6 vs the 500's F8 and the AF would be better too? How is the size between the two on an A99?

Surprisingly image quality is not the most important aspect of my project, just faster speed and size.

I'm very accustomed the the Reflex's drawbacks but would like some better AF performance.

I would go with the 500mm f8.
