How are you finding it performs?

It performs surprisingly well with the 70-200 S.  Decently sharp, background blur reasonably smooth.  Certainly a compromise, but one I will use when I don’t have a prime long lens available.  I didn’t feel this way with the F mount 70-200 E used with teleconverters, even though the E lens is just as sharp as the S lens.  I have had good luck with all three teleconverters on 300mm and 500mm primes, which leads me to believe they are well corrected.  I think the mirrorless approach of using the imaging sensor directly for focus rather than a separate system as in D cameras is making a lot of the difference.  And maybe the S teleconverters was design specifically to work well with the 70-200 S so there is a good balancing of aberrations.  Whatever the reason, I am more confident of the S combo.
