A Question about the Nikon 200-500mm f/5.6 Tripod Collar/Foot

Can anyone demonstrate a marked gain (10% or greater) in sharpness by using a third party ( Kirkphoto, RRS, Haoge, etc.) over the original Nikon collar /foot for this lens?
I do understand that replacement/feet made by these companies have a built in ARCA-Swiss quick-release plate, and while that would save some weight and bulk over my adding an A-S QR plate, it's also not worth the $200+ USD difference to me.
