On a separate note, could anyone possible try out using the Z 1.4TC with some extension tubes, and a non-compatible Z lens like the 24-70 f4, for example? This new lens unfortunately is not compatible with TCs, but I was wondering if you could have a TC attached to the camera body, then some extension tubes and finally mount a lens onto this - I'm hoping this would allow sufficient space for the TC. Maybe extension tubes without electronic contacts? Would be very interesting if someone could try that out. Thanks.

I did try something similar with my set of Meike tubes (the MK-Z-AF1) after I picked up the Z TC 1.4x.  Unfortunately, it doesn't work.

These particular tubes have a rectangular baffle inside the rear mount area, so the projecting front element of the TC clashes with the baffle and prevents the tube being mounted.
