Thanks, I've tried as many used outlets as I could think of. Folks at KEH said they didn't think they'd ever had one. Guess I'll need to go the E-bay route. Does it work well for you?

Yes and Yes.

The TC14 works very well with the 50-200. As others have said, there's a negligible difference in IQ with or without the TC. I also don't see any difference in AF performance when it's mounted, and there's very little added weight or length.

The second Yes is for the process of purchasing from Japan through Ebay. It's really pretty seamless, just takes a bit longer to arrive than from a US vendor. You get a new Japanese Domestic Market TC14, as that's what is being acquired by the vendor to be shipped to the US.
