Advice on 1.4x or 2x extender for R5 + 100-500 RF

Hi all, I have been reading up on the pros and cons of using an extender with the 100-500 RF lens.  It is unfortunate that one would lose the lower end of the zoom range with the extender in place.  But I think I'm going to buy an extender to get that extra reach, versus not using one and then cropping + upsampling.

Question is: 1.4x or 2x?  Yes I would lose two stops of light with the 2x versus one stop with the 1.4x.  And I would effectively have a 600-1000 range.

Does anyone have a preference of one extender over the other for my set-up?  On a side note, I don't have any prime or other zoom lenses that I would be using the extender with.
