I have been very pleased with the images from my R5 with the EF100-400 Mk2 and 1.4x Mk3.  When using the 2x at close range, I’ve also even happy.  But when using the 2x at longer distances handheld, even when we’ll braced, I’ve not been happy with the IQ.  I just got the Wimberley mono gimbal for my monopod, and I'm going to see if that helps with the 2x.  If not, then my next step is using it with the tripod, but I’m not often in situations where carrying a tripod around is practical.
