Re: 200 F2 which TC? 1.4 and 2.0

I have theAF-S 300mm 2.8 G VR II.  Below are city shots with D850 full image at 50% with lens wide open with and without TC's . I think its important to look at original size or at least 50% on high resolution camera and lens fully open to see IQ capability and limitations. TC 1.7 looks slightly dated to me. It was said to not surpass TC 2.0 III for image detail.

300mm f/2.8 no TC at f/2.8 D850 original size: full image at 50%

300mm f/2.8 TC1.4 II fully open at f/4.0 420mm

300mm f/2.8 TC 2.0 III fully open at f/5.6 600mm
