D500 - 500 PF with and without TC, 200-500 with and without TC

I shot 4 images in my back yard today of the rear cover of a book about 20' away. It's a sunny day here although my back yard is fairly shaded. The light might have changed a little in between shots but not that I really noticed.  All shots from a tripod, same camera settings for each. I uploaded the images to LightRoom and cropped the images to all (roughly) the same size. Not a totally scientific test but here goes...

The 500 PF, no TC14E-III

The 500 PF, with the TC14E-III

Now the Nikkor 200-500 without the TC

And the zoom with the TC

I then zoomed in on just two words of the text (in the same order as above)...

I guess the results are what I should have expected.

Any thoughts?
