so it does not seem plausible to me that the R5+1.4x would have any benefit over the R7 (without the TC), regardless of main lens quality. The R5+1.4x will put about 7% (using available rounded numbers) more pixels-on-subject, but that is kind of small compared to other variables.

The benefit for me is huge. I got a wider field of view (eaiser to find my subject) of 1.4x instead 1.6x while enjoying slightly higher resolution (if cropped it slightly to 1.6x)  and the sensor being 2.56x bigger in area is collecting more light even the light intensity dropped 2x

Even if the subject was within the 1.6x cropped area, the extra pixels at 1.4x may help in image composition in post production
