I'm been thinking about x2 TC III for my 400mm f2.8 IS II. It would be nice to have 800mm range for wildlife. I'm little concern about IQ loss ???
DonĀ“t be. It is still great. Take it to a store and try it out. You will be very pleased. The attached image is a 100% crop
5DIII, 1/1000s, f5.6, ISO400, handheld.

One of the best bird photographers I know uses the 400/2.8 II + 2xTC to get spectacular photos.

Thanks Alan & mackguyver for the encouragement. I'm very happy with my x1.4 TC III.

I can see the x1.4 TC III on my 70-200 f2.8 IS II and x2 TC III on my 400mm f2.8 IS II for mid-to-long wildlife shooting ::)
Body: 1DX -- 5D III
Zoom: 24-70L II -- 70-200L f2.8 IS II
Prime: 40mm -- 85L II -- 135L -- 400L f2.8 IS II

Now there's an idea -- actually I've been doing that for years - 1.4x on the 70-200 + 2x on the long lens has been my secret weapon for wildlife for as long as I've had both extenders.  Actually it's been bare lenses in the dark, then 1.4x as the sun comes up, then 2x on the long lens, 1.4x on the 70-200 as the light improves.
