Small differences in resolution may be well down the list of priorities when making choices. As BeenThere notes, price could be a major consideration, whereas versatility of a zoom vs prime, minimum focal distance, size etc are of overriding importance to others. I made a mistake when writing adding the 1.4xTC to the 100-500 outresolves the 800 f/11. I've modified it to:In your previous post you mention you expect the 100-500 ...-f7.1 + 1.4TC to outresolve the 800mm f11 on the R5. It would be nice to see an actual side-by-side comparison to make sure of this (both for resolution and for contrast). It'd also be good to have confirmation to everyone considering what to buy with the R5 (whether to buy the 800 f11 or just add the RF 1.4TC to the 100-500).
- The 800mm f/11 outresolves the 100-500mm f/7.1 on the R5 and R6, but adding the 1.4xTC to the zoom brings it closer to the 800mm prime.
