OK, I have all of the above, the 80-400 purchased a number of years ago, the 70-200 over the last several months. But I do not know how to think about some aspects of this comparison.

The TC-20E III will add two stops to the 70-200 bringing it to a f/5.6. But what happens to depth of field? Are they then the same, or is there a difference.

I assume that the 70-200 plus the TC-20E III will give me the benefit of the newer version of VR (VR vs VRII), but does that make sense?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Bill
