Nikon TC17 II against Nikon TC20III, a slightly different question?

I know much has been written about comparisons between the TC20 III and the TC20II/TC14II, but I've not seem much when compared to the TC17II. I bought my TC17II about 3 years ago and since then changed my cameras to the D7100 and D800 and also bought a Sigma 50-500mm OS, so the TC17II largely became redundant. For the first time yesterday I decided to test the TC17 II on my D7100 and D800 coupled to a 70-200mm f2.8 VR1.

I've posted some images below taken handheld at about 40-50ft away on the D7100 and I have to say I am delighted with the results. Now, the question is, do you think that the same lens coupled to a TC20 MkIII could accomplish as good or perhaps even better than with the TC17 please.

I don't wish to purchase the 70-200mm f2.8 VRII, but I am beginning to find my Sigma 50-500mm OS tiring handheld as I have the start of aches and pains. Age comes not alone I'm afraid. This could be a respectable and slightly lighter alternative if the results with a TC20III worked well.

Your opinions would be valued. Thanks.

Richard
