I borrowed a 300mm 4.0 from a friend and tried pairing with my 1.7 TCE. I am trying to get sharper more detailed images and wanted advice.

All images handheld. I shot jpeg with +6 to +8 sharpening. Shutter mostly above 1500. I shot wide open either @ 4.0 without TCE or 6.7 with TCE.

Images are cropped possibly accounting for lack of detail.
The TCE maybe hurting image quality.

Do you think focus is dead on or a little off?

Should I try with monopod? Should I stop down aperture? Not use TCE?
Do I need to shoot RAW and post process after?
