A 'good' TC for my FA* 200mm

Hello everybody.

I am waiting for my recently purchased FA* 200mm f2.8 to arrive. In the meanwhile, I am just searching for a teleconverter (1.7x or maybe 2x) which I can use in case I need more reach. Of course AF, please... any recommendations?

Thanks in advance.

I can talk for the Tamron 1.4 AF and it works great with my FA50/1.4, FA135/2.8IF and FA50/2.8 macro, with my FA*200/2.8IF works fine too but handholding becomes a matter of great care. See example below:
