Asking where I know there are lots of skills and knowledge.
I was thinking about getting a 2x (ii or iii) extender to use with my 5D ii and or 7D and 70-200 2.8 IS.
Is that a bad idea? Will I lose to much quality compared to a 100-400?

In my experience the quality from the 100-400 mm IS L MK II is better than the 70-200 mm IS L and using the 2x converter, another consideration is that you loose 2 stops of light with the converter.
I had a 70-200 and the 1.4 x and a 2 x converter set up they where ok but the quality didn't hold a candle to the 100-400 mm IS L MK II.

My son shoots two beauty pageants a year and part of it is video. He uses a Canon C100 for that part which uses Canon EF lenses. I just lent him my 70-200 f2.8 II and my 1.4 Extender which he'll use on his video camera. I saw the videos from the last pageant and it is really high quality stuff. He has the Mk II version of the extender and there is a profound difference in quality.
However, I've never fooled around with the 2X version.
