Looking at your photos, I see that the 1.4 teleconverter is working well for you.

I don't see any particular reason to use crop mode unless you won't have the opportunity to crop when editing. Since you've got 44 megapixels to work with, when you shoot in full frame mode, you can crop to suit the composition later.

For context, I use the A1 and FE 200–600 mm F5.6–6.3 G OSS, and occasionally, when the light is good, I use the 2.0 teleconverter. I tend not to use crop mode. While crop mode gives me a little more magnification in the viewfinder, it also makes it harder to locate my subject because of the narrower field of view. Also, any camera shake is more evident in crop mode. I prefer to do the cropping in when editing later.

"New" camera showed up A7RV.  Another little test, shot taken from 1.2 miles away.  A7RV, 200-600, 1.4 teleconverter.  One is original pic take at 600m, next is 200% crop run through Topaz sharpen.  In bright light, subject with lots of contrast felt the autofocus with the teleconverter was pretty good.
