Sooooo....I put a Tamron 16-300mm aps-c lens on my D850 using 1.2x mode

I can't share the picture since it was a family portrait for a family friend. It gave a 19-360mm field of view equivalent. Aps-c is supposed to be 1.5X, not 1.3X setting on my camera. SO this showed a bit more real estate that it wasn't designed to show. It mostly worked but two things stick out with trying a stunt like this. #1 vignetting is noticeable but workable on anything 50mm setting and higher. Bellow that, it is quite noticeable. #2 The corners of the newfound image real estate show very noticeable pincushion distortion. Correctable in certain photoshop versions. I used a 6% correction and everything was fine, especially the marble columns.

Overall, I would say it went well. The setup allowed me to grab candids in between posed images all in one lens. I'll eventually grab a lens such as the Tamron 35-150mm for proper full frame images.

For those wondering, this is what the types of distortion can do to your images. Superzooms typically show various levels of distortion to reach the expansive focal lengths they provide. Distortion isn't noticeable on all images but become more prominent in photos that may feature straight lens.

I'd like something 28mm at the wide end, topping out around 135-150. That would be an ideal events lens. Although the aperture at the upper end may be an issue.
