The lens: 80-200mm f/2.8 AF-S

The teleconverter:

1. TC-14E

KR Review - The TC-14E doesn't give much additional magnification, and doesn't lose any performance, either.

EXIF and exposure data read correctly with the TC-14E, meaning the camera and EXIF read in the effective f/stop, which now starts at f/4, and the effective focal length, which goes from 112~280mm.

Performance seems the same, on a D3, as the lens alone, except now it's a 112~280mm f/4. If you're on a tripod and looking at images at 100%, it's just a teensy bit softer wide open (f/4) and is wonderful by f/5.6, one-stop down.




2. TC-17E

KR Review: The TC-17E also gives excellent results.

EXIF and exposure data read correctly with the TC-17E, meaning the camera and EXIF read in the effective f/stop, which now starts at f/4.8, and the effective focal length, which goes from 135~340mm.

It's a little bit softer wide open at f/4.8, so if you're counting every pixel, better at f/5.6 and great by f/8.




3. TC-20E

KR Review - Avoid the TC-20E if you're counting every pixel; it loses some sharpness at the largest apertures. It now is only f/5.6 wide open.

EXIF and exposure data read correctly with the TC-20E, meaning the camera and EXIF read in the effective f/stop, which now starts at f/5.6, and the effective focal length, which goes from 160-400mm.




My conclusion: Of cos, there's the latest TC-20Elll that came out last year which according to Nikon, works well wih 80-200AF-S. However, it is also said any 2X teleconverters rob too much sharpness out of the photo while the 1.4X and 1.7X, though gives better result, offer negligible extra magnifications. So end of the day...the best option is to save up and get the KING below. Then again, i need a bank account fit for a KING in order to buy that...argghhhh!!

BIG MISTAKE!! My is AF-D...not AF-S!!!! Rolling Eyes

Anyway, seems like my only choice is with the Kenko TC. Here's one with Nikon D300, Nikkor 80-200mm f/2.8D ED AF, 1/400s f/2.8 at 200.0mm (true 400mm) iso320
