Excerpt: The 2x teleconverter works very well on specific Nikon lenses. Nikon has a list of compatible lenses. On my Nikkor 400mm f/2.8 and 70-200mm f/2.8 lenses I have use of auto focus. There is a 2 stop loss of light, which is not a problem for these lenses.
Excerpt: This lens is visually much better than it's predecessors. I have several and this works much better with noticeably less degradation of the photos than before.
