Excerpt: This teleconverter is a perfect match for my 70-200 f2.8 zoom. To my surprise, it also works with the 200-500 f5.6 on my D800 under bright daylight. The auto focus does slow down quite a bit with the 200-500 but still works.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Recently bought a used previous generation of Nikon's 70-200 VR and the combo with the 1.7x was NOT as good as my 20 year old 300 f4 ED prime. Seller's remorse set in! I just traded for the new 7-200 VRII and they work extremely well together!
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: You really need a fast lens for this teleconverter to be worthwhile. Would not fit on my Tamron 300/2.8 AF, so I tried with Nikkor 300 f/4, 80-400 VRII, and new 200-500 f5.6 and needed really high ISO's. Probably would of been good with the 70-200 2.8 VRII.
Pros: Consistent Output, Lightweight, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I decided to get the TC-17E II over the TC-20 because of the less f-stop loss. I am using this with my 70-200 f/2.8 VRII lens and it works great. Very quick on the focus. The D810 handles this combination extremely well.
Excerpt: I use this Teleconverter it mainly on my AF-S Nikkor 300mm f/4 PF ED VR and no noticeable drop of image quality. VR working very well. AF works fine, maybe a tiny bit slower. Compact light and fast. SJ
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
Excerpt: I've got 1.4, 2.0 and this 1.7 teleconverters and this one is a perfect intermediate size for extending my telephoto lenses. I use this mostly for my 300mm f/4E PF ED-IF. It provides a focal length extension from 300mm to 510mm and adds very little aperture impact.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Was leery after reading reviews but with B&H's excellent return policy decided to give it try. Never was happy with converters in film days but my option has changed with this product. Using for backyard birds a and some sports with a f4 300 on a D600. Metering and focus work very well.
Excerpt: I bought it with the 300mm f2.8 lens. A perfect match. Due to the crop factor of my D300, the 300mm with the 1.7X converter become a 756mm f4.8. Nikon rounds it to a nice sounding 750mm. Works for me. I find it to be just right ...
Excerpt: I have the TC 1.4 ii and iii as well as the TC 1.7ii and TC 2.0iii I use the TC 1.7 ii with my Nikon D810 and 300mm f2.8 vrii. I regard the D810 as the best multipurpose camera ever made by Nikon as well as the 300 f2.8.
