Excerpt: After not finding the Illudium Space Modulator I was looking for, I ordered this 1.7X TC.
The first thing I did was lens tests with my Nikon 300mm f/4D; Tripod, lens test charts I found online, and MT-636 wireless release on mirror-up mode were used.
I was frankly amazed at the results.
Summary: Have used this teleconverter extensively with my Nikon 300mm f/2.8 and my Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8, with no issues in very rugged conditions. It is my go to teleconverter for my 300mm lens when my 600mm is not with me. Never been disappointed.
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.
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!
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.
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.
Summary: 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
