A mixed bag possibly?

 

I bought this as it the middle road one in the 3 available, the x2 one I think will degrade quality to much but I will try at some stage, the 1.4 is to expensive so thus this is the one I thought I would have a go with? I have been using it with a 300...

Nikon TC-17E 11AF-S Teleconverter

 

Teleconverters are often given a bad press, but there's a world of difference between tests undertaken in a lab and using one in the real world. I use this teleconverter with a Nikon 70-200 f2.8 lens and it works perfectly. Yes, shoot wide open and the...

Not too happy

 

I used this on a Nikon D600 with an f4 200mm lens and found the images too soft. I got just as good if not better results by cropping and interpolating in Photoshop

Yet to see its best

 

Yet to find the sweet spot of the teleconverter when used with my Nikon 70-200mm 2.8. Tried many combinations of vr and not and aperture but not yet found it to be razor sharp

I would highly recommend this product

 

I use this with my 300mm prime to give me just that bit more, especially with wildlife - brilliant. Although the 300 is heavy and you don\'t notice the addition of the teleconvertor. Probably the best compromise of the Nikon Teleconvertors available...

The Missing Lens

 

like a lot of photographers, I'm looking to cut down on carrying everything including the kitchen sink. this lens takes up very little space but it packs a punch. Its the first thing into the holdall. Should have bought it years ago.

Product Specifications

Nikon TC-17E II is the first teleconverter to offer 1.7x performance. Designed exclusively for use with AF-S and AF-I lenses, the AF-S Teleconverter TC-17E II completes the Nikon lineup of 1.4x, 1.7x, and 2.0x compact teleconverters. With dimensions of just 66 x 31.5mm (2.6 x 1.2 in.) and a weight of only 250g (8.8oz.)(approx.), the AF-S Teleconverter TC-17E II allows focal length to be extended by a factor of 1.7 times while retaining a sense of overall comfort in the hand. Many such teleconverters can also have a detrimental effect on the speed of the lens, however the AF-S Teleconverter TC-17E II makes available f-stops only 1.5 stops slower. The AF-S Teleconverter TC-17E II also has the ability to communicate with the signals from most lenses. Furthermore, it supports the convenient Nikon Vibration Reduction (VR) function, has a design that is consistent with the current TC-14EII and TC-20EII, and Eco-Glass is also used. This product is designed for AF-I & AF-S Lenses only.
