It does the job

 

I use this mostly with a nikon 300m f2.8 lens and sometimes a 400mm f2.8. This is the second one of these I have purchased, the original one started to develop an intermittent fault that sometimes stopped the shutter from firing and caused the lens to...

Nikon TC-17E ll AF-S Teleconverter

 

This converter is mainly used with my Nikon AF-S 70-200mm f2.8 ED.G.VRII on a Nikon D3S for low light bird photography, or for small motor sport events fitted to a D1X, both these cameras match well with this Teleconverter. Size of the converter is...

Doeas what it says on the tin

 

This is as good as matched multipliers come. Obviously making the most of this glass depends on it being linked to a high quality lens such as the Nikon 70-200 f1.9 pro lens. The coupling gives an impressively extended focal length with little or no...

So much difference

 

Using with Nikon 300mm F2.8 I now have a 500mm if I choose. Almost hand holdable, sharp birds at 1/500sec and faster.With this lens no significant loss of autofocus speed or vr function noticed.

Secret weapon

 

This is my secret weapon whilst on wedding shoots. The quality is superb, with little if any loss of image quality when used with my Nikon 70-200 2.8 on the D3s. Attaching the TC-17EII on to the 70-200 2.8 give me a 340mm lens, which comes in very...

Consumer review by:

get that bit closer

 

I\'ve used the Nikon 2x converter for a while now, mainly on a Nikon 300mm F2.8. The results have been OK but I have to say the results with this converter are better. Sure, you loose a bit of magnification compared to the 2x but this is made up for by...

Ease of Use

always a bit of a compromise to a larger prime len

Nikon TC17E-II teleconverter

 

The Nikon TC17E II is Nikon latest incarnation of its 1.7X teleconverter.

Great compromise between the TC20's long reach and the TC14E's low light loss

Sharp results REQUIRE excellent technique. Focus hunting on F/4 lenses

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.
