"Kenko TC's (Price reduced)" Tue 12-Jul-11 12:55 PM by mklass
Kenko Pro 300 DG Teleconverters. These work great with most Nikon mount AF lenses and provide distance, metering and AF communication with the body (AF operation is subject to the usual effective aperture restrictions). All are in like new condition and come with both caps and the box. I'll also include a pouch for each.
1.4X 2.0X 3.0X (unless you are using a real fast lens, this one is almost strictly manual focus)
$150 each or $425 for the set of 3. Price includes Paypal fees and UPS ground or USPS Priority mail shipping to 50 states. Will ship to Canada for extra charge. If you are near Tacoma, WA, we can arrange a discount for pick-up.
Well, they will all work, but you will likely be manually focusing with all but the 1.4X is very bright light. The effective aperture will cause your AF some difficulty. Remember, you are losing 1-3 stops on a lens that is already f/5-6.3. Nikon AF will start to have problems over f/5.6.
A second thing to consider is that the 150-500 is a big lens (length and weight). Properly held and mounting the lens on a tripod will work on a light, DX body. But hanging a heavy camera off the end of the TC will the lens on a tri-pod can cause some stress and erratic focusing/metering with these TC's. I've noted that with my D3s, but had no trouble with a D300s.
I've used all of these TC's with the 70-200 Nikkor with no problem.
