No, the lens I'm talking about is not a zoom; it's a fixed focal length 300mm f/4 AF-S. Nikon teleconverters don't work with your zoom. Other brands may, but you'll have a fairly slow lens, f/8 at 300mm with a 1.4X, and it may not AF very well. (You lose 1 stop with a 1.4X, 2 stops with a 2X teleconverter.) The 300mm f/4 won't be the fastest either at f/5.6 max aperture with a 1.4X, but it's not too bad. You'd have a 420mm f/5.6 "equivalent" lens. They cost about $800-$900 used plus $200 or more for a used 1.4X Nikon teleconverter.

The image below was taken with the 300mm f/4 AF-S by itself (no teleconverter). It's cropped some.

Edit: Actually, it was with the Nikon 1.4X converter, hand held.
