Newbie here with a D5000 and 70-200 f2.8 VR lens. I was out shooting birds the other day (with the camera) and I was capturing in RAW format for the first time. I started off with the 70-200 by itself and then added a 1.7 teleconverter. After down loading the pics I noticed the colors looked fair to good from the lens only pics. Most of the pics with the teleconverter had horrible colors. For example, whites were blown out and the green grass looked lime green.
It was a sunny day and I was taking pictures of ducks on a lake. The water color was way off also. The camera was set to P mode with ISO 400, auto WB, ADL auto, center weighted metering and dynamic focus mode.
Is this somewhat normal for RAW capture or is this a problem with using a teleconverter? How can I correct this?
