There may be some sort of coupling issue with the 500mm AFS II with AF-S Teleconverter TC-14E-II. The camera- just got it- doesn't want to focus. It is not even hunting. But the camera & 500mm with no 1.4X does fine. Took it to my knowledgable camera store (Hunts in Manchester, NH) & we tried a new 1.4X. Same problem. So we tried a different D600 body. Same problem. Then we tried the 1.4X on a D800 & it worked fine. Even tried it on a D3200. Fine. It also works fine on my D3s. Seems that there might be a firmware issue with the D600 & this particular lens with the 1.4X? Has anyone who owns a 500mm AFSII (non-VR) & 1.4X encountered this problem or know of it? Manual says the TC-14E-II & lens are compatible. HELP!
