I purchased the TC-17EII to use with my 70-200 mm nikon lens and D800 camera and the autofocus always worked great. I was lucky to obtain the new 80-400 mm lens and tried the TC with it. There was no problem with autofocus between 80 and 200 mm but after that there was only continuous seeking with no focus point ever achieved even in bright light. I am a new photographer (less than a year) but love the equipment and wonder if I am doing something wrong or if the TC or the lens is not compatible or is defective? Has anyone else had this problem? Thanks so much for your input!
