Difference between TC-14E and TC14E II?
I searched the discussion area and it seems the only difference between the two is cosmetic. I just want to confirm this.
I've been looking for a used TC for my 80-200 f2.8 AF-S lens. Leaning toward the 14E, but would consider a 20E at the right price. the 2x is obviously slower, but is image quality a lot worse?
Have heard that the Tamron Pro & Kenko converters work with the AF-S, but when I asked an eBay seller who was selling his Tamron Pro if it worked with his new 80-200 AF-S lens, he replied "that it hunted back and forth" (the seller replaced the Tamron Pro with the TC-14E II). Can anyone comment who has this combination?

Last time I checked there was no difference except for the finish and the II is more expensive. I am keeping my version I.
For the 80-200mm AF-S lens, nothing beats this TC. I use it with very good results. Hard to tell from this low resolution scan but the combination works very well. The only reason I purchased the 1.4TC Kenko Pro Series 300 is to attempt to retain AF function where there is no Nikon alternative, like with the 80-400mm VR. Below a sample image of the 80-200mm f/2.8D ED IF AF-S with the TC-14E.
