I am interested in efficiently getting to about 600mm for surfing and boogie boarding photos. I currently use an older Nikon 300mm f4 AF (not AFS) with a Kenko Pro 300 1.4x which gets me to 420mm f5.6 with AF on my D200. I use a monopod. I want to stay away from the big guns (500 and 600 primes because of cost and bulk). I believe I will lose AF if I use a stronger tc on my current 300mm f4. A couple of options include Sigma (Bigma) 50-500 with or without a tc or a Nikon 300mm AFS f2.8 with a tc-20e converter. I am leaning toward the latter, however, I believe only the 300mm AFS f2.8 II will work with the tc-20e and the 300mm VR will not. Before pulling out the AMEX, does anyone have first hand experience with this combo and can someone verify only the II version will work with tc-20e. Your thoughts are most appreciated.
