I am new to this forum and still learning my way around.

I do a lot of shooting of birds and birds in flight using the d4 plus my Nikon 500mm f4.0 vrII lens. To get more reach I add a tc 1.4EII or my tc 1.7EII to give me either 700mm or 850mm. I have to adjust the af fine tuning on the d4 to a +15 using the tc 1.4 and no need for af fine tuning with the tc 1.7. The 1.4 converter gives me more consistant accurate af than the 1.7 converter. I think maybe its the lighting on the subject that makes the 1.7 converter less consistant? Has anyone experienced the same thing?

My main question is anyone using the tc 2.0EIII with the Nikon 500 lens with what kind of results for focus accuracy and focus quickness? I always seem to need more reach for static birds especially so that I don't have to crop so much. How is the tc 2.0EIII working out for those who are using it?

I am excited to learn the rope on this forum for photographic information on equipment and images.

Thanks
Larry
