I presently use a Nikon 500mm f4.0 vr lens on my d4 for my bird photography. I have a tc 1.4EII converter and a tc 1.7EII converter that I use with the Nikon 500 lens. I have had excellant results in image sharpness and auto focus using the tc 1.4, and a little lesser image quality and auto focus accuracy and speed using the tc 1.7. It seems the tc 1.7EII needs fairly good light for accurate auto focus on the d4, more miss focuses than I like depending on the light.

I have a chance to buy the tc 2.0EIII converter so here is my question. Is the tc 2.0EIII better than the tc 1.7EII concerning image quality and auto focus accuracy. I am assuming speed between the tc 2.0 and tc 1.7 is about the same and not ideal for birds in flight or anything moving very fast?

Thanks for all your input

Larry
