, we want to gather as much practical information as possible about what works and what doesn't, to help in preparing version 2 of the chart.

So, please make a post in this thread if you have one or more TC's, and give as much detail about how it works with different lenses (and cameras).

It would help if you made one post for each TC that you try, and put the brand and model of TC in the title. Then tell us:

The brand and full model name each lens you have tried it with;
The type (and firmware level, if a DSLR) of each Nikon camera you have tried it with.

For each combination you try, it would be good to know:

How many contacts (front and rear) the TC has;
Whether the TC has the "screwdriver" AF connection;
Whether it physically mounts to the lens (BE CAREFUL in case the lens elements collide);
Whether AF works, tries to work and fails, or does not even try to work;
Whether VR works (with a VR lens);
Whether the EXIF data (and camera display) shows the actual focal length and max. aperture of the lens, or the "adjusted" figures.

There is no need to comment on image quality and so forth.

Thanks very much in advance, everyone - over to you...
