Using a D300 and D700, I've always had a love/hate relationship with my TC17 on my 500/4 AFS. Mostly hate, though . Hehe.

Every now and then I get an outstanding image of a difficult bird (that needs a deep crop). That suggests the problem is at least partly focus.

In that context, I would be interested in opinions from those that have tried their TC17's along with F/4 long lenses on these newer bodies sporting f/8 AF on at least the center AF point. Particularly with small song birds like Warblers and Verios.

In particular Jim, since he is using the same lens and as I recall he felt about the same way about his TC17 on his 500/4 and D300.

It may be a little early for this, at least with the D7100, but please keep this in the back of your mind when your out shooting and bored and want to beat your head against a wall -
