AF-S Teleconverter TC-14E II 4.8 5 6 6
Turn your lens into a longer lens Bought an AF-S TC-14E II several years ago and use it 90% of the time with my Nikkor 200-400 f/4. The other 10% is with my Nikkor 70-200 f/2.8. Both have fast focusing and sharp images. I like using it with the 70-200 lens when I am canoeing and photographing egrets, herons, ducks, etc. When I photograph wildlife with the 200-400 and the TC-14E II I have it on a tripod or monopod because of the weight of the lens. It focuses right in on bears or birds. September 22, 2013
Great addition for a micro lens I bought this 1.4x teleconverter to add on to my Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G ED-IF AF-S VR Micro lens, so I could get that little bit closer detail without losing too much quality. Losing just one stop of light and gaining 40% more focal length, this product is well worth the expense. The image clarity is still superb. Perhaps the main drawback is that it only works with the more expensive AF-S and AF-I lenses. July 1, 2011
Wonderful extra reach I have the TC-14e I, and love the extra reach this provides especially on a 70-200, 300 etc.On a fast lens it is great and focus for me is fast too. April 14, 2011
Essential Kit I bought this gem when I got my 300/4 AF-S. Provides a wonderful 420/5.6 that focuses to 4.8 feet - almost a macro lens. I also like it with my 105 macro for magnifications greater that 1:1 and more working distance. Focus speed is adequate and I notice negligible loss of sharpness even wide open. A perfect addition to any lens that can take it. December 3, 2010
Works great with telephotos Nice performance with 200-400 and 600mm lenses when used in full sun. Focus speed not noticeably slower, image quality still very good. August 2, 2010

Ok I know I should use a 2.8 lens but that is out of my price range at this time.
I am looking to purchase this combination to shoot pictures of bears in AK. I am told that they are normally at 100-600 mm away. I do have a 70-200 F2.8 with a TC-2. But want what will take the best pictures at this distance. Any suggestions on the best lens choice? My camera bodies are D600 & D7100.

Answer: 
Well I would have to differ with Joe's suggestion. The 200 mm f/2.8 is most definitely not better optics than the NEW G 80-400 mm f/4.5-5.6 on a full frame body like a D600. And if you put a TC-20 on the 70-200, you get right back to f/5.6 again that you already have with the 80-400. The 80-400 also has better VR than the 70-200 f/2.8 , which has disappointing MTF in the corners of the full frame (wide open).

The older 80-400 D lens is nowhere near as good as the new one.

I also have the 70-200 f/4 nikkor, and although it is not as well built as the older f/2.8 lens, it has much superior VR and is better at f/4 than the older f/2.8 lens is.

I use my D-7100 in crop mode with the 2.0 TC, and the 80-400 mm wide open, and hand held, and I can get very good pictures, at effectively 1600 mm and f/11. Now it might not track a flying bird, but it auto focusses just fine on birds sitting in trees.

I do have a mono-pod, and also a pistol grip, and either one works with the 80-400.

I believe the 80-400 G is cheaper than the 70-200 f/2.8 plus the TC-20E III

But bottom line, this new TC-1.4E III will work fine with the 80-400, on either the D7100, or D600. I have the 1.4 E II, and am considering upgrading to the III version, which appears to be a more advanced design.

Any of these TCs also work with the 105 mm f/2.8 macro lens, which I also use with them.

Answer: 
I have the new Nikkor 80-400 mm f/4.5 to f/5.6. I also have BOTH the TC-14E II, and the TC-20E III and I use them on a D7100, or D 7,000 bodies, and it autofocusses just fine with EITHER of those teleconverters, on at least stationary objects, like an eagle up a tree a quarter mile away.

So it is NOT supposed to work at f/11, but in daylight IT DOES. I'm very happy with it. My D7100 gives me a 1600 mm f/11 lens with the TC 20, and it is razor sharp; same with the 1.4 x.

Answer: 
Lets answer in a different way since you didn't understand my first answer. Most consumer grade Nikon DSLRs will not autofocus when e maximum aperture is greater than 5.6. The 80-400 with a 1.4 teleconverter has a maximum aperture at the long end of f/8 (5.6x1.4). The D7100 and D600 will auto focus at f/8. You will need a tri or monopod to steady the camera. I would suggest your D7100 with the 70-200 f/2.8 and the 2.0 teleconverter. Thw teleconverter will give you 140-400mm coupled with the 1.5 DX crop you get 210-500. Switching your D7100 to the built in additional 1.3 crop mode you will now have an effective field of view of 275-650mm with a lens that has better optics than the 80-400mm and you will be shooting with a faster maximum aperture of f/5.6
Hopefully you understand my explanation.

I want to be able to use this and the other currently produced TC lenses with my AF Micro-Nikkor 200mm f/4D IF-ED, but I don't see my macro lens listed in the TC compatibility list. Is this an oversight or is my lens just not supported at all? It seems that my lens has to be supported, and that the compatibility list is just old. Someone please provide a knowledgeable answer.

Answer: 
Not all lenses can be used with a teleconverter. In general wide angle lenses or wide angle zoom lenses cannot be used. Also, lenses with relatively slow maximum apertures (slower than f2.8) cannot be used with teleconverters. You'll need to verify the specifications of the lens first.
