AF-S Teleconverter TC-20E III 4.2 5 10 10
BUY IT ! Purchased a refurbished sample from my favorite store in NYC. Excellent teleconverter for 70-200 f/2.8 G lens, at least when paired with my D3s. Extremely sharp and fast focusing. I have even gotten good results in the 1.2x format (480 mm) and DX setting (600 mm) hand held but typically use with a monopod or tripod for best results. March 28, 2013
When length and close focusing matter most I use this occasionally on my 300/4 AF-S and 105/2.8 VR macro (on D7000). While AF can work in good light, I usually manually focus. The fact that the minimum focus distance doesn't change results in 2X life size with the 105 and 0.5X with the 300 (at 600mm it's my longest "macro" lens). I have used both combinations wide open, and had acceptable results, but a stop or two helps with IQ. If you need reach and can't afford the 600/4, this gets you there. If you want more than 1:1 with your 105VR (and a 210mm focal length) this gets you there. If you want a 600mm 0.5X macro lens, this gets you there. If those are places you want to go, get the TC. December 17, 2011
Sharp and clear! I love this teleconverter! I use it with my 70-200 2.8 VRII lens which gives me the equivalent of a 600mm lens on my Nikon D300s. Tack sharp! Buy it. You won't be disappointed. I shot the hawk with this set-up. Look at the detail. Unbelievable! September 3, 2011
Excellent teleconverter! This is an incredible addition to the lens arsenal. The bokeh, for me, is just plain smashing than can range from creamy to abstract. A good solid tripod and shutter release cable are my only recommendations to produce superb images! Well worth the money!! May 12, 2011
Worth the wait I purchased this teleconverter for use with a Nikkor 70-200 VR II but had to wait over 6-months for it. That's how much it is in demand. It was worth the long wait. I have it mounted on a D700 and - with appropriately high ISO settings and that great VR - I can actually hand-hold and get a tack sharp shot. I didn't think I could shoot this rig without a tripod, but it performs admirably well hand supported. April 14, 2011

The Teleconverter Compatibility chart seems to say it will, but the listing of the 80-200mm lens has two errors. The product number is listed as 1933 instead of 1986. 1933 is not listed for any of the Nikkor lens. Also, the 80-200mm lens is listed as AF-S on the chart, instead of AF.

It works with my 70-200 f2.8 so why not with the 600mm? Also, will I be able to use the camera's auto focus sensor to manualy focus this lens or will it also not work?

Answer: 
D700 will not autofocus on lenses with a maximum aperture of greater than 5.6. The f4 becomes f 8 with the TC attached. Your 70-200 f2.8 becomes f5.6 with TC attached, that's why it will autofocus. You can use the 1.4 TC on the 600 f/4 as it becomes a f5.6 and will autofocus.
