Is this lens compatible with a TC-14E? I'm looking for something 100-150mm f2 for an indoor sports event in really poor light.
I had a D2X. On that camera, if I remember correctly, any give lens "acted" like a lens 1.5 X the actual length. Therefore,
I am about to buy the AF-S NIKKOR 85mm f/1.4G which will on the D3200 function as an 85 mm (ideal for portrait) but when I finally get to buy the D4X, will then that lens function as an 85 mm X 1.5 and not ideal for portraits.
I am under the impression that the DX series box makes the lens 1.5 X as long but that the D3200 does not. I don't want a 85 mm at $1700 that will become 1.5 X longer when place on the coming D4X.
I may be just confused and if so, I apologize.
