Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Good Converter I have the TC 1.4 ii and iii as well as the TC 1.7ii and TC 2.0iii I use the TC 1.7 ii with my Nikon D810 and 300mm f2.8 vrii. I regard the D810 as the best multipurpose camera ever made by Nikon as well as the 300 f2.8. The 300mm f2.8 is on the short end of the telephoto's and lack the reach of the long once especially for bird photography. This is why I use TC's as the lens is very easy to handle in a SUV that I use most of the time for our wildlife photography. The TC 1.7 was the black sheep of the TC's in my bag until a recent trip where I decided to test it extensively. The focus is very fast, the IQ very good and you have to be a pixel peeper to notice and loss in sharpness. The TC 1.7 is a very underrated tool and works exceptionally well with f2.8 lenses. I have used it with the 300f4 and 70-200f4. in good light it performs very well but have an impact on the focus speed. For what it was designed to do, it is an exceptional piece of glass. May 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome addition I have used this for several months with a 300mm 2.8 lens and a 70-200mm 2.8 lens. I photograph lots of birds in flight and have found little or no loss in sharpness of the image. I have to believe people who find problems with teleconverters may have other issues. September 23, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Exceptional I have used this for several months. It has performed beyond my expectations. I find little or no loss of clarity in my images. I use all three teleconverters on a 300mm 2.8 and a 70-200mm 2.8 and couldn't be happier with the versatility they provide. August 19, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by For what it is ,it does a good job If you use the he TC1.7II properly it is a very good teleconverter. I use it with my 70-200mm f2.8 on my D90 which makes it equivalent to 200mm to 530mm lens. For some the downsides are the lens is slower and the image not as sharp as when the teleconvertor is not used.I don't have $5K for a 500mm lens and in most cases the image is acceptable with the teleconvertor. To get best performance I shot my 70-200mm at a minimum of f5.6 or f 6.3 . If you set the lens to 180mm instead of 20mm the image is a little sharper. The TC1.4II gives a sharper image but less magnification. Remember to shoot at a minimum of 1/250 to 1/500 and you will get some great shots. July 29, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Moon and Space Shots Made Easy I've used the TC-17E II for my Motor Sports photography and loved it. Fast, sharp, clear shots on both Auto Focus and Manual. Then one night I set up in the yard to do some "Space Exploration." Wow! With my 200mm lens on the D700 I got photos of the Moon that were great. I also found several galaxies that I knew were there, but couldn't see. The best shot was all the details in Orion. I could pick out the M42 and M43 galaxies, Betelgeuse, Bellatrix and Rigel along with all the other stars that make up the constellation. The details were wonderful! June 17, 2011

Answer: 
Nikon DSLR will only autfocus reliably with lenses that have a maximum aperture of f5.6 or less. The new D4,D800,D600 and D7100 have sensors that will autfocus at f/8 max aperture.
Example a 70-200 f/4 with a 2x converter has a maximum aperture of f/8 (f/4 X 2 =f/8).

How do you AutoFocus fine tune a D800 with a TC-17E II?

0out of 0found this question helpful.
Was this helpful?helpful0unhelpful0
One of the reviews under the TC-20E III stated "I wanted to get more reach since going FX with the D800. I was very surprised that with some AF fine tuning of +15 this converter is as sharp if not more than the 1.7. I also found increased sharpness by AF fine tuning my 1.7x converter." I have a TC-17E II which I utilize on a D800 with a AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II Lens but the pictures seem soft compared to just digitally zooming/cropping my picture without the TC.
