Nikon D600 with the 105mm f/2.8, 300mm f/4 and TC-14EII
I've had the teleconverter TC-14EII for awhile now but haven't used it much. Over the course of this last week, however, that has changed. My hang-up with using it before was a slight, and I mean slight, image degradation. I read where it was mentioned that this teleconverter maybe made a 5% difference in image quality and I can see it if I compare images side be side and do so on my big monitor. Well, guess what? I'll just use it from now on and have fun. After using it this past week on the two lenses mentioned I know I'll keep it attached to the camera as a welcome addition to being able to extend my reach when shooting wildlife.
One really big plus was that it didn't slow down the autofocus of these lenses at all as far as I could tell. That means they still locked focus very fast and accurately. By the way, I know my last post was about using a monopod in the field but the images presented here were shot freehand. Hope you enjoy!
