Nikon Z Teleconverter TC-2.0x Reviews

Works Great!

I have used the TC-2X so far with the Z Mount 100-400mm zoom lens for some bird photography. I have been very happy with it so far. The images I have obtained are sharp and I certainly appreciate that as well as the extra reach. My understanding from the reviews on YouTube is that the Z Mount lenses are better than the F Mount lenses with the adapters. I have not tried the adapter (FTZ II) yet.

Good

2X TCs are never great, but this is as good as I've ever seen or used. While I wait the decade it's going to take to get my 800mm this is an option.

Quality and performance seem great.

I haven't done extensive testing, but many online pixel peepers have and they all seem to agree there's no or almost no effect on image quality. My 70-200 is still f/5.6 with this, so that's still quite usable for what I do. You need to pay attention to the big warning diagram on the case they give you with it. Take a moment to think when installing and be sure to not stick the long protruding part into the camera. It's a very obvious thing if you're paying attention at all. It would be a disaster if you were half asleep in the dark and fumbled it in the wrong way. Good bye sensor.

I was a little worried when I opened it as it has a slight rattle sound if lightly shaken, but a little googling revealed this is normal and goes away completely when mounted. Really nice to have a longer reach on the 70-200 lens.

Wicked sharp.

Tried it a few times with my new Z 100-400 and noticed no degradation of the photo sharpness. I usually photo birds from home and like a little more depth of field, so I shoot mostly at F8. With the 2x teleconverter, the f stop goes from F9 to F11. That's fine for me, but I do have to adjust ISO and shutter speed to compensate. It's a joy beyond the old 2x converter which auto focuses with none of my SLR lenses. The old 2x is waiting for dust to collect before I send it to the recycle bin. My eyes are too old for effective manual focus. So the Z 2x is an exciting change.

It is still a teleconverter

After seeing so many stellar reviews and hearing how much better the Z TCs, I thought I would go ahead and buy one. I have the Nikon Z 400mm f/4.5 which, together with the TC-2x, would give me 800mm. So was excited to give it a try. First I did some test shots comparing it with the 500mm PF plus the 1.7tc, an 850mm combo with almost the same f value. On my Z9, the older lens and tc actually looked sharper! And this combo does work okay in the field. However after a couple of weeks with the 400mm plus TC-2x, I do think the performance of the newer combo is better than the older one, grabbing focus faster and more accurately. In fact the eye focus works better with the TC-2x on then without it on. However it is f/9 so if light is low, the focus does struggle. Clearly the 800mm f/6.3 would be better though much more expensive and heavy. So one can use the TC-2x together with the 400mm to get an 800mm lens though one does take some hit in sharpness and clearly in the maximum aperture.

Great with Z100-400mm lens

Very pleased with results using the 2x teleconverter with the Z100-400mm lens on my Z7II. The OP/TECH USA 303 pouch is a better fit for this teleconverter than the 301 which is shown as an accessory.

Compatibility issues in some cases seem to be ...

Compatibility issues in some cases seem to be more mechanical/coupling than electrical/contacts. A Q&A answer by Ryan (B&H Staff) under the Z TC-1.4x teleconverter noted that that teleconverter won't work with the FTZ because the opening on the back of the FTZ Adapter is not large enough for the extending piece of the teleconverter to fit inside. As the diameter of the extending piece of this Z TC-2x teleconverter is distinctly smaller than that of the Z TC-1.4x, would this teleconverter work with the redesigned FTZ II adapter?
Asked by: Matthew
We tested the FTZ II with the Nikon Z Teleconverter TC-2X and while the optical tube does indeed fit into the FTZ II, the FTZ II and TC-2X were unable to couple correctly or lock into each other. Unfortunately this means they are by design not compatible. Furthermore, the extended optical tube likely needs to be as close as possible to the rear element in order to function correctly, and when mounted onto the FTZ II from behind would likely not allow the teleconverter to function correctly with your F-mount lens even if it was able to couple to the FTZ II adapter.

will this teleconver work with AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED?
Asked by: Anonymous
No, the Nikon Z Teleconverter TC-2x will not work with the Nikon AF-S VR Zoom-NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED Lens. The Nikon Z Teleconverter will only work when mounted directly to specific Z-mount lenses, it will not work with any F-mount lenses even when using the FTZ adapter. The only things that would work with that 70-300mm lens are some third party teleconverters for the F-mount, thoughquality can suffer and the camera may struggle to focus. As a thiurd party option I would look at the Kenko Teleconverter linked here, https://bhpho.to/3wVZQiE.

Can I use the Nikon Z7 ii, with Nikon Z TC-2X, then FTZ adapter and finally an AFS 500mm f/5.6 PF ED VR telephoto lens?
Asked by: janos
I use a Z9 with the 500 AFS great results. Most of the time I use the TC1.4x and occasionally with the TC2.0x. The focusing speed and accuracy with the TC2.0x drops off is a step compared to the TC1.4x but you can make it work satisfactorily. I use the FTZII to mate the lens/TC combo to the Nikon Z9. I suspect that the performance of Z7ii and the 500 PF/TC2.0 x will not be to your liking. There is a large difference in the computing power between the Z9 and the Z7ii in terms of autofocus calculations and sensor scene analysis. You should rent the gear first and test the performance to see if it works to your liking.
