question

Shooting with a Nikon 80-400 on a D800-- will the Tc-20EIII 2X auto focus?
Asked by: Anonymous
While the teleconverter will fit on the 80-400mm, you will most likely lose the ability to autofocus when using this lens/teleconverter combination. Please take note of the following information when using teleconverters:When using teleconverters, you are not only magnifying the lens by the conversion rate of the teleconverter, but also the F/stop value. For example, when using a 2x converter on a lens with a variable f-stop range of f4-5.6, your lens' f-stop range is now f8-f11. Most SLR cameras require at least f8 worth of light in order to autofocus. With that in mind most lenses that are not luminous to begin with will require you to manually focus the lens as the autofocus feature wont likely work. Autometering would still be possible.

question

Hi, I have a Nikon D200 and a AF-S Nikkor 70-300 1:4.5 - 5.6 G Lens, wanted to know if this TC-20E III 2x Teleconverter will work with them.
Asked by: Anonymous
No it will not. The Nikon TC-20E III converter is only compatible with a select list of Nikon Pro series lenses, of which none of the 70-300mm type lenses are compatible.

question

I am looking for a (2X)tele-converter for my Nikon D40 and D-3100.I shoot with the 55-200 and the 55-300.
Asked by: Anonymous
Both lenses will not work with a teleconverter. To use a teleconverter the lens needs to be 70mm or longer. And to autofocus with a 2x teleconverter on the D40 and D3100 the lenses need to be f/2.8

If you are referring to the Nikon 200-500, this will work on that lens, but Nikon never made a 200-400mm.

I have Sigma Contemporary 150-600mm lens. Will this converter work with this lens?
Asked by: Vladimir
It should be compatible, though it is not guaranteed by Nikon. Sigma TC-2001 2x Teleconverter for Nikon F (B&H # SITC2001N MFR # 870306) is compatible though.

question

will the TC-20E III 2X work with the Nikkor 28X300 lens? If not, will any teleconverter work with this lens?
Asked by: Anonymous
The Nikon TC-20E III 2x Teleconverter for AF-S & AF-I Lenses is only compatible with a select number of Nikons pro-level telephoto zoom lenses, and is not compatible with the 28-300mm lens. Unfortunately, there isn't a teleconverter that can be used with the 28-300mm lens. Lenses that have a wide angle, have a lens construction where the rear element sticks out far more than a lens that has a 50mm or longer focal length. For this reason, lenses that have focal lengths wider than 50mm are not typically compatible with teleconverters, even if you could fit one on the back of the lens, you would again seriously risk damaging the rear element of the lens.
