    Bought a "Kenko 2x Teleplus Pro 300 DGX teleconverter. I bought it primarily for macro work especially with my AFD 105mm 2.8 Nikkor Micro.

    I did try some shots of a PC board - but realize that for this kind of shot I really should use a tripod.
    Played around with my new toy shooting an old PC board I had kicking around.

    Autofocus does work - but poorly - lots of hunting.
    In the box there was a notice that AF does not work with the 60mm AFS macro - which is my other macro.
    But again, I'm always in manual when shooting macro.

    I'll be curious to see how it works on some of my other lenses.

    Have you ever tried extension tubes? Kenko makes a set that is compatible with Nikon bodies--they tend to be used more for macro than a teleconverter. Manual focus is better suited for macro. Can you use Live View on your body? I've found using LV and manually focusing gives me better results. Good luck and have fun!

    I macro every which way

    Kenko extension tubes - check
    Magnifying filters - check
    Macro (aka Nikon-speak Micro) lenses - check and check (60mm AFS and 105mm AFD)

    And that macro light gizmo pictured with my latest addition the Kenko 2x T.C.
    I've also played around with DIY macro light benders.

    I have also used the Kenko 1.4 TC with my macro lenses.

    I have a longer lens macro on my lens lust list - like the Sigma 180 - at about two grand CDN $
    And I've looked longingly at the Laowa 15mm f4 Wide Angle 1:1 Macro (under $700 CDN$).

    I also have fun taking shots of bugs with telephoto lenses - hard to nail it from 10 feet away with the 200-500mm lens but nice when you get it.

    I really have to start buying my guitar strings on line. Last time I walked into Guitar Center to get strings, I walked out with an Ibanez acoustic.
    Today I went to get some more strings I walked out with this.
