    Re: Nikkor AFS 80-200 2.8 - no AF with the TC-17 ??

    It could be an AF-S lens...

    If it is, it will have the words "Silent Wave Motor" on the gold band behind the focal-length indicator.

    Edit: Found a pic...

    And so it might be an AF-S lens then.

    Lol...Ken Rockwell. I used to quote him, too...used to being the operative phrase. Let's just say he's not a popular topic of discussion here.

    Right. I too don't have a lot for faith in his actual reviews, but I think his posting does prove you can have an AF-S 80-200mm lens with an aperture ring.

    Actually IMHO at risk of flaming his reviews used to be spot on....at least all his reviews of my older Nikon gear were.

    I could not find a TC that would work with my 80-200 AF D F2.8 but it is not AFS. The lens crops so beautifully I wouldn't use it anyway most likely

    Nikkor AFS 80-200 2.8  - no AF with the TC-17 ??
    This is a photo of MY lens, an AF-S 80-200 2.8

    The MOST important thing is that TC17 works perfect with my 105 micro nikkor.
    WHich is does -- I have tried it and it is perfect, giving me a 180 mm macro lens, just what I needed!


    I really dont care anymore if my 80-200 works with my TC-17, this 80-200 is way to big to walk with me in the mountains. I know for sure my 80-200 will be used only at home, shooting local events as carraces and kids playing football. That one and my 150-600 Sigma -- these two lenses will be a perfect match, without need for TCs.

    I would recommend trying to clean the contacts on you lens. Here is a link to the procedure recommended by Nikon Europe https://nikoneurope-en.custhelp.com/...s-cpu-contacts

    Conclusion. My 80-200 2.8 works perfect in every resperect on my d750 The autofocus is fast and silent.

    The tc-17 is a bad match for 80-200 in af sense. It will not autofocus.

    In every other respect it works perfect,

    Now I will explore the kenko option.

    Know you are saying:

    If you don't need TCs, why worry about the kenko option?
