    1.4 Extender with a Nikon 200-500

    Hi Guys
    Just wondering if any of you have used a Nikon TC-14 E II extender with a Nikon 200-500 mm lens. Were there any problems?

    My 200-500 is permanently married to a 1.4 TC on my D7100. Never had an issue.
    Don't mind me... I'm out roaming around somewhere between Zone III and VII.


    Go forth and actuate!

    You will only lose 1-stop of light with a 1.4x teleconverter so you'd be shooting at f/8. If you are in low light situations, you might find it won't achieve focus as quickly as it would on a bright day. But you could always remove it if necessary in those situations - or focus manually.

    I am shooting with a 7200 so I can up the ASA to the point where low light will not be a problem.

    harlerider, that isn't what I meant. When you add the teleconverter, the amount of light that reaches the sensor is less. It doesn't have anything to do with your ISO. If there isn't enough light hitting the sensor, the AF will go in and out trying to lock focus. I'm talking about photos later in the day when the sun is going down or early morning before the skies are really bright. Not really a deal breaker but just wanted you to be aware because you'd be shooting at f/8 for your widest aperture. Once the teleconverter is mounted, you won't be able to shoot at f/5.6, f/6.3, or f/7.1.

    That's okay! Just wanted you to be aware. That said...if it was me, I'd be all over it wanting to give it a go! Unfortunately for me, a lens like this is too heavy. Previously I had tennis elbow surgery so am limited with weight. Like I said, if it starts getting too dark for the AF to work, then you could remove the teleconverter and see if you can achieve focus that way because you'd be at f/5.6.
