Hi all, I know that Nikon claims the D7000 will only autofocus reliably with F5.6 or brighter lenses attached. I have read reports though that this is done to cover their ass, and it can autofocus with smaller max apertures in decent lighting. I am curious, has anyone tried the new 70-200 F4 or the older 300mm F4 with the 2xTCIII to test autofocus? I am especially curious about abilities with the 70-200/F4 + 2xTCIII shooting at 400mm F8..... thanks for any info!
I use the 1.7x on my 300/4 and it worked pretty well in good light. W/ a 2.0x it's not so good. Slow and iffy on focus lock.
Now one of the newer bodies it would be fine as they can focus to f/8 in the center points.
Thanks for your reply David. When shooting the 300/4 +1.4TC what is the wide open aperture? F6.3?
If I got a D600 and put the 300/4 + 2xTCIII on it, that could make for a very cool setup for decent light, but what I'd really like is a D7100 with F8 AF capabilities added to the lineup!!
