I use mine on my D300 and on my D700 (which I DID have to fine tune a bit for backfocus) all the time. In my case, no adjustments needed for the 300, only for the 500. In fact, these days I rarely take teh 1.7x off the 300.
It IS visibly a bit softer with the 1.7 on it, but that's part of the equation, and as the photos from trenchmonkey show, you can do some good work with it if your technique is sharp enough.
I will offer this for tripod work........have you changed the lens's lousy tripod base out for a Kirk replacement or something similar? And are you using a remote release. Try a test. Set up on the tripod and get everything dead still - without touching the rig - at about 1/1000 (none of the other settings matter) and trip the shutter release while watching through the viewfinder. Now you know why technique to master camera/shutter motion is so important.....especially if you are working off a tripod rig.
