p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Problem with Nikon TC-14E teleconverter


I have a Nikon TC-14E that I use exclusively with my 300mm f/4 AFS lens. Since last Spring that combo refuses to autofocus on my D7200 or now my new D750. The lens focuses fine without the TC on both cameras.

Suspecting something was wrong with the TC I sent it to Authorized Photo Service in Chicago. They checked and cleaned it thoroughly but found no problem in their tests. I got it back yesterday and it still won't work with either the D7200 nor D750.

But I just tried it on my wife's D5500 and it works fine!

Any ideas?

If your 300 f4 AFS is this lens: AF-S NIKKOR 300mm f/4D IF-ED, it is not compatible with the TC 14E III, but is compatible with the TC 14EII. Here's the Nikon TC-Lens compatibility chart.

If you're using the right TC, then you might try cleaning the electrical contacts on the TC and lens.

It is certainly compatible (it's a TC-14E AF-I so it's not in that chart) since it worked fine for several years with a D7000 and D7100, and works now with a D5500. And all contacts have been cleaned carefully.

Yep, I like to remain incognito.
