Peter, you may be interested in this link:
The guy has some excellent experiences with a moded TC16A + 500mm f/4 P. As your 600mm is f/4 it should work in a similar way
For a short period I had a D2x + unmodded TC16A + both 500/4 and the 600/5.6 ais working AF. Note that even the slower 600/5.6 had AF, but on the D2x I remenber the lens must be wide open to AF works.
I have some old test shots here:
with my ex (missing it...) 500/4P (= 800mm f/6.4):
with 600/5.6 (= 960mm...Show more →
very impressive images, Jose. I'm pretty sure I can make it work with an f/4 lens. I may even add a chip to the lens, although it doesn't really make a difference with the TC-16a, I think. I'll probably buy a TC-14E first for image quality and less extreme reach - AF isn't on top of my list. I do need to find me a decent Gitzo monopod first, plus a lenscoat cover to keep the lens looking nice even with my clumsy handling
