Thanks for all comments.
Leighton, loved the bokeh playing;
Peter (SA), what a view you have, nice debut with the 28 PC!
Samy, gorgeous red leaf;
Rafael, what a truly spetacular steal you got with that near pristine 135/3.5! Congrats;
Ray, simply gorgeous scenarios you have posted lately.
This afternoon I experimented for the second time my modified (by a Canadian guy at ebay) TC16A. It could be my fault, but with the D7000 and the 180/2.8 I had a low % of keepers. Perhaps my combo needs an AF-tune adjust or simply I need to use a tripod!!
We need to manual focus then the TC does a fine AFocusing.
Peter B is correct, the TC deteriorates the image specially wide open. AF was sometimes "hesitating"
This was the only decent shot with the combo this afternoon:

One of the first test shots with the modified TC16A + D7000.
Nikkor 180mm f/2.8 AI-S ED + TC16A (= 288mm f/4.5) hand held, ISO 500, f/2.8(=4.5) at 1/400s. ~40% cropped
Exif shows a 145mm lens at f/4, but this is due to the modified CPU. In fact ViewNX2 reads a 70-210mm f/4 lens!!
