Pros: superb IQ
Cons:
Nothing

I have the AF-I version which has exact same optic design. Only difference is the cosmetic. IQ produced from this TC is simply superb. Highly recommended.

Pros: Optical clarity
Cons:
none

Using TC-14E mkI (optically identical but heavier build and slightly different exterior finish)
Seemingly, from my experience, this is optically invisible between lens and camera. Have used this teleconverter with Sigma 500mm f4.5 EX HSM and Nikkor AF-S 600mm f4.
Will work with Sigma HSM lenses with a minor modification, that can be carried out by the photographer with relative ease.

Pros: I use it with my 70-200 2.8 VR. This teleconvertor works as if it is an original component of the lens. I have seen absolutely no problems at all. Being 1.4X, it reduces the lens to F:4 from F 2.8, and camera has no AF problems etc.
Cons:
Fits to only a few lens. Check before buying from Nikon site. For example it won't fit my 35-70 2.8 or 28-70 2.8, as well as Tamron 90/2.8. It is designed specifically for certain lens, but it fits those as if part of the original lens.

If you have a 70-200 2.8 VR, you must have this teleconvertor as well. With 1.5X of digital SLR, the lens becomes 150-420 F:4 for only a fraction of the price of a new lens, with unsurpassed quality.
