Nikon TC-17E II 1.7x AF-S

17E
Review Date: Apr 2, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Sharpness (if you don't open it up)....flexibility, adds good reach to my 70-200.
Cons:
not as sharp as the TC1.4...

I bought this last year shooting large field sports like LAX and a lens larger than my 70-200 wasn't in my budget.

I was pleased w/ the combo. Note that I took the recommendations found here: http://zaps21.com/photo/TC17tests/TC17tests.htm

very helpful and as a result I scrupulously avoid shooting it wide open.

Now that I have a 120-300f2.8, I probably won't use it too much, but I'm going to hang onto it. I do think that I might add a TC 1.4 to my stable, in the future.
