I have bought this convertor to accompany my 70 - 200 vr2 f2.8 and d300s. I wanted extra reach for bird photography and lacked the budget for the pro glass of this reach and wanted to continue using my "pro-glass" 70 - 200 f2.8. I think it is important to state that at the start, i can not vouch for results on differant or older products, i would be cautious using this on a slower lens and please check the nikon compatability of lenses. I have not had this for long but thought i would pass on my experiences so far.

I find the results wide open at 5.6 (as it reduces the lens by 2 stops) very sharp, easily on a par with the 1.4 i was using (shooting handheld). Stopped down they are even more impressive. I was very pleasently supprised. I have bought a 2x before and been so unhappy with the results never used it. I will continue to use this and print the results at a3 size. I appreciate to a pro the image quality will not be on a par with the top pro glass but who can really afford that. As a keen amatuer and believe me very obsessed with sharpness I am delighted with my purchase so far.

I have never written a review before but i deliberated on buying this for so long and was frustrated by the lack of reviews i could find to advise me I decided to take the plunge and very happy i did and thought other people with a similiar dilemar may find my experience helpfull.

I would recommend this product although expensive it is top quality and i have been very impressed with the results and when you consider the alternative being the 200 - 400 f4 at 5k or a 400 f2.8 at closer to 6 it seems a very good buy.

I bought this teleconverter specifically for use between my D700 & 70-200mm f2.8 VRII. Although quite expensive for a teleconverter, it's much cheaper than buying a longer zoom lens, despite the loss of two stops. There is some drop in quality & f8 (f4 x2) is often required to get some sharpness into the corners but this converter is about as good as a x2 converter will ever be.
Nikon also make x1.4 & x1.7 versions that are both smaller & lose less aperture than 2 stops.

I have had many teleconverters in the past 1.4, 1.7 and the previous 2 x versions of this teleconverter, using them with the 70-200 f2.8 Vr11 and the 300mm f2.8 Vr1 lenses for that extra bit of reach all bird and wildlife photographers crave. In the past the results when using the older 2 x converters have been very soft and disappointing compared to the 1.4 & 1.7 versions and even my 300mm f2.8 sometimes struggled for quick focus in low light conditions.
This new version however is a real step up, it focuses quickly with none of the hunting and provides excellent sharp images and as a result is a massive improvement on whats gone before. Although quite expensive it converts your 70-200 to a 140-400 lens at a fraction of the cost of a 200-400 lens with the loss of a few stops, but believe me at f6.3 or f8 the combination is as sharp as knife.
All in all this new version works very well, but check the Nikon lens compatibility before you purchase, as it won't always auto focus with many f4 + lenses.
