About Me Professional
Comments about Nikon TC-17E II AF-S Teleconverter:
I use this mostly with a nikon 300m f2.8 lens and sometimes a 400mm f2.8. This is the second one of these I have purchased, the original one started to develop an intermittent fault that sometimes stopped the shutter from firing and caused the lens to stop down to f22 with metadata saying I was using a 16mm lens. I find it gives good sharp results and use it a lot shooting football and cricket. Only thing that puzzles me is why the metadata indicates that the focal length is 700mm when fitted to the 300 when it should be 510mm.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Nikon TC-17E ll AF-S Teleconverter
from Langtoft Peterborough
About Me Semi-Professional
See all my reviews
This converter is mainly used with my Nikon AF-S 70-200mm f2.8 ED.G.VRII on a Nikon D3S for low light bird photography, or for small motor sport events fitted to a D1X, both these cameras match well with this Teleconverter. Size of the converter is excellent not heavy or long, in fact fitted to the cameras above you dont know you have it fitted, this converter will make your 70-200 f2.8 a f4.8 at 340mm, I would recommend this to anyone, 10 out of 10 Nikon.

This is as good as matched multipliers come. Obviously making the most of this glass depends on it being linked to a high quality lens such as the Nikon 70-200 f1.9 pro lens. The coupling gives an impressively extended focal length with little or no reduction in quality.

used with a canon eos 550d+ nikon adaptor,and connected to a 600mm high quality astro-scope.very sharp with extra detail resolved on aircraft for example.needed to go to iso 400 @ 1/2500 sec to keep image brightness up and camera shake to a minimum. total hand-held focal length 1000mm!!highly recommended!
So much difference
from East Yorkshire
Using with Nikon 300mm F2.8 I now have a 500mm if I choose. Almost hand holdable, sharp birds at 1/500sec and faster.With this lens no significant loss of autofocus speed or vr function noticed.

This is my secret weapon whilst on wedding shoots. The quality is superb, with little if any loss of image quality when used with my Nikon 70-200 2.8 on the D3s.Attaching the TC-17EII on to the 70-200 2.8 give me a 340mm lens, which comes in very handy when I have to work from the back of a church, or for picking out faces in the congregation when I am able to shoot from the front of the church.

get that bit closer
I've used the Nikon 2x converter for a while now, mainly on a Nikon 300mm F2.8. The results have been OK but I have to say the results with this converter are better. Sure, you loose a bit of magnification compared to the 2x but this is made up for by the amount of detail it captures. I found the 2x was OK down to F8 but less than this and detail was lost. With the 1.7X I've got some super results right down to F5.6. Auto focus is still very fast and even works well when using tracking focus on flying birds. I guess you're never going to get the same results with a converter as you would with a 500/600mm prime lens but the cost of one of these is very prohibitive for most. The converter is an affordable way to get that bit more reach and get reasonable results to boot.So if your in the market for a converter I'd say go for the 1.7X over the 2X. I'm sure you won't be disappointed with the results.
