Umm, now re-reading this. The TC-20E is for AF-S and AF-I lenses as spec'd
on the pamphlet.

If as documented, you lose two f/stops due to the 2x converter, and the D70
needs a minimum of f/5.6 for auto focus and metering to work, this lens won't
work, since at the telephoto end, it + the TC is equivalent to f/11. This is
why the TCs generally list constant f/2.8 lenses (which give you f/5.6 when you
lose two f/stops).

That's the combo I have.The 70-200mm f/2.8 VR is a great lens. The only
downside I've seen is the lens' normally very snappy AF-S performance gets
a tad sluggish.

I guess all ranges from 200 mm up are a bit sluggish, but for a sharp lens
70-200 mm f/2.8
can wait to mount on .

Cheers.
