    I don't see any mention against it's use in the TC-20E-II pamphlet. What's
    the f# of this lens? You lose two stops by adding the TC-20 and need a
    minimum f/5.6 coupled for AF and metering to function.

    I think it is strictly for AF-S. The mount has glass sticking out that
    will not allow me to attach it to my other lenses. My AF-S has a deep
    hole to recieve the teleconverter. I don't know for sure that other
    lenses don't have this deep hole.

    You can see in that picture the part that sticks out.
    It's around $400.

    know.

  9. Sounds good Ed but Paul means opposite you know, so I`m confused now :-/
    thought TC-20E II with 28-200 mm on D70 makes good combination.

    Nope, that's the side that connects to your lens. If your lens has a
    deep hole it might work.

    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.

  15. 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.
