  1. Hi,
    I have recently bought a Nikon ED 80-200mm F2.8 D lens.
    Can anyone please tell me which teleconverterer I can use with this lens.
    Thanks !!!!

    I bought the Tamaron 2X teleconverter and the images are not as sharp as
    without. I didn't buy the Nikon as it was almost twice the price and now
    maybe think I should have. I used mine to take some pictures of Blue
    Herons and the pictures are diffused. Knowing what I know from my own
    recent experience, next time I will buy the Nikon.
    If you are in Canada and want to buy a tamaron 2x teleconverter, drop me
    a note :)

    By the way you didn't say if you intend using it on a Nikon digital or
    not and my experience was with a D70.

  3. Hi,
    Thanks for the reply.
    I am using the lens on a Nikon D200.

    Perhaps I should go for the Nikon converter.
    I was just thinking how much I would use it, and could I justify the outlay.

    All The Best !

    You have a D200, you have ED glass, why would you choose anything but the
    best you can afford?

    I'm quite happy with the results of using the Nikon TC-20E II (2x) AF-S,
    AF-I Teleconverter with the 70-200mm f/2.8G ED-IF AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor lens
    on my D70 and D200. Samples may be found at

    look for anything with fl over 200mm
