Teleconverter for 55-200 f/4-5.6G VR
Aug 21, 2008

IIRC, I read it was frowned upon using a teleconverter on an already slow piece of glass. However, I rarely shoot in low light, except for night scenes, but I wouldn't be using a teleconverter on night scenes anyway.

Do any of the Nikon teleconverters auto-focus on the D60 body? I was thinking of going extreme and getting a 2x to bump my reach to 400mm.

I really don't have the $1000+ to get a Nikon 400mm telephoto lens, so I must shop low and get a teleconverter.
