Odd telephoto question - 200mm f2 VR vs 300mm f4
Jul 17, 2010

Ok, I know that my question is quite odd: Which of this combos gives better IQ, AF, etc. on a D700?

  • 200mm f2 VR + TC2.0 III @ 400mm f4 or f5.6

  • 300mm f4 + TC1.4 @ 420mm f5.6

I've the 200mm f2 VR, which is a wonderful lens, and I need something longer (I'd just bought this lens, so now I can't afford another exotic).

The TC2.0 III seems very good and is about 4 times cheaper than buying a 300mm f4 and the TC1.4 ...
