70-200 VRII + 1.7xTC or 70-300
Feb 29, 2012

For approximately the same price I can purchase either a TC1.7 or a Nikon 70-300 lens. I have a 70-200 VRII and would like a little more reach. Does anyone have this equipment and could offer a suggestion as to which is better? The max aperature on the 70-300 is 4.5 which is about the same as the 1.7 on the 70-200 but the 70-200+TC is a better option at the long end. I am leaning towards the TC just because it gives me the reach without needing another lens in my bag.

So which would be a better option?

Thanks,
Mark
