? Best Nikon teleconverter
Jun 10, 2012

Hi All,

I'm in the market for the best teleconverter for my Nikon 70-200 2.8 VR1 lens and D800 combo.

Nikon has two, the 2X

and the 1.4X

I'll be purchasing in Canada, so the status of "backorder" at B&H is not an issue.

Thoughts on which converter is sharper/better will be highly appreciated. Loss of light (1 stop vs 2 stops) won't be an issue as I'll be using a tripod.

This morning, I was lucky to spot a crow in her nest (nest well camouflaged by branches and leaves) outside one of our upper windows. I would like to photograph her and her fledglings as they grow over the next couple of months. The 70-200 mm does not have enough reach. Another telephoto lens in the 300+mm range is not in my budget at this time.

Thanks!
