Re: TC for 70-200 VR

I have the 70-200 VR as well and have tried the various TCs.  I thought the 1.4x looked very good but going from 200-280 did not seem worth the cost of the TC.   The 2.0 VIII was well reviewed withr the 70-200mm VR II so I tried it on my VR model.  I did not like the results.  I had to stop down to F8 or F11 to get a sharp image and the focus was a little slow.

I have settled on the 1.7 TC which is the best balance in my opinion - you get extra reach with good sharpness, just stop down a bit.
