Best combination I found - TC 2.0 III & 70-200 VR II
In reply to John_I, Dec 12, 2012

I agree on the 2.0III and 70-200 VRII.  I don't have a 1.7 so can't comment on that but in reality there's not a hell of a lot of point to the 1.4. And my copy of the TC 1.4II coupled with my copy of the 70-200 VR II, just doesn't give me the same IQ as without it - not even close.

70 x 1.4 =100mm ( you already have that in the 70-200 )

100 x 1.4 = 140 mm ( you already have that in the 70-200 )

150 x 1.4= 210 mm  ( you're close enough to having this )

So a 1.4 TC doesn't even come into play except from 150 to 200 mm, and I'd much prefer to switch to my 300 f4 AF-S then anyway.

Even the 2.0 III will only get used when I want to go with one body / one lens and not sure of what my lens need will be.
