Nikon 300mm F2.8 VRII + D7100 : To TC or not to TC... that's the question
Aug 21, 2013

As the title says: If you have a D7100 with 24MP and no OLPF, does it give advantages to teleconvert a 300mm F2.8 VRII?

I would like to have 420mm F4 VR but if the image degradation is almost as big as cropping than I'd rather keep my F2.8, faster shutter speed/lower ISO and crop.

Also if it is still worth the effort then how about the new TC2.0 III; you read everywhere that this one works very well with F2.8 lenses but I've read somewhere but can't seem to find it anymore that 2.0TC are no longer relevant with the high resolving body's like D800 and D7100!

Anyone with insight into this specific combination of D7100+300mm+TC? If you have sample pictures for this comparison (with or without TC) then feel free to post!

Best Regards
