I really like the bird with the out spread wings.  It's fake isn't it, like stuffed?

I think Nikon really made a mistake by taking away the aperture ring on their new G lenses.  This makes them hard to use on extension tubes.  I don't know how it works on the 1.4 and 1.7 telextenders.  Maybe they do.

With a Nikon or Kenko teleconverter you still have full control of the aperture. The teleconverter has a pass-thru linkage to adjust the aperture of the lens. Kenko's F-mount extension tubes have all the same functionality, as would a Nikon TC with all the glass removed.
