I might add that a lot of tc's require a lot of auto focus fine tuning. I have mine set at a +15 using the tc 1.4EII, Nikon 500 and d800e and am getting really sharp results.

Point of focus on the following image is on the left birds eye.

Again, I have to agree with Larry. My 500mm F4 + 1.4TC requires a +20 fine tune but is spot on for really sharp results also. Try this one
