Re: 200 f2.0 and teleconverters

How well does the Nikon 200 F2.0 VR2 handle all three teleconverters?

Better than any other of the Nikon tele "exotics".

200Vr without a TC:
Nikon D3 ,Nikkor 200mm f/2G IF-ED AF-S VR
1/2000s f/4.0 at 200.0mm iso200

200VR with TC 20 E-III:
Nikon D3 ,Nikkor 200mm f/2G IF-ED AF-S VR ,TC 20 E-III
1/1250s f/4.0 at 400.0mm iso200

From Thom Hogan's take on various Tele 'exotics' (including the 200VR) with TC's:

However, whenever possible, it's good to be close enough to use the 200VR without a TC:

Nikon D3 ,Nikkor 200mm f/2G IF-ED AF-S VR
1/1600s f/2.5 at 200.0mm iso200

Nikon D3 ,Nikkor 200mm f/2G IF-ED AF-S VR
1/1000s f/4.0 at 200.0mm iso200

Nikon D4 ,Nikkor 200mm f/2G IF-ED AF-S VR
1/640s f/6.3 at 200.0mm iso400

Nikon D3 ,Nikkor 200mm f/2G IF-ED AF-S VR ,SB-900
1/2000s f/2.8 at 200.0mm iso200

Nikon D3 ,Nikkor 200mm f/2G IF-ED AF-S VR
1/800s f/2.2 at 200.0mm iso200

Best Regards,
