It's great with the 1.7x and good with the 2.0x (Mk2)

I've used my f4 AF-S with both on the D-3, and while the TC-E 20 II is good I get much better results with the 1.7.... If I wan't to go longer then it's the K-5 + DA*300 plus Kenko 1.5. Although AF-S is faster to focus and a bit more reliable than SDM - in terms of sharpness the DA* is better....

I actually bought the 20 first, but it doesn't go out much now that I have the 17, but if I do go out fully laden - then it's 70-200 + 1.7x and 300 + 2x

20 years ago a maginifent Mickey Thomas free-kick and Steve Watkin's sublime winner knocked the Gunners out of the FA Cup - 1st vs 92nd... Let's hope Andy Morrell's Red Army continue WREXHAM's unsurpassed Giant-Killing tradition tomorrow.....
