Yeah the TC20E-I I have really isn't that good. I'll buy the III. Thanks.

You're welcome.

BTW, be careful onto which lens you mount the TC 20 E-III. You need high quality fast lenses to get the most out of it.

The TC 20 E -III works very well on my 200VR.

If I'm careful, it also works on my 500VR (though it focuses much better on my D4 than it did the D3)

Though I don't have it, the TC 20 E III should work well on the 400 2.8, and I've seen decent results on the 70-200VR II (might not be acceptable IQ for everyone though).

For some more info on which lenses the TC's work well with, see this:


Trying to use the TC 20 E-III on a less than stellar lens with an f-stop > f/4, is not likely to give acceptable results.

Best regards,
