Thanks Kerry,

These are good points.

You're welcome, Keith.  I forgot to mention that, if you have the 70-200vr I, as I do, then you probably won't be happy using any of the 2x TCs.  I've purchased both of the 2x TCs II & III and they don't work as well as I'd hoped for IQ.  I don't have a 70-200vr II, but most of what I've read indicates that it works better with the 2x TC.  I don't have a 1.7x TC, so, unless more tests indicate otherwise, the only TC I'll probably be using with my FX cameras is the 1.4.
