What TC for the 70-200mm VR

the 1.4 , 1.7 or 2.0?

I hadf the 1.4x and 1.7x. I have kept the 1.4 and sold the 1.7 simply because I prefer the 1.4. It had little impact on IQ, is very small and compact and only costs me 1 stop. Obviously the 1.7 got me more reach but I rarely used it in preference to the 1.4.

I wasn't happy with the 2x but I have not used the latest version (mk III) which looks better. The price puts me off. It looks good though.

Also, is the 70-200 VRII much better than the VR.

The VR is excellent even on FX. Utimately I did upgrade because I used the MkII for landscape and preferred it. It does have more pronounced 'focus breathing' than the VR but this is partially offset but a better closest focus distance and the fact it is quite superb at close distances. Is it worth the extra? That depends on your bank balance and how understanding your wife is.
