Last time I tried one of the things was in the late 1960's and it was junk. I understand that better devices are available and I was pondering the advisability of using one with a Nikon 80-200 f2.8 AF-D. Could anyone suggest what might work the best?

My own fault for not being more concise Apologies for my lack of clarity.

I am only interested in a teleconverter.

I understand Nikon teleconverters don't work with screwdriver lenses and I will be looking at Kenko.

I was hoping for a response from someone who has personal experience using at least one of the available Kenko teleconverters on the Nikon 80-200 f2.8 AF-D lens. Unless I am mistaken, they have two versions in 1.4x and two versions in 2x.

In re-reading my first post, it looks like I could possibly use some assistance with my typing accuracy  also.
