Hi all,

I am using the 300m f4 PF with the 1.4x lll on my D500 and it works great. I also use the 1.4x lll on my 200-500 f5.6 and at f8 still focuses quickly and fairly good resolution. The 300mm with 2x lll would be a much a smaller and lighter package.

Just turned 80 and am feeling I need less weight.


I had the same idea that you did re small light 600mm package using the 2X TCIII.

Did the 1.4 and the 2.0 with the 300 f4 PF on a D800E.

The 1.4 was OK.

The 2.0 combo was not. A Nikkor 70-200 @ 200 (400 mm) with the 2X TCIII was much sharper than that 2.0 on the 300. That's how bad it was.
