FWIW my 200-500 VR is buzzing loudly with a Kenko x1.4 TC (VR on)

but not with a Sigma x1.4 TC, and of course not with a Nikon TC.

This indicates an issue with the Kenko. Apart from cleaning the contacts at both ends of the converter there seems little you (as distinct from Kenko) can do about the problem.

Some say if some of your photos are not good the camera you use is only a recording device.
