I have exactly the same problem with the 2x teleconverter using a NIKON D800 and a 300 mm 1:4 D. Focus does not lock. However, I have better luck with the 1.4x teleconverter. I will appreciate to know why the 2x does not focus.

Hi.

One reason might be, that your 300mm f:4 becomes a 600mm f:8 - which makes the AF system (and the metering system) unstable.
