V2+FT-1+Kenko Teleplus 300 Pro 1.4X+18-70mm non-VR

Recently bought a used mint condition Kenko Teleplus 300 Pro 1.4X, trying to extend my AF-P 70-300mm at the long end.  Too bad it doesn’t autofocus with the AF-P.  Desperate a bit, I tested the 1.4X TC  with my other “old lenses” (70-300mm AF-S, 50mm F1.8D, etc.), none would AF.  The last lens I tried was the 18-70mm AF (non-VR) that came with my D50 ancient years ago.  Surprise, the AF worked!

So I mounted FT-1 on my V2, adding the 1.4X TC, then the 18-70mm, captured my favorite hummingbird in the backyard with this setup.  I think I am falling love again with the 18-70mm.
