Re: 500pf with Kenko1.4x Teleplus HD DGX Teleconverter

I'm still waiting on my Nikon but I tried my Kenko (the older 300 model).  I was surprised that it wasn't as terrible with the PF as it was with every other lens I tried, but I still don't think I could rationalize using it.  I compared some photos side-by-side and besides the difference in sharpness, there were other significant differences in CA, contrast, and overall accuracy of colors.  Some of that could be fixed in post-processing, but overall the results didn't impress me.  If I didn't have the Nikon TC coming, I'd probably mess around with the Kenko some more just to see if I could find use for it, but I'd rather focus on getting the most out of the bare lens before the Nikon TC arrives.
