70-200VR + TC14E II Tests

Jul 9, 2008
Eastern Ontario
I tested the lens at 200mm (280 mm with the teleconverter) for those who may be interested in this combination:


Tests are done with D300 mounted on a tripod, Picture Control is set to Standard with Sharpness set back to 0 in Capture NX Base Adjustment (no sharpening). I used MLU and a remote release cord to ensure maximum stability.

The Web version of the pictures (in 1024by680) look pretty sharp between f5.6-f22, f4 being a little dreamy. 100% crops show a very good resolution between f8-f16. It is to be noted that the Web and 100% crop pix would look a lot sharper if Sharpening is selected or Unsharp Mask/High Pass is applied in PP.
