    Anybody tried this? I want a lens with some reach and my 80-200mm(which I love btw) just is not cutting anymore. Will the VR still work with a TC? Uncle Frank can you hear me?
     
  2. It will fit, but will not produce very good quality. The 70-300VR is a great lens, on its own, but with a TC it goes to an f8 lens at 300,which is waaaaay too slow, plus the quality will be way down.

    Are we allowed to link to other forums? Never mind if not (sorry mods, delete away), but if we are, here a 2xTC with sigma 120-300, and while they're not lens lust sharp, the TC does the job it was asked to do.
