    From last weekend, using a monopod, for those wanting more reach from the 80-200:

    Along with my 12-24, this lens is in my light travel kit, it always amazes me at what it can do. The KenkoPro 1.4 is a very nice match. When I've used it on my 300 and compared it to the TCE, I really don't see any difference.

    were these shot wide open?
     
  3. Nice shots Jeff...
    I love the 80-200(2R) + 1.4x TC combo...
    Great IQ and still sharp even wide open at 200mm...

    Anyone try the 80-200 with a 2x TC?

    I was @ 4.5, really bright day, some could very as I was doing 4 stop comps.
     

  6. Yup, it looks like crap IMO. Very soft and lots of CA if shooting wide open. Its better at f/6.3 and decent by f/7.1

    D300, 80-200 AF-S and Nikon 2.0 TC
    1/1250s f/5.6 (wide open), 330mm (495mm fx)

    I have with the 2R and the Kenko Pro 2.0 and had decent results at the track. It even autofocused. The Kenko did not work well with the AFS version that I tried.
