Now that I got the new lens, I am going to need a TC for it. What TC will I
need for the AF to work?
I use the Nikon TC14E II with my 300/4 all the time and don't have any trouble with the AF.
According to Nikon, the TC17 and TC2 won't work with the 300/4. That's because the min aperture drops below f5.6. I haven't tried using them, but I think they will still work, but the AF performance will be reduced a good bit. They should work fine in bright light, but you will probably have trouble when the sun starts to go down.
Which version is it? If it´s an AF-S then Nikon TCs work... if older AF model you´ll need a third party TC, for example Kenko pro 300...
I use both the Kenko 1.4 and the Nikon 1.7 with no problems at all. It just focuses a little slower.
My lense is a AF-S. Will Kenko or Nikon both work ?
Yes, same as mine.
I've had very good results with the Nikkor TC14 and my 300/f4
I have used and got good results with my Kenko 1.4 Teleplus 300 DG.
Exif lens data also reflects it being 420mm.
Here is an example.
Another vote for the TC14E II
Here's a sample of the 300 f/4 with a Nikon TC-17E
