The Nikon TC-14E II Teleconverter has been updated to match with AF-S type lenses, and will maintain full metering and focusing with compatible cameras and lenses. This converter will increase the focal length of the lens by 1.4x, and reduces the lens aperture by one f/stop.
Note! Autofocusing only possible when used with D1, D1X, D1H, D100, F5, F100, N90s, N80, N75, N65 AF SLR cameras, or any newer models.
Due to the high-quality design of this converter (5 elements/5 groups), the teleconverter will only fit and work with a select range of lenses. Only the following lenses are compatible:
It is possible to utilize the current set of TC's, 14/17/20, with non-AFS lenses via This Modification.
The problem with these TC's and some of the non-AFS lenses is that the rear element of the lens may move rearward, which will then contact the protruding front element of the TC causing damage to the lens, the TC or both. The 3rd party TC's, Sigma and Kenko for example, do not have a protruding front element, but in some cases they will not correctly report the multiplied focal length to the EXIF, but all the metering and lens functions work as expected.
