Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very satisfied with TC-20EIII I recently rented the TC-20 for use on a European vacation. It was paired with my AF-S 70-200 f/2.8 VR1 on a D810 and I was quite impressed with the overall quality of the images. Most were taken hand-held;others taken on a sturdy Gitzo. My expectation was properly set after doing a lot research and reading many accounts of the TC's use in the Nikonians website forum. As expected, there was a little softness on the edges, but the overall images were very good. A little cropping took care of the soft edges. Taking into account the known minor shortcomings of teleconverters (soft edges, loss of light), I was very satisfied with the TC 20's performance, so much so that I purchased the TC from the rental company after my return from vacation.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nikon 70-200 VR II + TC-20E III I am a Nikon lover but I never got convincing results while using the TC-20E III on my Nikon 70-200 VRII, the images aren't sharp enough for me (at any apertures, mirror up, remote shutter, steady tripod, manual focusing on live view etc.). It must be a better fit on a 300mm or 400mm 2.8, if you really have to get this extra length. Otherwise, always better to get a 500mm or 600mm indeed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Offers quality plus versatility Had a chance to test this TC on my 70-200mm f/2.8 VR II. Then bought a refurb and thrilled with results. Tested vs. (old model) 80-400mm f/4-5.6. At the same apertures, the TC + 70-200 tested better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SUPERB! The only people who have had a problem with this product have not paired it with the right lenses. ((( This TC Converter is designed for fast f/2.8 lenses. ))) I have two Nikon cameras (D810 and D500) and this 2x TC III doubles my reach and keeps the quality extremely high. Between the two cameras, and the TC on (or off) my 300mm, I have variable focal lengths of 300mm, 450mm, 600mm, and 900mm, with the last two extreme focal lengths made possible by the 2x TC III. The difference in quality is negligible. A picture is worth 1000 words, so I will end this review, with some images taken with the TC on.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Useful when you need that extra reach - but know your trade-offs. There's no such thing as a free lunch and that is totally true of teleconverters. Any time you put extra glass between the lens and the sensor there will be loss some loss in contrast and sharpness. On top of that you will lose 2 full F-stops of light! Still, the Nikon TC20 E-III does an admirable job delivering twice the original focal length - if your expectations are realistic! I'll let the sample image speak for itself: it was taken with a Nikon D810 (in DX crop mode) with Nikkor 70-200 F4 G + TC20 E-III = an effective focal length/aperture of 600mm @ F8. Hand-held with VR and ISO 4500. I personally think it turned out pretty good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just a wonderful addition to my camera bag I shot the foto, below, of the moon mid day, useing my Nikon D800 and my Nikon 70-200 VR 2.8 Series 1 lens, and useing the AF_STC20E 111 Tele Converter, the results truly are stellar.......

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor image quality I recently purchased the TC 20E III along with the Nikon 300mm f/2.8 VR II. During the six months I owned it, I had little opportunity to use this equipment. During the few times that I did make some test images, I could detect NO additional detail in pictures taken with the 300mm alone and in combination with the TC. A few days ago, after also adding the TC 14E II and the Nikon 70-200mm VR II, I was able to spend many hours shooting ducks with all possible combinations of these two lenses and these two tele-converters. The result is that I am very disappointed in the quality of my 2.0 converter. The 1.4 TC clearly added more fine detail of the birds’ feathers to photos of the birds taken with both top notch lenses without TC’s attached. The images taken using the 2.0 showed LESS detail than the 1.4 and perhaps less than the lenses without any TC attached. This is the first Nikon product I have ever owned which has required repair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BUY IT ! Purchased a refurbished sample from my favorite store in NYC. Excellent teleconverter for 70-200 f/2.8 G lens, at least when paired with my D3s. Extremely sharp and fast focusing. I have even gotten good results in the 1.2x format (480 mm) and DX setting (600 mm) hand held but typically use with a monopod or tripod for best results.
