The Nikon TC-17E II 1.7x Teleconverter for AF-S and AF-I Lenses
was designed exclusively for use with AF-S and AF-I lenses, and
completes the Nikon lineup of 1.4x, 1.7x, and 2.0x compact
teleconverters. This teleconverter will maintain full metering and
focusing with compatible cameras and lenses, and will also support the
VR function found on many of the newer professional lenses.
The AF-S Teleconverter TC-17E II allows focal length to be
extended by a factor of 1.7 times while retaining a sense of overall
comfort in the hand. Many such teleconverters can also have a
detrimental effect on the speed of the lens, however the AF-S
Teleconverter TC-17E II makes available f-stops only 1.5 stops slower.
NOTE: Autofocusing only possible when used with D1, D1X, D1H, D2H, D100, F5, F100, N90s, N80, N75 and N65 AF SLR Cameras (or any newer models).
