Nikon 300mm f2.8 VRII with TC-20EIII & TC-17EII Teleconverters – Sample Photos (Bad Lighting)

Nikon 300mm f2.8 VRII with TC-20EIII & TC-17EII Teleconverters – Sample Photos

WOW!!! I am very impressed with the results of the new Nikon TC-20EIII in combination with the Nikon 300mm f2.8 VRII (using Nikon D300).  Truly outstanding in my opinion..enough to give me goose bumps!  I actually think the overall results with this combination were better than that of the Nikon TC-17EII teleconverter.  The color, contrast, and sharpness was great with the TC-20EIII and autofocus worked just fine.  I call these my “bad lighting” shots since they were taken inside my house.  Though I did use a tripod, my wireless shutter release is out of batteries and thus the smaller apertures might show a bit of blur from lens motion when the shutter was depressed.  I shot in groups of 3 photos at continuous release and usually selected the final photo in each series. 

In addition to working very well with a teleconverter, the Nikon 300mm f2.8 VRII really impressed me with what it could do wide open at f2.8.  Results were very sharp in the center of focus at 2.8 and above.  But don’t take my word on it, look for yourself below.  Click on the photos to see at 100%.
