    Hi folks,

    I love my Nikkor 80-200mm f/2.8D ED AF zoom
    ( that I
    picked up second-hand a few years ago.

    I'd like to use a teleconverter with it, such as the Nikkor TC-14E II
    (, but it
    APPEARS that this (and the other current Nikkor teleconverters) only work
    with AF-S and AF-I lenses.

    Can anyone actually confirm that I can't use a current Nikkor teleconverter
    with my zoom lens?

    If I can't use these ones, will any older Nikkors work? If so, do they suck?

    Thanks so much.

  2. Without modifying the teleconverter, the combination doesn't work. Even
    with modification, you lose autofocus capability.
    Here's a chart of what works and with what caveats. Personally I use
    a either a Kenko Pro 1.4x DG, which retains AF, and on rare occasion
    an 1980's era Tokina 7-element 2x, which does not. Teleconverter Table.pdf
