    Can anybody guide me how good Soligor 2x Teleconverter is for Nikon AF
    lenses? I have 28-80mm and 80-300mm G lense for which I am thinking of
    buying Soligor 2x teleconverter that I found on ebay.

    Please guide. I am on short budget and I don't have any clue on
    Soligor TC.

    Soligor is a cheap converter. Using any converter on consumer
    type zoom lenses will degrade quality so much as to be
    worthless.

  3. I don't have any experience with those particular lenses and personally
    I am generally not all that critical, but I would be very suspect of using
    even a very good teleconverter with a zoom lens. Generally zoom lenses
    don't have the ability to stand up to the additional demands when using a
    converter. BTW my experience with Soligor converters is that they are far
    from the best. The ones Nikon sold were much better and much more
    expensive.

    not worth more than $10
    unfortunately most of the third party teleconverters are truly bad

    if you really want one, save up for the Nikon, better yet .... save some
    more for the Nikkor 80 - 400 VR
