I can't believe it! On April 23rd I owned a CP8700 and an Old Desktop Computer with a Little Lexmark Printer.
I decided to take the leap (or Plunge) and go dSLR.

Today.. D70+Kit, 24-120 VR, 70-200 VR, 70-300 ED, SB-800, Wolverine 20 GB, New Desktop w/flat panel, New Wide Screen Laptop, 2- Canon Printers (S9000 & pixma ip1500), Bags for Everything, Hard cases, 2 1gb Lxr 80x, 1- Sandisk 512, ML-L3 remote, Filters, etc, etc and a New CP5600, and took two Nikon Classes.
Now for some reason my bank say's I don't have any money left!!

So my Question is, is theyre a teleconverter comparable to the TCe14II for less money that will still work well with my VR's?????????
Or a decent price on the TCe14II ??

The newest versions of the KENKO Pro 300 1.4x and 2x are excellent. AF and VR will continue to work with these extenders. Also, there are no protrusions, so they will fit on virtually any Nikon mt lens, unlike many of the nikon extenders.

At about 3/4 the price of the Nikon's, do you think that is the best choice?

Will the 2x still allow for AF-S, and Vr capabilties?

Both 1.4x and 2x work with AF and VR. I normally have bought such items used, but see that the new price is about $150 on ebay, which I suspect is much less than 3/4 the Nikon price.

If you buy kenko, make sure it is one of the newer light grey models that says N-AFs on the side. The earlier models did not work with AFS lenses. The advantage of the kenko over the nikons is that they will AF with bothAFD and AFS lenses, and will support VR with VR lenses. They will also fit virtually any nikon mt lens since they have no protrusions like some of the nikon teleconverters.
