Thanks everyone for the kind comments!

Buzzsaw, I leave the nikor 1.4x e II TC on my D200 all the time. I find zero degradation in optical performace(IMO) with it on my 300mm F4 lens. You do give up 1.5 stops but I really don't notice it much as I tend to shoot in bright light or use fill flash. Another bonus with leaving the TC on the camera is you don't have to expose the sensor to dust everytime you change lenses. :idea:

Unfortunatly my 80-400 VR will not work with the 1.4x e II so I've retired it to my D70s which I still love and use when I want a lighter setup on long walks and hikes.

Thanks Kent... I was curious. I also use a D200 with mainly the 80-400mm and have a 1.4 TC as well (Tamron) and it works but really slows down the camera focusing... to the point where I only use it for those far away non moving targets. I try to shoot everything in F8 or F7.1 if possible.
