    Default 1.4x, 1.5x or 2x ??

    I am using a nikon 80-200 mm f 2.8 now and will like to have extend the focal length to shoot some sport .

    Understand it will increase the f-stop by a stop a and soften the pic quality .

    Anyone can recommanded me and shar their experience ?

    is nikon or kenko better?? budget may be a concern to me ......should i get 1.4, 1.5 or 2x????.....hehehe

    I am quite sure that the nikon Teleconvertors which I think you are refering to are much better.

    I believe it's more of the front element of the TC. It protrudes quite a bit...

    Get the Kenko in your case...
