yes i did. I'm using the Kenko Teleplus Pro 300 2x TC and it works beautifully. VR works but AF did slow down a little but still fast enough. My TC is grey in colour so is my 70-200 AF-S VR lense. Cheers :cool:

The Kenko 1.4x also work without problem except that it does not report the aperture correctly.

if i m not wrong, MC7 only works with non-AFS lenses. for AFS lens, u need the kenko teleplus pro 300.

Nightpiper is correct. You need the Kenko Teleplus Pro 300 series which states N AF-S on the convertor. The MC-7 is the consumer series. Only Nikon's own TCs will allow the camera to display the correct effective aperture.

Really? Which series TC with which lens and which body? I have a Kenko Teleplus Pro 300 2X and uses them with a AF-D 105/2.8 Micro-Nikkor and AF 180/2.8 coupled to a F100 and F75, and it does not report the effective aperture...... :dunno:
