can someone help explain to me the difference between the Nikon AF-I Teleconverter TC-20E and the AF-S Teleconverter TC-20E II? from what i read of the specs, there's no difference except that the AF-S has the new Front Cap BF-3A (which can be used as body cap),which is no big deal...

i'm sure there's a difference, otherwise why would Nikon come up with 2 products which does the same thing? :dunno:

thanks in advance!!! :D

Optically they are identical, the only difference is in the cosmetics and new cap, however the E series are considerably cheaper.

There is no difference aside from the body cap and that they were made to follow the new cosmetic design of the newer AF-S lenses. In terms of cost, the AF-S II converters actually list at a lower price than the original converters.

TC-14E and E-II <-- E series as there are also TC-14, TC-14A, TC-14B and TC-14C teleconverters that have been produced over the years. Of the E series the E-II's are as Jed has pointed out identical in optical construction but with a lower list price and a different front cap.
