I am not sure about 1.7x TC but I am able to do 105 VR + TC20eiii. Can AF but IQ wide open sucks IMHO.

Hi shelomoh, I heard that III version IQ is much better than II. You meant 105 VR + TC 20E III IQ is still bad?

Is the above combo possible? Was told that it is possible only if i add extension tube to it. Is it true?
If you are referring to TC17 II, it works with AFS 105 VR.

It's passable on D700 but sharper if you decrease the aperture a bit. On D300, the IQ is even worse. I mean don't expect the kind of quality as without the TC. I like the bokeh on 105 VR but with the TC, the bokeh now doesn't look as good as before.

Just to understand clearer...are you comparing both set at f5.6, with TC the Bokeh is much worst than without.
As 2x TC will give you f5.6 at the widest. If possible, can you post the two pix for us to see. Thank you.
