Agreed with Clive, the Kenko Pro 300 2x works well. I've tried it on both the 2-touch (tripod collar) and 1-touch ED versions.

Heck, I've even put that TC on a Sigma 170-500, f/5-6.3 ! And believe it or not, it does AF, though veerrrryyyy ssllloooowwwwllllyyy :) ... faster to put it on MF and do the focussing myself. On this combination, on the long end, you get 1500mm on a DSLR body ...

The Kenko Pro 300 1.4x and 2x would work. A friend was using the 2x yesterday with the Nikon 80-200 F2.8.

Popular opinion at www.nikonians.com seems to be that the Tamron and Kenko teleconvertors are the same thing under different packaging. The Tamron one is more expensive than the Kenko at B&H though... so I'm not sure if we are paying for the name or for a different teleconvertor.

not sure if this info here helps with wat's being discussed, here's a quote from this website :
http://www.nikonlinks.com/lenstest.html

"Note the Tamron PRO converters are identical to the Kenko Pro 300 converters. They are the same product, with a different label. These new converters can be identified by the markings SPAF (Tamron) or "Pro"(Kenko) on the case. All comments here about the Tamron converter, will apply equally to the corresponding Kenko item."
