Hi, i'm getting confused with kenko TC 1.4 "DG" and "DGX". What is the different between DGX and DG????? i heard DG won't work with tokina 10-17mm in D90. it is true????

So on D7000 which one to go, can i use "DG",

Both will work with the Tokina 10-17mm. I use the DGX on a D90 and the only difference from the DG is the DGX has
a slight upgrade that allows it to give the correct exif data to some of the newer camera bodies. It was released prior
to the D7000 so I doubt that this nominal benefit will operate on that body. If that is the case then the DG would be
your best and cheaper option. The optics are the same from what I understand.

Cheers,
Jim.

I've just bought a Kenko teleplus pro 300 1.4x dgx. Tried Tokina 10-17 w the teleconverter w d7000. It's works w aperture and correct focal length recorded in nikon exif data.

Found a compatibility list here. I just felt auto focus is ok fast w d7000

Hi, i asked the producer at the Photokina - Trade fair in Germany.

The man told me that the different is the quality. The DGX Version has better lenses and materials.
