Hello everyone
I'd like to use a teleconverter (1,4x or 1,7x) with Nikon 105mm and D800. I have to choose between the Nikon and the Kenko TC... Any suggestion? The cost difference is justified? There is a big difference in image quality or AF speed?Thanks

I use the Nikon 1.7x AFS with the 105mm and it is a different world from a Kenko in AF speed and image quality. But it is a TC that I own primarily for use with topside telephotos.
