Nikon 105mm + Nikon 2X telekonverter with D800

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

 

Does anyone know if Nikon 105mm + Nikon 2X telekonverter with D800 works with autofocus?

I shot this combo in the Red Sea in June and I was pleased with it. I posted some pictures at the time.

 

But I'd only use the best lenses and teleconverters (Nikon 105mm AF-S and Nikon 2.0x III AF-S). Others will work but will be a waste of a D800.

no problem at all

It's odd, isn't it? Nikon says that the combination doesn't work, but (at least on the recent top-end bodies) it does...

Regardless, It is going to be a handfull in the water though Tim.

 

The AF on my D800 is better than the D300 but in the water I find the 105/D300 bad enough - chuck in a load more mag and what, one and a half or two stops of light loss ?

 

Alex could make a box brownie work in the water so don't take any notice of him.

I've used a +5D lens on the 105mm, but, I agree, using a 2x TC is a bit, err, specialised...

You would be getting to close to your object with a 60mm and a 2x converter.
