I'm considering buying a Nikkor AF-S 70-200mm f/2.8G. The only thing I wish, is the zoom was longer. I find myself in positions where I need just a little more reach. I've used a 70-300mm, but with it being f/4.5-5.6, I found it just doesn't work for the wildlife photography I want to do (can't get the faster shutter speeds I need in lower light). Plus, I want the better image quality of the 70-200. Sooooo, I've been looking at teleconverters. I've read that you lose about 1 stop of light with the 1.4x, and 2 stops with the 2x. I'm guessing the 1.7x falls in the middle there... But still preserve the features like AF, VR, ect. Ok, so I lose light, I get that and can live with it (especially since it will still be f/3.5ish at max zoom, I think), but what about the image quality? Would I lose any sharpness and be wasting the $2000 quality of the lens if I were attaching it to a teleconverter? :raisedbrow: Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. If anyone has photos taken with this, or similar, setup I'd love to see them if you can post 'em. Thanks in advance!
