Me on the Ready
Nikon D2X with 300mm f2.8 AF-S lens
in my hands and ready to shoot. Proper
photo technique would be that I have
my eye to the Nikon's viewfinder.
I am so full of myself, I made the self image
with a D300 on self timer. What ego!? Geeeez
Left is my 200-400 f4 AF-S VR, other is the D810 camera,
TC20EIII and 300 f2.8 AF-S lens. Exciting, except the TC..

I used the D700 and 105 f2.8 AF-S VR NanoCrystalCoated micro lens for this image
2 of Nikon's Finest
Left is the 24-70 f2.8 AF-S NanoCrystalCoated
Right is the 14-24 f2.8 AF-S NanoCrystalCoated
I can say nothing but very good things about this pair
of lenses. The front cap in photo is for the right
side lens, and it should be improved. It's a slip
fit hard plastic setup that's not on par with the
awesome lens it protects. These 2 lenses along with
the 70-200 f2.8 AF-S VR are my most used lenses.

On this image I used the TC20EII and the TC14EII stacked,
then connected to the 300mm F2.8 AF-S lens.
To stack Nikon converters I cut the small tab off the 1.4,
which is a block to keep us from mounting our converters
on non AF-S lenses. After removing that metal tab, I can
place the unaltered 2X on the altered 1.4, making a total
of 2.4X. The 300mm becomes roughly a 840mm f6.3
The Nikon D2X seems to focus this combo very well.
Also, my 500mm F4 AF-I locks on focus using this stack,
however my 400 F2.8 AF-S refuses to focus,
it hunts for focus and will not lock on. Some suggest
the altered converters will work on non AF-S lenses,
but none of mine will. Also, the altered 1.4 will not work
on the new TC17EII converter. Don't try it! The rear element of
the 17 will be damages as it protrudes out and will suffer damage.

I Was Bored, in my studio
I made near eye contact with my D1X
which was on it's self timer. A local
camera shop ask for a photo of me with
a couple of my bigger lenses. I supplied
this photo but he never displayed it.
I am leaning on my 500 F4 lens and F5 film camera,
the 400 F2.8 is below mounted to the D1H body.

I am trying to mount a Nikon 300 f2.8 AF-S lens
on an old Kodak Hawk-Eye Brownie?
