Below is the MTF chart of the lens when used with the Nikon Z 70-200mm f/2.8 S lens:
Do we have further filed test from the staff to share?
This teleconverter will not work (because it doesn’t fit) with the Z 24-200. Why Nikon doesn’t come out and specifically say this I do not know. I specifically asked Nikon USA whether it was compatible with the Z 24-200 and they said yes. I pointed out that their marketing literature only mentions the 70-200 and they still said it was compatible with the 24-200. I borrowed one to check it out before buying and was very disappointed to discover that Nikon support personnel were wrong.
They do say it’s only compatible with the 70-200 z
You are correct. I bought a TC-2.0 thinking it would work with my Z 100-400mm but it doesn’t. It also doesn’t work with any F mount lenses (FTZII) either. Since I don’t (yet) own a 70-200mm Z lens, it’s worthless and sitting on my shelf.
I have now acquired a Z TC 2.0 to use with a Z100 – 400mm.
At 800mm it is F11 and in the light I have to deal with, can require a ISO of 6400 to work at 1/1000s.
I have seen images that have been captured in similar light to which I will work in, and feel confident there will be very good IQ for images captured, when I am using the equipment in a adequate method.
