Nikon TC-17E-II AF Tele-Converter 1.7x
The first teleconverter to offer a 1.7x lens focal length magnification, but with exposure compensation kept to just 1.5 stops. Designed exclusively for use with AF-S and AF-I Nikkor lenses, the AF-S Teleconverter TC-17E II extends the Nikon teleconverter line-up to three teleconverters offering a choice of 1.4x, 1.7x, and 2.0x focal length magnification factors.
With dimensions of just 66 x 31.5mm (2.6 x 1.2 in.) and a weight of only 250g (approx.) the AF-S Teleconverter TC-17E II is compact and lightweight to use. Attached to a camera body, for example, with the latest AF-S VR Nikkor 200mm f/2G IF-ED lens, the combination of lens and teleconverter offers the photographer an impressive focal length of 340mm with a maximum aperture of just f/3.3. On all of Nikon’s digital SLRs an approximate 135-picture angle equivalent to 510mm is possible, whilst maintaining the same maximum aperture of f/3.3.
The AF-S Teleconverter TC-17E II also has the ability to communicate with the signals from most lenses. Furthermore, it is fully compatible with Nikon’s exclusive Vibration Reduction (VR), incorporates glass elements that conform to forthcoming environmental standards and is housed in a design that is consistent with the current TC-14E II and TC-20E II.
NOTE: Due to the high-quality design of this converter (7 elements/4 groups), the teleconverter will only fit and work with a select range of lenses, but with limitations. Only the following lenses are compatible:
