I bought the Nikon TC-14E to extend my Nikkor 70-200mm f4. This lens is very sharp, producing quality images at 100% crop when mounted to my 36mpx D810, but I wanted a bit more reach. Before I bought, I read several online reviews which suggested the TC-14E III softens the image somewhat. I take online reviews with a grain of salt until I test in real-life conditions. To test the TC-14E, I set up a Siemens star target outdoors at a distance of 75 feet, a comparable real-life distance for my wildlife shots. With my camera mounted to a stable tripod, with VR off, I compared the sharpest picture at 200mm, with the sharpest using the TC-14E at 280mm (1.4X). I find the TC-14E does an excellent job increasing the reach of the lens, with very minimal image degradation. In fact, when you compare details from the actual (unsharpened) photographs below at 500% magnification, you only see negligible difference at maximum resolution (blue), only slightly less contrast within that green circle. Moreover, this detail is still good; a slight sharpening will remove the discrepancies in contrast and detail. I consider the Nikon TC-14E a bargain for what it does: extends the reach of an already sharp lens close to a 300mm. The results are really excellent in terms of detail and contrast, with minimal chromatic aberration.
I use this product to boost the reach of my 70-200 2.8 VR II to more closely capture near-shore surfers and other subjects. It's compact, light and offers a decent boost in reach with imperceptible sharpness loss for my camera type. I can't think of anything negative to say about it- There are compromises when using a teleconverter. With this product, those compromises are minimal.
