Optimized for sports, action, wildlife and press photographers, the Nikon AF-S TC-14E III Teleconverter achieves superb 1.4x enlargement with only a 1-stop loss of light. Fluorine coatings protect the front and rear surfaces and a durable lens barrel with water-drop resistance ensures the AF-S Teleconverter TC-14E III can hold up to professional use.

Turn the AF-S Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR into a 98-280mm f/4 lens or the AF-S Nikkor 400mm f/2.8E FL ED VR into a 560mm f/4 lens.

Maintain peak performance
Superb image quality, AF accuracy and more

The AF-S Teleconverter TC-14E III features an optical design that draws peak performance from compatible AF-S Nikkor lenses, including fast primes and zoom lenses. Enjoy stunning depiction-nearly the same image quality that a lens alone produces-outstanding autofocus accuracy, full metering performance and even VR image stabilization.

Ready for tough conditions
Rugged design repels dirt and water droplets

If you shoot sports, action or wildlife, you know landing great shots sometimes means getting dirty. The AF-S Teleconverter TC-14E III is designed to be as rugged as the lenses it modifies. Fluorine coatings on the front and rear surfaces repel dirt and water droplets for clear views and easy removal and the durable lens barrel also provides dust- and water-droplet resistance.

Nikon TC-14E III Reviews

Improves reach 40% great image quality


from Seattle, WA

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.


Great product


from Orange County, CA  -  Photo Enthusiast

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.

Questions about this item:

Chris G  the nikon 300mm f/4 and 200mm f/4 lenses are not listed. Is this teleconverter compatible with either of these lenses as its predecessor was? thanks
JEFFREY M  I would think the converter would work with your 2 lenses mentioned, but DON'T take my word for it. I'd recommend that you contact Nikon Tech Support directly with your question. It is a good one. When I purchased this teleconverter recently, I was under the impression that it would work like the old 1.4X did (meaning before auto focus, exposure, etc.) in that it would work with just about any lenses I owned at the time (way before I got into zooms.) I guess I was spoiled….. and I didn't do my homework well enough, because it doesn't couple to any of the zoom lenses I use most - 18-200mmVR, 55-300mmVR, or even my very old 500mm fixed. A disappointing conclusion. Today, I use zooms about 98% for my shooting, because I just don't want to carry an arsenal of fixed focal length lenses AND the weight on my back as I did in my youth (now aged 64.) So I returned it to Adorama unused, and they quickly credited my charge card. So, Nikon's DX crop will have to do for my magnification boost….. its worked well up to now, and that's a very good reason why I don't use full frame cameras!
Shopper  Is this teleconverter compatible with the Nikon D5100?
TIM F  I don't know if it is compatible with the D5100. I used it with D90 and DF bodies and a AF Nikkor 70-200 f/4G ED VR lens and it worked well.
