Question

May I use teleconverter with this lens?

I've seen a AF-S Teleconverter Compatibility but the list is old and must be updated, because there are many new lens lauched lately.
Could you send us an updated AF-S Teleconverter Compability?

Question

is the Nikkor 200mm f/2G VR II worth the money

I presently own the D7000 base and use a Nikkor 70-200 f/2.8 VR II. I take a lot of under the lights action photos (soccer) and cant get enough light in the camera without increasing the ISO to a ridiculous number creating too much grain. Will upgrading to this lens give me the light that i need to get clear night action shots?

i would definitely invest in a body more appropriate to what you're shooting. at 16.2mp on a DX sensor, your pixels are so small that you're going to be dealing with higher levels of noise. also you're image is cropped and you're not getting the full realization of this lens, rather only using the data in the middle of it since it is an FX lens, upside is you're getting effectively a 300mm zoom out of a 300mm lens.

I would go D3 or D3s used and take advantage of the much higher ISO you can achieve with the larger pixels on a larger sensor. upgrading to this lens will give you a little more leeway light wise, but shooting at f2 isn't always advisable because the DOF is extremely thin, and if the action gets close to you, certain elements of it may be out of focus. We dont even shoot candids at f2.8 from less than 50 ffet away because we demand razor sharp images. our min is 3.2 for anything between 25 to 50ft distance. under 25ft it is 3.5-4.

For action objects more than 75feet away I shoot this lens at f2 on my D3 and it is superb, but so would be the 70-200f2.8. To me I prefer not to drop down to f2 and risk it with close action but a lot of people do.

this lens really shines for me when it comes to swimsuit modeling on the beach where both me and the model are at a fixed distance and i can drop it to f2 and melt the background away. I have always thought of this as the world's top portrait lens, NOT a sports lens, but thats NOT to say most people don't use it for sports. just my opinion.

Question

The lens is 4.9" in diameter and yet takes a 52mm screw on filter. Does this screw onto the back, somehow?

Question

The Amazon website for this lens has a compatibility chart that says that this lens is NOT compatible with the Nikon D300S DSLR. Is that true?
