Overview: The AF-S Teleconverter TC-14 III is a precision optical
accessory that mounts between the camera body and the lens. It has a 1.4x optical
conversion factor, increases the focal length of select compatible
Nikkor lenses by 40%. It is ideal for sports photography, wildlife photography,
surveillance, and more. You can use the teleconverter without sacrificing image
quality, autofocus accuracy, metering, or VR image stabilization, and only a
1-stop loss of light. The TC-14 III has the standard Nikon F-bayonet mount,
and is compatible with FX, DX, FX in DX crop mode, and 35mm film formats. A list
of compatible lenses can be found below.
Fluorine Coating: The TC-14 III has fluorine
coatings on the front and rear surfaces which repel dirt and water droplets for
clear views and easy removal.
Autofocus: The TC-14 III allows auto focusing with most compatible
AF-S lenses, many with manual or auto priority. With some compatible lenses, though, auto focusing is not possible.
Focus assist may also be available in most situations.
Lens Construction: The teleconverter has 7 lens elements in
4 groups, including elements with fluorine coatings. It is optimized for use with FX and
DX digital SLRs.
Exposure: The use of this teleconverter decreases the
effective aperture of the attached lens by one stop.
