NikonNikon AF-S Teleconverter TC-20E III : Nikon Europe is launching the new AF-S Teleconverter TC-20E III, the world's first teleconverter with an Aspherical lens element. With a completely new optical design it is designed to offer class leading image quality for wildlife and sports photography in a compact form factor. Zurab Kiknadze, Product Manager for Lenses, Accessories & Software, Nikon Europe says: "For many photographers using a 2x teleconverter has meant sacrificing image quality for practicality." He adds, "The ground breaking optics in the new Nikon Teleconverter are designed to offer photographers great images when they need to extend the reach of their NIKKOR telephoto lenses.

What are teleconvertors?
Teleconvertors are attached between the camera body and telephoto lens to multiply focal length without affecting closest focusing distance. This magnification factor comes at the cost of reduced light transmission which reduces the effective minimum aperture of the lens in use. The Nikon Teleconverter TC-20E III reduces aperture by two stops. So when attached to an f/2 aperture lens (such as the Nikon AF-S VR 200mm f/2G) the minimum aperture becomes f/4. The Nikon Teleconverter will begin shipping in January 2010 for an estimated price of $489,00 USD.
