    very impressed with my new lens that got delivered today these are the first photos taken with it and as you can see they are razor sharp i would recommend this lens to any Nikon user these photos were taken at F2.8

    Seems to be nicely focused as well - what more can you want! A little less weight?

    As Malcolm says, it's a beast! I would second the OP's comments and add that there is little to challenge the quality (and nothing short of a gorilla to challenge the weight!) of the Nikon triple - 14-24; 24-70; 70-200 (all f2.8, all brilliant). I have the set now, and they are easily the best set of lenses I've ever owned for my Nikons.

    Yes what a great lens locks on the focus straight away as sharp as a razor but a big price tag to go with it.
    Does anyone own a nikon teleconverter, might be my next item on my list just want a little feedback before I go paying any more money out.
    Also had the 24 70 f2.8 delivered last week what an out standing lens that one is.

    I use a Nikon x2 converter in tandem with my 300mm f2.8 VRII. Apart from the fact that it restricts me to f5.6 (which is a bit of a pain on a dull day), I have no complaints about the results I am getting. I would think twice about using it on a zoom, though. I have had it on my 70-200mm VRII and found it a fraction more recalcitrant in handling, although acceptable as long as I use manual focus. I suppose it depends on what you need the extra length for.

    I promise I'm not being a copy cat! I have the TC20e III (The new aspherical one) and have used it on both my 300mm f2.8 (VRII) and 70-200 VR II. To be honest, there is a tiny (and I do mean tiny) impact on ultimate AF speed, but that's about it. I use the 20e on the zoom when I feel weak and feeble, not wanting to lug the 300! That gives me a very nice 140-400 at less than half the price of the 200-400 lens (albeit at the cost of another stop). No particular loss in quality to my eyes, so I would recommend the set up.
    I also have the TC17e and that can be a real bonus as you don't lose quite as much light if ultimate reach is not the issue.
    Sounds like you are putting together a great set of glass.
    Enjoy:cool:
