Nikon Announces the New 1.4x AF-S Teleconverter TC-14E III

Nikon has announced the new AF-S Teleconverter TC-14E III. The 1.4x teleconverter features revised optics, with a 7 element, 4 group construction.

The 1.4x AF-S Teleconverter TC-14E III increases the reach of compatible AF-S NIKKOR lenses like the AF-S NIKKOR 400mm f/2.8E FL ED VR or the AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR without sacrificing image quality, autofocus accuracy, metering or even VR image stabilization. The lens barrel has also been redesigned for increased moisture and dust resistance.

Optimized for sports, action, wildlife and press photographers, the AF-S Teleconverter TC-14E III works with many Nikon lenses to effectively multiply the focal length by 1.4x, with a resultant one-stop decrease in maximum aperture.. 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.

AF-S Teleconverter TC-14E III Features

Nikon’s long legacy and expertise in optical engineering is substantiated with this new 1.4x teleconverter that retains the lens’ image quality, even at wide-open apertures. This new teleconverter effectively multiplies the focal length of many NIKKOR lenses by 1.4x, while resulting in only a one-stop loss of exposure. Especially useful for nature and sports photographers, the enhanced optical system reduces chromatic lens aberration, while preserving the accuracy of the AF system.

The construction of the teleconverter has been significantly upgraded for both durability and optical brilliance. Comprised of seven elements within four groups, the outer elements feature a fluorine coating for enhanced resistance to dirt and water droplets. For added durability, the lens barrel has been designed for increased moisture and dust resistance.
