    Anybody use one? How do you like it? I'm interested in getting a 2x converter for my Nikon 55-300mm lens and D3300 camera, but am having trouble finding a Nikon.

    Nikon just informed me that none of their teleconverters are compatible with DX lenses.

    Even it was compatible I don't believe you would be able to use auto focus. Even if it did, your images would be extremely soft.

    Yep, I'm hearing there are problems with auto focus but I'm ok with just using manual focus. I would hope the images would be as sharp as they were when using a 2x back in the film days.
