Press Release:

Nikon UK is launching the new Nikon AF-S Teleconverter TC-20E III, the world’s first teleconverter with an aspherical lens element. With a completely new optical design, the compact new teleconverter offers class leading image quality for wildlife and sports photography.

Zurab Kiknadze, Product Manager for Lenses, Accessories and Software, Nikon Europe says: “The ground breaking optics in the new Nikon AF-S Teleconverter TC-20E III allow photographers to extend the reach of their Nikkor telephoto lens with the confidence that there will be no compromises on image quality.

World’s first teleconverter with aspherical lens element
The Nikon AF-S Teleconverter TC-20E III is the world’s first teleconverter with an aspherical lens element, which delivers brilliant image quality in a compact package. Completely compatible with the latest VR, autofocus and metering coupling systems, the Nikon AF-S Teleconverter TC-20E III is a must have addition to any sports or wildlife photographer’s kit.

Built for professional demands
The new Nikon AF-S Teleconverter TC-20E III is designed to provide a seamless fit with the Nikkor range of compatible telephoto lenses, and features rubber seals for body mount, tough release mechanism for intensive use and an oversized button for fast removal with gloved hands. It comes with newly designed caps and a practical storage pouch to protect it when not in use.

About teleconverters
Teleconverters 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 ANikon AF-S Teleconverter TC-20E III reduces aperture by two stops. So when attached to an f/2 aperture lens (such as the AF-S VR 200mm f/2G) the minimum aperture becomes f/4.

The Nikon AF-S Teleconverter TC-20E III will be available in January with an RRP of £449.99. For more information please visit the Nikon website.

Quote: there will be no comprises on image quality

Am I being cynical or is that bad spelling a getout clause?

For that amount of money it better not be!
