Teleconverter for Nikon D3500

5 months 2 days ago #678740 by Derulz
Hello, I have a Nikon D3500 + AF-P DX 18-55 VR and also purchased Nikon AF-P DX NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3G ED VR Lens for additional zoom.

I am heading on a wildlife tour soon and would like to test out a teleconverter to add to my 70-300mm lens.

Does anyone know which ones are suitable to buy? Is there a specific teleconverter from Nikon that is customised to the 70-300mm lens? Or would I be ok with a general one from Nikon? For example, would a Nikon AF-S teleconverter work?

None of the Nikon TCs will work with those lenses.

What matters is the lens, not the body. Here's the Canadian version of the compatibility chart .

Rather than suffer from the image degradation of a TC, go rent a Nikon 200-500 or Tamron 150-600 for your trip.
