Default Nikon Teleconverter with Nikon 105mm micro lens

Hello,

I am beginner in photography. I need help in below doubts :

1) Which teleconverter (14EII, 14EIII, 17EII, 20EII or 20EIII) will be best / suitable for Nikon Micro 105mm Lens ?

2) If i connect Nikon Teleconverter 14e-iii (magnification is 1.4x), to my Nikon 105mm micro lens which having native magnification of 1x, then how much total / final magnification will i get ?

what camera body are you using as Nikon crop bodies have a factor of 1.6. so, 105 (focal length),x say 1.4 (teleconverter) x 1.6 (crop body)

another factor is that teleconverters tend to slow down autofocus and loose a stop or two regarding aperture

What exactly are you trying to accomplish?

I ask because the convertors are not cheap, and they have drawbacks to them. You might be better off buying a new lens. Why are you considering a convertor?

I use two Nikon macro lenses: 55mm f/3.5 and 105mm f/2.8. These lenses easily allow me to shoot well into the macro range.

I use my macro lenses on DX and FX bodies.

I also have these three Nikon teleconverters: TC-200, TC-300, and TC-17E II.

I have never needed to use a teleconverter on my macro lenses. The only reason I would want to do so would be to increase the working distance between my lens and the subject. I have never shot any subject that was so dangerous that the working distance of my 105mm lens was not long enough.

As counterpoint to replies thus far ....

P2. If your current max magnification is
1X [1:1] then a 1/4X TC will increase it
to 1.4X [1.4:1] ... thaz not photo lore,
it's just arithmetic

In practice, the in-camera magnification
ratio is meaningless, unless you're using
sheet film and making contact prints. All
that matters is the final ratio, seen as a
print or on a screen. Acoarst for contact
prints, in-camera ratios ARE final ratios.

P3. I have 5 macro lenses plus various
1.4X and 2X TCs, which I'll routinely use
with the macro lenses, altho none of my
subjects are dangerous. Dangers aside,
increased working distance provides for
easier lighting and is also a perspective
control.

Many internal focus systems reduce the
FL of the lens as they focus closer. IIRC,
my 200 is only 85mm at 1/2X, so a 2X
TC provides an actual 170mm at a 1X
subject magnification [1:1] ... which is
about 9X on a typical laptop screen
[ Thaz for FF. It's about 14X for APSC. ]

Good points!

Also, using bellows with shifting, tilting, and swinging features will provide perspective control and depth-of-field control.
